I'm thinking of going from 33's to 35's! Seems like a lot of work and money though!

You won't regret going to 35's, I can assure you of that. Especially if you go off road very much. The difference in the stock 255 Goodyears and the 35's is very noticeable off road, you don't hang up as bad. I get off road quite a bit and I am very happy with the results.

rock krawler 2.5 and 35's. 2 inch bumpstops, no rubbing.

Anything over 3 inches is overkill for 35's.

I think by rims he means wheels.

Pushrod looks to have the AEV Pintler beadlocks which are 17" wheels if I recall.

Thanks for pointing that out, I was replying as I was falling asleep in bed with the iPad LOL.
They are in fact exactly as you point out 17 inch beadlock wheels from AEV with the requered back spacing for running larger tires. The only caveat with them is tire stores don't want to mount them (beadlock wheels) as they have to be done manually. They take too long manhour wise for them to deal with since all 24 bolts on each wheel have to be torqued three times if done properly. I picked up the tires and mounted them myself then returned to have them balanced.

Right now I have minor rubbing on rear fenders that need to be trimmed. I like the look this gives my Jeep with a bit lower center of gravity than the higher lifts.
is that a long arm system? or just the mid are?
