Springs will settle a little and that's only 4.5 inches of lift. I'd say stick with 33s but you have the fender flares to help too so see what others vote...

Flex it and see. Unhook your sway bar disconnects if you have them, put one front tire on a good size rock or use a loading ramp and measure the space you have before rubbing front and back. With 35's you'll need about an inch and a half more room than the 32's. This will also show you if some simple trimming of metal will work.

Very nice looking. I'm doing the same lift this spring but I'm putting on 33's. 35's might be a stretch but you should totally flex it out and see how much room you have just in case.

Some 1 inch shackles would help with 35s too. If you had another inch you would be similar to my set up. This is what it looks like with "35s" that actually measure 33.5 on a tape...

A sawzall or cutting wheel on a grinder would allow plenty of room for 35's. Or do what others suggested and find somewhere to flex it and measure first and see where you are at. A fork lift works well for flexing too. Another thing to consider is your rear axle. If you are still running the D35 then you should stick with the 33's and hope it survives.

Someone help me out here, but are the rear shackles on backwards? They just don't look right.

No they're in correctly.. I just installed them with the lift and I first installed them the way you're suggesting.... But when the weight of the rig came on to the springs, they pushed back to far and were interfering with the frame

And thanks for all the input guys... I did some flexing today and it seems 35s are a bit too much, and with the d35 rear, 35s would probably chew it up. 33s it is.. Pics to come

Mine probably are. They dont look right to me either... My fronts are straight but I cant install the rears that way cause the center bolt on the shackle will hit the frame when it flexs.. Im still investigating the "right" way...lol

Leave the center bolt out, you don't need it. The bend should point to the middle of the jeep front or back. On the front the center bolt is fine, most boomerang shackles I've seen suggest leaving the center bolt out on the rear because of frame interference.
