also i do know about the superchargers that are available after market. i still do not think that makes up for how under powered these jeeps are. when you buy the unlimited it should come with a hemi or at least have the option to have one instead of the mini van engine it has now. i dont think a supercharger could even compare to the JK having a hemi in it. the charger is nice and does beef it up some, but i dont think it could compare to having a hemi and grunt power off the get go down low where the JK really needs it. this of course is all my own opinion and should be taken as such. sorry for the late respond, i very rarely come to this site much anymore as i am very close to getting rid of my JK in favor of something else. so i am also abit out of date here aswell

again good luck with everything and i hope you have a great time with your JK

I would go with the MT not auto if you are seriously considering larger tires. Why spend $1000 to get auto when you would spend $300 for a tuner to compensate for not having a MT? Use that $1300 to but tires. You can chirp 2nd if you want to pretend you are in a convertible sport car . You would be wise to get the sport. However, the S package might include all the extras your looking for. Then you could sell tires and rims. Infinity sound if pretty good but not awesome.

I saw on either Trucks or Extreme 4x4 the other day where they were talking about the bushwhacker flares that allow 35" tires with no lift. I've been searching and haven't found anyone that has these installed and runnin 35s with no lift.

What do you guys think about this setup? Looks to me like more suspension travel would be needed over the factory setup, but just curious if this works for light to moderate wheeling.

With the factory rake, I'd say you're still going to rub in the front if you take it off the pavement. Smittybilt makes some really narrow flares that might let you get away without a lift. Seems like most people do a 2.5-3.5" lift to fit their 35s and leave the fenders alone.

With the price of the flares, it's about the same difference anyway. Might as well lift and know it's right I guess.
