Wow, 6" lift. If you are not planning more than 35's then I think a 2-1/2" lift is all you need depending on your back spacing. I really can't help you on jeep lifts. Mine had a 2˝ when I got it so I didn't have to research it myself. I put 34˝" tires on after I got it and they fit fine. There's a lot of guys on here that know but in the mean time you should try the search button. There is enough stuff on lifts and tire/wheel combos that can keep you busy for a long time. Welcome aboard.

You've got some homework to do, namely ingesting about 2,000 posts.

I'm surprised one of the link masters hasn't been by yet.

For a 2012 you can go 3 1/2" lift and no problem with your DS. 4" lift and more you need a new DS. But the main question is what size tires are you going to run a 2 1/2" lift and you can run 35's larger tires larger lift.

Do you rub with your 4" and 35s? You have stock fenders correct? Lol just a random hijack.

I don't rub with my lift and 35's lol but did the 4" knowing I would go larger later down the build road. I have been looking into a 2012 or 13 unlimited but keep seeing I would have to get a new DS with a 4" lift but I want a 6" long arm on it. So that being said I am saving up on two accts rite now and holding off on all mods on my sport. One acct is for the down payment on a new 4door and the other is for mods I will buy the jeep and take a week off work to mod it. Lol
