Welcome aboard.
Tell us more about yourself and how you plan to use the Jeep; then we can suggest how to spend your money.
5" of lift is pretty ambitious for just 35's, especially on a Sahara...

Welcome and shop around for your planned lift....This has to be done "correct" with no corners cut... if you want to go for the 5 inch..

Be sure you select the right gearing...

Enjoy the new toy..

Do you have money for 40's?

Don't forget to regear ---- and maybe buy axles if you go over 35's.

Front and rear dana 44 axles with locking diffs for traction
4:1 T-case
4.11 gears

Over all a far better jeep to put big tires on. However happy wife equals happy life so keep that in mind.

The higher you go, the more things you have to swap/upgrade to keep things from braking and keep handling safe.

I know plenty of people that wheel on 35's with 2.5" of lift; I have 33's and no lift on my Sahara ---- rear tires rub the fenders at full stuff due to the backspacing of my aftermarket wheels.

Take a look at the Nth Degree 3.5" lift; it's fairly comprehensive.

Maybe it's my age, but I really don't understand people that lift their vehicles because "it looks good"....
