tires

Is 3" suspension and 1.5 BL enough on a 2004 Jeep wrangler to clear 35" tires

Do you have a Dana 35 or Dana 44 rear end? And you might be able to fit them, but it wont flex well at all offroad and might rub on turns...

the biggest id suggest to go on d35/30s is 33. you could do 35s, but thats when you snap an axle shaft.

Is that off-road or just driving on snapping the axles.

Offroad typically, however you also need to consider regearing. Especially on 35's with stock gears you'll feel like you suddenly lost 100 hp. You'll want at least 4.56, im running 4.88 on mine

you wont notice a dramatic difference. It'll sit an inch higher. If you have stock gears tho it wouldnt be a consideration as much as a necessity, even just for the street
