Planning for 35" tires

So I have poking around here and other sites trying to plan out what I am going to do to my TJ. I want to go to 35" tires just because my last truck barely fir 33s after 3sl and 3bl. Maybe I can be talked down but either way, I want to be able to drive it down the road after the trail day is over.

I saw the bit trucks! did on the TJ and they used a rusty's lift and I have read about a few other lifts here. It would be great to hear from some people that have built big and their experiences.

There's alot of different ways and options to clear 35's. The first thing I was say or recommend is looking thru the "Lift Reviews" at the top of this thread that has pics and comments about people lift kits and pros and cons they found while doing them.

One of the best way now a days is the Low COG approach. Get a 3" or 4" lift and some Tube Fenders to help clear the 35's. I've even seen some people go with 2" lifts and get the Hyline fenders to clear them.

Your next concern for 35's would have to be axles and gears, especially if you want to drive to the trail, hit the trails hard and drive home. This depends on the type of wheeling you plan on doing.... ie rock crawling, trail riding, mudding... etc.

I ran a 4" Clayton SA (short arm) kit on my Rubicon and it had some crazy flex for a 4" SA kit and I also ran Poison Spyder Tube Fenders in the front and cleared 35's with ease.
