Question JK with Metalcloak, 35s and a 2.5" lift

So I'm going to start working on my 2010 Rubicon in around two weeks time. The plan is to start with installing the front and rear Metalcloaks, with Spidertrax spacers and 35" tires. I will also change my Rubicon's R&P to 4:88.

I'll be driving it with the above mods for around 4 months before I install my lift. Now the question is, how will the 35s look on a 2.5" lift with Metalcloak fenders. I still haven't seen any 2 door JK with the above specs. The thing is I'm sure I'll be able to fit 37s in there, but I don't want to go that big. So will the 35s keep a huge gap and look awful?

I'd be more than happy to read your comments about the above plan. AND I'D LOVE TO SEE SOME PICS just to make sure that the car will eventually look awesome!!

Look at this thread: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/11-...ot-234496.html

That is the Overland fenders and the 3.5" MC lift. Just to give you an idea with fender clearance. I think it will look fine.

MC does not have the 2.5 springs for a 2-door yet. Do you mean the 3.5? I think the 3.5 lift will net you over 4" and with flat fenders, 35s may look a bit small, if you care about that.

Awesome rig!! Thank you for the quick reply - this is exactly what I wanted to see. Will you eventually switch to 37" tires?

I wanted to put OME 2.5 springs - with metalcloack flat fenders. That wouldn't look to bad right? The only reason I want to stick with 35s is because it's my everyday car; I don't want to ruin it's drivability.
