How Big Can I go?

I just recently got offered a killer Deal on some 35x12.5 tires +rims and i was just wondering if they would fit my jeep with a 3.5 lift on it.
if not whats the biggest can go with out rubbing.

you need to go bigger, i hope that chart isn't telling you to do a spring over and body lift. skip the body lift, a spring over w/ mild lift springs 1-2" would be perfect. you can do 35's on a regular spring over w/ newer springs also

I do have a 3.5 in lift on there already less then 3 months old. its more like 4" since it hasnt settled all the way.
with Soa do you notice anything different with the steering or anything for that matter this is my DD ? An how much time/money would be spent on a soa conversion?

soa is far superior to sua. it will actually ride nicer. remove the rear track bar, and you need to slightly modify drag link, plenty info here on it. its not cheap, and you just bought springs and shocks for 3.5 which you can't really use soa, unless you want about 10" lift. you have to spend money no matter what to clear those 35's. unless you go body lift which i hate and even 2" bl won't be enough. if you want to run those 35's its gonna cost money money money.

10" that sounds fun lol. well when and if i sell my acura money money money wont be a problem but 10" doesnt sound to safe on the highway considering id prolly need another DD. I wouldnt go higher than 1" BL anyway. I could do a SOA with my lift tho right if i ever wanted a monster truck?

x2

This is probably the best way to go in your situation. I do recommend the jb4x4 high steer bracket if you do go spring over.

SOA here and was my only vehicle/DD for a couple years with no issues. Thankfully I have a backup vehicle if needed which is parked most of the time. However, if you are trying to go 35's and be able to get full flex you might want to go full width axles $$$$$$ . 33's looked strange to me and my wheelin friends at first but, with my flex and stability I am happy
