Yeah, you can fit 35's with just a 2.5 inch lift. I doubt you want to go bigger than that...

You need to take into account that with 2-door JK's, if you go over around 3 inches, you will run into driveshaft issues down the road. I would stay safe and stick with the 2.5 inch lift. I'm getting the Teraflex 2.5 when I get some money saved up.

yea you'll be way happier in the long run. And i have a 4 inch and don't have any vibrations and have never broke a u joint so unless you go over 4 inches you don't need to worry about cv shafts or anything like that. Don't do the BL. the po of mine has one on there and I hate it I can't wait to take it off

What size tires do you want to run? I've seen lifted Jeeps with relatively small tires and they look really bad IMO.

So body lifts aren't worth it at all? Lol and someone told me that if u go over 2.5 there r more parts u need? I don't remember at this time, but I've got it written somewhere. Was that a false statement?

yes, but where did he rub?
wheel choice is just as important as total lift when it comes to rubbing.

JKs need a 4" lift so they don't look like Scions.

Twas foretold. Keep an eye on rear driveshaft...

the big thing with BLs is they let you run high clearance skid plates. JKs dont have that issue.
if you dont need it, dont do it
