no lift yet, maybe 2 inch budget lift done at the same time.

i would say you'll need at least 3' backspacing on wheels. You also might rub the control arms on full lock.

Landi,

You will want to run at least a 2" BB Lift Kit to clear 35" tires. I am running that exact setup on my JK, and I really like it. I have seen some guys run 35's on a stock suspension, but they didn't have much room for flexing the Jeep.

You'll need to trim your pinch seam, and most likely have a wheel with a back spacing of 3.75" or smaller. Even with that you still may need to adjust your steering stops to prevent rubbing at full lock.

Here is a picture of my Jeep with the 2" BB and 35" Pro-Comp Xtreme M/T's.


Let me know if there are any questions I can help you out with. I'll be more than happy to give you a hand!

-Zach

Landi,

Thanks, I'm really happy with the way it looks. I'm running Pro-Comp Series 98 steelies in a 15x8 with a 3.75" BS. We carry the Series 52, which is a D-window and not a soft 8 like is on mine. They look similar and have the 3.75 backspacing.

If you don't want to run a 15" wheels there are a ton of other options out there. Just let me know what wheel size you're looking to run and I can help you out.

-Zach
