OME only do 2.5 and 4 inch lift kits officially. But they are load specific so if you go 2.5 heavy springs and don,t have a steel bumpers Winch ETC you will get more than 2.5 or 4.

Yes, you can fit 35's on a stock Jeep if you trim the fenders, 2.5 + 35's = no problem

You can fit 35's with the 2.5" lift and no other mods.. just make sure the backspacing on your wheels is correct..

flyinion was saying that you can fit 35's on a stock jk if you trim the fenders..

Sorry about that, you misunderstood me. I meant if you didn't want to lift, you can fit 35's if you trim the stock fenders into flat fenders. Otherwise go with a 2.5" lift and you'll be good
