33's would be a better fit. the engine can do it w/ 33's and no gear change if you wanted to, people do it. people do 35's to, but your best move would be to regear to 4.88 gears, and better yet, since your axles won't really hold up to 35's get better axles, or build yours up.

if you're gonna wheel it you'll need to spend some money on gears and axle upgrades w/ 35's, honestly, you could probably skip it all w/ 33's if you wanted to, i've seen it all the time w/ few problems on the 4 banger.

I ran 32's on my TJ and it was really pushing it.

I have 33's and 4in lift. The truck is a 4 banger manual with 4.10s. It is doable but sluggish. I am going with dana 44's front and rear with 5.13's this week so I will let you know the difference!!

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

33's here too... 5 speed manual, 4.88 gears, upgraded axle shafts and lockers on both ends. No issues on the trail other than the REALLY steep hills. No issues around town, and I can get 65-75 on the highway, but hills can be a PITA.

the sky is the limit, i'd go with a 15x10 wheel that you like, and a 33x12.50r15 tire that you like, mud terrain, agressive looking obviously, look at super swamper tires. check american racing wheels, i have outlaw 2's on an all black yj looks pretty good.
