going from 33" to 35"?

I have an 06 Rubicon with 2.5" lift and 33" tires which are getting a bit slick and REALLY want to go to 35" - any thoughts? Will I rub the wells? Will I need a 1" body lift? Will it drive even funnier on the highway (if so how much worse?) or road?

Going from 33's to 35's doesn’t seem like much, but the modifications needed to accomplish it are allot and costly. I am not saying it is not worth it, it is, however you should research the amount of time, money and expertise needed to do it.
I.E. Lift, Suspention/Body/combo of both? Shocks, Longer travel, Regearing, Lockers, The tools needed to do these mods, the list goes on.
Then you may have to deal with "Death Wobble", Drive shaft vibrations, re alingnment, SYE kit, See, lots of research to do.

Don't forget brakes, 33's are not too bad but when you go to 35's you will notice a big difference when you have to make an emergency stop and it won't happen.

Lemmie fill you all in. I already have the longer shocks, brake lines, drive shaft mods, steering damper and HDsteering arms and HDsway bar. The stock lockers, D44 axles are still there, but I went to high performance brakes last year. Not sure what is left other than clearance issues and how much additional torque goes into the driveline from the tire size when offroad all twisted up on a rock or something.

Forgive me, you did say "Rubicon", my bad. Yes, all it will take is getting the room to fit them.
