Define "tons of flex" and "trails."

I guess you could say it just likes to play at the mall.

OP, you have a lot of research to do. As I've already told you and as you've obviously missed, there's a lot more to running big tires than just fitting them. There's a lot more to suspension than "lift", which literally means nothing of value. Educate yourself on the subjects and revisit the idea once you know what you're doing.

TnDz TJ Since you are not answering the questions of what you will use your Jeep for.... I will assume you want to stay on the street and not take it to the extreme offroading trails.

Since you asked about suspension... I will assume hacking up the body is not an option...

With that... you may run 35's on a 4" lift and small body lift of 1-1.25" if you feel the need.

UnIuckychucky Cheers and when i said minimum i meant minimum lift size

Dextreme A budget way to go is to keep your stock suspension and just trim the body and hood as needed with a sawsall. Then beef up your steering, shafts, and brakes. Done.

wranglermatt4527 I had a good friend tell me once while building a dragstrip Nissan 240, get what you want not just what you can afford. Meaning if you have to save a little more and get what you REALLY want, then so be it.

wranglermatt4527 If one of your suspension parts fails due to shotty workmanship or premature wear.... really unsafe. Look for good quality parts, youre life literally depends on it.
08-21-2012 09:45 PM
UnIuckychucky What do you mean safer?
08-21-2012 09:44 PM
wranglermatt4527 I think to run safely most will say 5 inches of lift. 4" susp and 1" BL/MML. As far as brand.... theres always a constant debate as to who is better or safer or who is not. Just read some reviews from 4 or 5 different companies and see who has the most complete lift. Look at other threads on here and look for some of the more experienced guys, read what they run. And remember youll get what you pay for most times.

UnIuckychucky Well I just want to know what lift people run with 35s and what works well
08-21-2012 09:29 PM
wranglermatt4527 Look into Metal Cloak fenders or something of the same nature. They lift the fenders up so you may not need as much lift. My goal is to run MC fenders and a 2" or 3" spring lift with Control Arms and Johnny joints from Currie. Theres a host of other parts to go along with it and none of it is cheap. J.E.E.P. = Just Empty Every Pocket

UnIuckychucky Got Dana 30/44 there strong enough but don't know what recommended lift alot of people say 4" but that's really expensive to get in Australia because sye and springs cost $1200 to ship out
08-21-2012 07:30 PM
TnDz TJ I know it's different for each individual... but I couldn't run 35's on my 4" lift and 1.25" BL right now... I would tear my junk up big time!!!

I guess the previous q's need answers... goals for usage of your Jeep?

Mall Crawler and dirt roads to wild full tilt butt-pucker rock crawlin... which is it?

Have you up graded your brakes and steering? What axles do you have?
08-21-2012 07:02 PM
wranglermatt4527 MetalCloak fenders allow a 35 with no lift. Just sayin.... ^^^ Imped "no minimum" is right but it seems like you are aiming for the wrong target here. What is your rig used for? Do you need tons of flex for trails or just to tuck the tire to crawl the mall?
08-21-2012 06:58 PM
Imped There are no rules, therefore there is no 'minimum' to fit them. However, there are far more important things to pay attention to than simply fitting a tire. In that regard, you're doing it all wrong.
