35s on a stock lift

I'm wanting to go with 35x12.5 on my 2012. I don't have a lift and my wheels are 15x8 with 3" backspacing I do plan on trimming my fenders I'm just curious of what issues I will run into. I would like to see pics if possible thanks

you will also have to trim your pinch seam and extend your bump stops. and they will still rub whenever you go over a speed bump.

Get some 4dr springs for a hard top/ tow package, swap them in, cut your flares, run 35s no problem.

What problems do you feel like you'll be running into? Everything mentioned is a simple fix. From just a little trimming of the pinch seam, and just adding more bumpstop.

People sell 4 door springs on here all the time, just ask.

People will also tell you that if you WANT 35's get 35's because you're going to wish you had if you go with 33's. You will also spend more money in the long run instead of doing it right the first time.

Are you planning on wheeling this thing?

The BIGGEST mistake I have made was to get 33's . I was stock at the time. Now I have a lift and want 35's but I have 95% tread life still and can't jusify it. Get the 35's!!!

I will have some 4dr rubi springs hard top/tow off my rig tonight if you want them. If you want the shocks too you can have those.

If his springs have a higher number than you ( last two digits), take the springs. They can give you an easy 1/2 to 1" lift.

It'll be on a little tag on your coils. Take a peek under your rig at the coils up front and your should see the little tag.

You could also just pick up some 3/4" coil spacers and install them up front for $20 from synergy.

Some build info here:

I tried 35s on a stock 2012 2 door rubicon.

It does not work other than sorta driving on level ground.

I now have 4dr tow package springs and some small 1" spacers to level everything out.

I also have fox shocks.

This with flat fenders works fine.


However, I'll be buying real springs because it rides like shit as the spring rate doesn't at all compliment the dampening on the shocks.
