not a tj expert, but my friend has a TJ with 5.5 inches of lift on 35s. it looks good, but im sure you could fit 35s under your jeep. if you want to be comfortable, get a body lift or a small spacer.

it all depends on what you wana do with it, or how your building your jeep. my jeep sits on 35s with a 1.25" BL but I also did new axles, MML, TT, custom mid arm suspension, upgraded my brakes, SYE, double cardon rear drive shaft, custom trac bars, stronger steering box, HD crossover steering. you can't just throw 35s on your stock jeep and be able to wheel it. if your intent is to NEVER take it offroad I guess you could do it, but I wouldn't.

Install a 1" body lift and you are good. Don't forget to upgrade your steering components, regear both axles, and upgrade your brakes.

be aware you need change gear ratio too, so count that as part of cost too.. or you'll lose 5th gear on a high way... then again, 35" i doubt you ever wanna take it on high way..

Not good enough for 35s. 4.88s are appropriate for your setup

If they're 05/06 and have the 6spd they have a lower 1st gear.

Just put 16/35/15 boggers on my YJ and I DEFINITELY have to put 4.88's in place of the 4.11 that I currently have. Just my preference for the performance I want. Seems like a lot of strain on the tranny and motor, Guess it depends on the motor you have too. That's my opinion anyway, everyone's different tho!
