Going to 35's???

Have a 03 Tj lifted with 33's. Has 3" Sus and 1.25" body. What all would I need to do to go to 35's. What would be the best way to go. Still got a while till the 33's wear out so just trying to get things worked out for the future. Thanks in advance.

A few things....
  • Probably another 1" of lift with proper bumpstops
  • Better brakes
  • Better Steering components...35"+ like to taco oem.
  • Strong rear axle than a stock D35

Oh got D44 in rear and D30 in front with 3.73's. Would change the gearing then also.

If I had an endless check book I'd do highline fenders instead of lifting further, but they're pricey.

That depends...I dont feel like Rokmen's Highline kit is unreasonable as long as you can weld or have a buddy that can. The highline kit may be cheaper than what a good lift kit would involve.

Sure, highline fenders will clear up some space, but that doesn't address the stronger suspension and steering components, brakes, and armor required if you want to wheel where 35's are needed. Fitting 35's is a walk in the park. Running them safely and reliably is another story. I have Rokmen fenders......you didn't see me stop there, right?

Definitely can't argue that. I was just meaning, if he has a lift and is happy with it...highlines may be a cheaper alternative than re-lifting. I do agree though that there is more to be done to get 35s going right, I just didnt touch base on it since it looked like most of it was covered already.

Nope, if you look at the second post the upgraded steering and brakes were already addressed.
