you'll need new wheels with less back spacing, or wheel spacers.

Also, when you wheel it, you will rub the fenders when fully stuffed. Doesn't damage them, but makes a noise that sounds like you're tearing something up.

To rectify this, You can cut the fenders, get aftermarket fenders, or put on a body lift.

That's a small 35, there shouldn't be much rubbing with the 2.5 lift (assuming he is talking about the teraflex which includes bump stop extensions.)

I have a 3.25" lift with 35s and 4.5 backspacing in steel soft 8 wheels and it just about rubbed my front fenders off. I installed extended bump stops and it fixed the problem. I still need to cut the rubi-rail down. I have noticed much less articulation on the trail. Need new fender so I can go back stock bump stop. On another not all you need to run 315's if xenon fenders.
