Maybe re-write the thread and explain what you are looking for a little better. You will get better responses.

There's a difference between just avoiding interference (stuffing) the 35" DTs and wanting big articulation or even just doing it for proportional looks. There are a lot of options. For starters, what are you looking to accomplish, what type of trail and how much are you willing to spend?

let me see if I understand this...
no lift with 35" tires is only good for the mall BUT a 1.5" lift with 37" tires is acceptable for off-road?

if you are aiming for a low center of gravity build or just tight on money, you don't "need" any lift to run 35's on a stock JK. you will need different rims or run spacers. if I was going to go this route I would trim my fender flares and trim/knock back the rear pinch seam inside the rear fenderwells.

I agree. The wife slapped some new fenders on and cut back the pinch seam. 35s would be great with this setup. Nice and low, plenty of room to flex. Buuuuut 37s were calling our name! Rubbing never hurt anything.


Edit: If you want more flex out of it, toss some longer shocks on it while your at it.

Currently running 35s on stock suspension.

to keep a stock suspension with 35s you'll need to cut the stock fenders or go with flat fenders (I went with flat fenders), and either spacers behind the wheels or new wheels with a 4.5" backspacing (that's what I did).
you'll also need, I believe, 1.5" bump stops to keep the 35s out of the fenders, and don't even think of disconnecting. I'm still running stock bump stops, and haven't had a chance to offroad due to work schedule, so I'm not worried yet. By the time I have time to offroad, I'll have a lift in it.
If you expect to do some serious offroading, I believe the consensus is a 2.5" lift. I'll be going with a 3.5" soon as I intend on upping to 37s eventually.


and a 4-door on 35s with stock suspension does look awesome. Low and mean!

OP, just for the record the 35" tires will fit with at 2.5" lift which also minimizes steering alignment and stress on joints but the 3-3.5" lifts will give it more room to articulate.

My last jeep I ran 35's with a 2.5" BB ran stock fenders and disconnected. It did great and didn't have any issues. I couldn't convince the wife to let me cut the fenders back then.

If money is tight read or look up the fender cutting video and trim them and run your 35's till you can get the lift you want.

Quality 2.5 lifts are popular. Depending on the lift you can can run up to 37's with fender modifications. I personally run the RK 2.5 flex. This lift gives you options if you want to upgrade and go bigger later.
