I'm on Tapatalk or I would be more help, but you can pull up my posts and find pictures of mine on 37s.

Check Rock Krawler's Facebook page too...I posted mine there yesterday and they just built a JKU on the 2.5 with 37s.

if you havnt gotten your 35s in yet or they havnt been shipped, cancel the order and go 37s if you have the coin.

you need to make sure you wont have fender clearance issues, and you will need to do some axle strengthening work, but 37s give you more axle clearance and look better to boot.

They already shipped, I debated it for a while for all the reasons you said both clearance and the extra work required. I'm putting them on with flat flairs and no lift or maybe a bb for now. If I'm not happy I'll lift it and get 37's and sell the 35's

overall i think its a great "middle of the road" kinda lift. ill be going with coilovers at some point down the line, but for now im very happy with it. it offers great articulation and its not a cheaper budget boost that leaves out important parts, but not the most expensive kit you can find either. ive tackled some obstacles i really didnt think i was going to beat with my setup and have been happy.

I've seen this lift a lot. But some rear ends are squattier than others even without spares and additional rear end weight.

What causes some to be squattier than others? I actually like this look too.
