04 Rubicon I want to run 35s?
 
I have a 2004 Rubicon with a 4.5" RE Superflex lift. I currently have 33x12.5 BFG A/Ts. I want to run 35s..Do you think if I install 1.75" Coil spring spacers would that work? Also preferred wheel BS and sizes? Thanks.:D

I would consider a 1" body lift. that 1.75 extra lift may lead to issues. I ran the re 4.5 with 2" spacers in the front and had some dw issues to fix with 35's

i had a 4" susp. lift and 2" body and 35's work awesome.. the 4:10's can handle the tires.. i had an automatic and was even runnin' 37's on the stock gears until i recently went to 5:13's..

if you're already running 33 x 12.5's then moving up to 35s shouldn't be an issue with the BS. That is if you're not rubbing already. I think that 35's are still 12.5".

I thought most 35s were 13.50, but I'm sure you can get a 12.50 as well. :)

I think 12.50 is the common size of 35's. I run them on 4 off roaders and have a few spares - all 35 x 12.50. One is an '03 Rubicon.

4.5 itself should be fine without body lifts or spacers, try it!

Thanks for the input. I do not have any rubbing at all with the 33s. I am going to order 35s next week. BTW I am also going to try the TeraFlex shocks they come 3" to 4" lift and 5" to 6" lift. I have a 4.5" lift I think I should use the 5" TO 6" Shocks correct? Thanks.

I have 4" suspension and 1" bl with 35x12.50r15 and have no issues.

Just go with tube front fenders (you know you want then anyway) and trim the back or go with the body lift. Stay away from the spacers. Most mass marketed 35s will be 12.5".
