35's

Hi... I have a Wrangler Rubicon unlimited with a 4.5 in. Rubicon express super flex lift.... Right now I have 33/11.5/16... Abd I really want to go up to 35/12.5/16 would that be a good idea or should I stay with 33's... Please help me out... And maybe post some pictures of 35's on a 4.5 inch lift

35's, done right will set you back about 10g's. You ready for that?

What he's saying is that lift isn't the only thing that needs to be considered when you're going up to 35's. If you haven't touched your axles since you acquired your Rubicon, maybe you should do some research on re gearing, shafts, and a variety of other mods before you commit to buying a set of 35's. ESPECIALLY IF YOU PLAN ON WHEELING IT.

Ok man these people are close to rite on point I have a 4" lift with 35's on it I am looking at about another 3400 to regear to be back to stock running power and MPG it wont cost you 10k more like 5k to do it rite and less if your not going to be rock climbing everyday if your a weekend wheeler your stock shafts will be fine you already have lockers so your price keeps dropping lol you should be fine with a simple regear if you can regear with the same lockers you have probly keep it under 2500

Stock steering is dinky
Stock brakes suck

Those two are an absolute bare minimum list of what you need. Stock steering will do fine if it's a street queen.

I'm running 35s right now with 4" suspension and 1" BL. I don't do much offroad but hit some mud everyone and then. I'm re gearin next month and 3.73 gears with 35s is damn painful. the only thing I need after re gearing is upgrade my brakes because they are no where near as good as before.

Yeah stock steering isn't to great with 35s but it's not too bad street driving

You won't need wheel spacers.

You have an NVG241IR 4:1 transfer case if it's a rubi. And 4.11 stock gearing. You prob need at least 4.88 gears.

With the 42rle and 35's, you need 5.13's at a MINIMUM. And since you have a pair of axles that can support such deep gears, do it. 4.88 gears aren't enough for that combination and that's been well-documented.
