Smile Lift Help: [35's & 20's] No Flames Please!

Hi guys/gals

Need your help with this
I'm already buying wheels and tires for my incoming 2012 JKU Rubicon and
have a few concerns regarding clearance and choosing the right lift for these tires/wheels.

I know that 20's are not loved around here but that's what I want and will
end up buying anyway. So please help me out choose the right height/brand lift.

This will be used mostly as a daily driver
[80% street/20% off road creeks, river beads, some mud etc... ]
Absolutely no wall climbing and nothing extreme.

Please keep the flame comments to yourself...
Just need information to choose the right lift height/brand and not a flame discussion.

If you can't or refuse to help then please guide me to the right website or link

Thanks a lot for your help

3" is the recommended lift for 35's iirc, regardless of wheel size.

if its mostly a pavement ponder you can do a 2in BB and have more then enough room to clear the 35s. no need to go over that.

2.5" works as well and wheel size is irrelevant as Linda stated.
