sixth gear ???

I have a 07 Wrangler 4 door standard shift with 2.5 lift . If I go to 35s will it take away sixth gear. And also how is it climbing and trail riding with a clutch. Is the trans good?

What gears do you have in it? That's what will determine how well / poorly sixth will work with 35's, especially on hills.

Sixth gear is a use it when you are able to type gear. When I haul my trailer near the load limit of the jeep I am in 4th and 5th on the highway and rarely ever shift into 6th. With no load on the jeep and flat surfaces, I'm in 6th usually around 40. I have 4.1 gears. Wasn't much different when I had my 08 JKU Sahara with 3.73, just a bit sluggish off of the stop and didn't crawl as nice.
