Has to do with the amount of backspacing on the wheels. I think the stock wheels are neutral backspacing. My Pro Comps are -4" so they stick out a little beyond the fenders.
Most on the forum claim that 35s can be done on pentastar wranglers because of the extra horsepower.
Those of us with the 3.8s need to regear because it's already a dog with the 33's I have on. A regear is in the budget for next year, so I can bump up to 35s when I burn up my current tires.
Look into the Teraflex 2.5" spacer lift. Either get the kit with the shocks or buy your own favorite brand for the size lift.
You don't need to spend big money on coil lifts if your not seriously rock crawling. I've been on obstacle courses, over culvert pipes, steep hills, full flex'd and never had a problem. Best thing is I still have factory ride and handeling on the road.
