Need opinion and pics!

Hi all! Looking to get my JKUR next year and giddy with anticipation. Just waiting to make our move from Vancouver, Canada, to Spokane, WA. While I wait, I thought I'd plan out my build and do all of my research now (good thing as I've changed my mind 2-3 times per item, ie. what lift to get). I've decided to get the RK 2.5" lift (with Fox 2.0 shocks) and run 35s with 17" wheels. I'll also be upgrading the tie rod and drag link to the Synergy units, as well as weld some gussets on the front Cs. Outside of the welding (which I'll get a shop to do), I'll be doing all of the install myself and I can't wait for that
This will be my DD but wife and I are quite outdoorsy, so we'll be doing some mudding during weekends for sure. I'm very confident in the pieces that I've chosen but now, I'm flip-flopping that 35s will be like a monster truck and that maybe 33s will be sufficient.

So help! If you have a 2.5" lift and 35s, could you snap some pics (someone whose height is known, standing beside it?) and post them? I'm 98% sure I want 35s but just need visual confirmation. Thanks!

I'm running an RK 2.5 lift (with Blistein shocks) and I have 35" (315/75R16) tires. I also swapped my tie rod ends for Sybergy. Here's a couple of pics with stock fenders and with tube fenders. I didn't just gusset my Cs, I put the full Artec armor kit on the front.
Sorry, I don't hve any pics with anyone standing beside.
