I would definitely do the tire carrier - or since you have a limo, even ratchet the spare in cargo. You do not want a 35 inch tire hanging on the stock carrier.

A good lift is spendy. The higher you go the more it costs because other things come into play. If the shop is telling you it is a "Rugged" (assume Rugged Ridge) lift and that cheap - just say no. Suspension is one place you will regret going cheap. At 4 inches you will need shocks, and should look at drive shafts. Also buy some insurance and truss or sleeve the front D30 when putting bigger tires. Maybe upgrade ball joints. It can add up very quickly. This is not a budget friendly hobby lol.

A much smaller lift/level and some 33s would also work. Technically you do not need a lift at all to run 33s.

Also before biting on 35s, what gearing do you have? If 3.21 it will not be fun. 3.73 will not be a joy ride but would at least be better.

And of course the obvious observation - if you do not plan to offroad you are spending a big chunk just for appearance rather than need - and every piece you put on comes with expense and potential pitfalls. If I planned to stay on pavement, I would go 33s and a level kit and call it a day. Much less headache and expense.

Haha. No I didn't, and wouldn't have ever! Ugh!
Thank you, I would have been really mad to find out later that, 1, I can't read tire, and 2, I was sold 33" and not the requested 35"!

I put a 2 1/2" lift with 35's and found it is plenty enough. Had 32" stock rims so really lifted total of 4".

I'm glad it worked out for you. Only trimming I had to do was in skid plate and I just pulled it off complety.

Sass12, did you ever pull the trigger on anything? I am looking at the same dilemma. I am leaning toward 4.5" AEV with 35" tires. Shop is pushing me to go 37" but I know that's a snowball effect in $. Though they said that could happen with 35s too. I've hard a hard time finding decent pics to see how the little extra lift will look on the smaller tires. I'm more interested in wheel travel and if I went a little big on lift I could upgrade the rest to 37" (wheels, tires, carrier, gears, etc) in another year or so.

After pulling the trigger with 35's I found some 37's for the same price. I should have done it. The only down side for me was the lack of highway speeds unless in third gear (automatic).

Skywgn1, what size lift, wheels and tires are in your pic? Hard to tell from that distance but I like the authentic backdrop. ;-).

The guys at the shop said regearing and beefed up housing, axles, etc would be imminent if I went with 37's. They said don't go there until you're ready to pay. Even with the 4.10 axle ratio I upgraded to, they said it was insufficient.

I was curious how the 35's would behave with stock gears. You mentioned trouble getting to highway speeds. What gear ratio are you running with your current setup?

Within two weeks of buying this new I went with AEV 4.5" lift to compliment the 35x13.50x20 wheel/tire combo. My Jeep rolled off the line with 3.73 gears and a limited slip in the rear.
Getting up to speed is still quite easy. It's is the maintaining the speed that becomes the issue. With zero wind and level road 80mph is pleasant. Any wind or rise in elevation the automatic tends to kick down into 4th gear with the five-speed automatic. If it is in that gear for too long it will drop to third. It becomes annoying and the mpg goes down to 11 or 12 and then it drives me nuts.
When it comes to the additional stress on the components with the additional height/larger wheels I just had the Synergy sleeve and upper/lower gussets installed. I ran for a year without doing this but I didn't want to take the chance of something going wrong with the front Dana 30. I think it adds a "peace of mind" factor for future 37's. Overall, I like the handling and with no plans to crawl but with every intention of adding a ton more weight to it and go overlanding it had become a great platform.

Yes in a "slang" kinda way....it says "JAW-JA" and as far as the red grill insert....it's a $12.00 Home Depot grill mod plasti-dipped red. I did gray first bit it didn't pop like I wanted it to so I changed it to red and like it a lot better.

3" BDS lift with upgraded fox shocks. Perfect height for 35s. And install was easy. 17" Pro Comp wheels and Cooper A/T's 35s.

Do not go cheap at that height. Track bars x2, track bar brackets at the axle x2, all 8 CA's with quality bushings, flipped drag link. Most likely both driveshafts If not sooner ... Later) Longer shocks, etc
There's no such thing as a budget 4" lift .. Period. Plan to spend $3000k for just the kit/driveshafts.

Sorry to be the Debbie downer just like to warn people of what to expect with higher lifts.

With all that being said .. 2.5 coils work fine with a 35" tire. Stock wheels require wheel spacers but work. People will also trim or run flat flares for the appearance of more lift.
A small body lift is also a great way to sneak another 1" under your jeep with no effect on handling/geometry ... Good luck.
This is obviously for Jk's right? The price?

Finally circling back to this thread now that I have my lift installed. Picked it up Monday! Here is how my Hard Rock looks with an AEV4.5" lift, 17" Rugged Ridge XHD wheels, and 35" Toyo Open Country R/T tires.

I can confirm that a 3.5" is plenty! But I specifically went a tad taller because I intend to up grade to 37's in a couple years when this set of tires is ready to be retired. I just couldn't swing all the extra gearing and other beefing up to go straight to them during the initial build. But I love it so far! My first offroad trip with them will be this weekend...

That is awesome. She wanted a 4" lift, 18" Wheels, on an Unlimited, and you show her 3.5" lift, 17" Wheels, on a two door.

Nailed it.

Nice choice! It looks great. After a month or so you should do a review on the tires. Have seen forum members asking about them. CONGRATS!
