It would help to know the year of your Jeep, as well as any stock information you have, and any mods that have already been done to the Jeep.

35s on a yj are iffy I would go 33s at the most especially with a Dana 30 and 35(I'm presuming thats what you have)

Welcome to the forum brother.

With 35's on your YJ you have to think about a new rear axle. Unless you plan on keeping it on the pavement and even then....the D35 likes to break with 35's.

Have you checked out the "YJ lift review" section at the top of the YJ section yet? It can give you an Idea of what you will need to run 35's and the intel on differnent lifts for your YJ.

Personally for 35 on your jeep I would be looking into a Spring over lift.

Doc, thanks for your service! Semper Fi. As DistortedTJ (Tim) says 33's would be the way to go. The 35's will bring on a whole new set of problems that your description of what you want isn't going to cover. You want dependable and able to get through mud look for some 33's, maybe swamppers or pitbulls. Then drive it you'll fall in love. If your still looking for more pep you may decide to regear it. Get home safe and brimg as many with you as you can.
