DANIMAL That's a nice looking Jeep. Did you need to put the flat fenders on to clear the 35's?

DANIMAL Thanks for the info. Don't know when I will be lifting it, but it is good to know that I can just do a 2.5" bb and still have room for 35's

Can you post some before and after pics?
That will give me a good idea of what mine will look like.

Thanks, Dan

I have an 07 4-door Rubi and would like to put 35's on it. I have been looking at many, many different lift options and was wondering if a 2-1/2" spacer lift would be enough? The Rubi's already are higher than a base model. Right? So, if a 2-1/2" lift would be enough to run 33's on a base model, then the extra height of a Rubi with an added 2-1/2 lift would be enough for 35's, right?

I am looking for an economical, yet functional lift. I do not do any hardcore wheeling and my Rubi is mostly used on the road. Only because I do not have any local wheeling areas.

I would add an adjustable front track bar and I am thinking that I will also need one for the rear, or at least a bracket to move it.

All comments are welcome or if there is anything that I forgot.

Thanks, Dan
If you have the cash, trackbars won't hurt. I have a front trackbar and rear bracket on my 3" lift. Rides great; but they are not striclty necessary

Even though a 35 is 3" larger it is only 1.5" larger in radius which is the number you need to worry about. If it is a 2 door you wouldn't want more then 2.5" lift anyways, and a 4 door can go to 3.5 without issues.
When he says 2.5" or 3.5" of lift, I think he means actual lift. The good lift kits actually net more lift then they advertise. A 3" TF lift will get you more than 4" when on the rig for example.
