Neral22 Depending on the brand of lift, you should be fine. Get some bump stops and you shouldnt have to cut.

OldKid-NewToy Thanks Xcrossbow. Yeah, when he showed me the 33's they did look a little small. Well, I guess I'll trust the sales guy. I think I'm going to call him and ask what happens if I start to get some serious rubbing. I don't mind going to a 3" lift, but not at full price after I paid for a 2.5" that won't work for me.

That seems a little drastic of a mod. If I go with a 3" lift instead of 2.5" will this eliminate the need for chopping my brand new JK?

Xcrossbow Being an old guy myself that still loves his toys, I did a 3" lift on my 2013 JKU with 35's. I may occasionally get a little rubbing if I turn too tightly so I just avoid turning too tightly. IMO over the long haul, I think you'll be happy you followed the sales guy's advice. With a 2-3" lift on an Unlimited 35's are the smallest I'd go but that's just me. 33's would be a smarter, easier on equipment, more economical pick but for my taste don't look right.

35's with a 2.5" lift on a 2013 JK Unlimted


My first post here, so please be gentle.

I just ordered a set of 35" tires and a 2.5" lift kit for my new 2013 JK Unlimited. While most of what I have read recommend going with a 3" lift for such size tire the sales guy at the 4 Wheel store strongly suggested I go with the 35's. I was really leaning toward 33's. Am I going to be okay with this combination or will I have fit issues - rubbing, or anything like that? Thanks in advance.
