Gears, lift and bigger tires PLEASE HELP

Hello everyone first post but I'm needing new bigger tires. I need to some help as to go with 285/70 17 or 315/70 17 duratracs. I want the bigger tires but only have the stock 2012 Sahara gears at 3.21. I know if I go with the 315 I'll need some sort of lift maybe the teraflex 2.5 or just spacer until I get more money. Also for my gears would I be forced to regear or would a flashpaq f5 do enough to make things okay? Only really do cornfield kinda off-roading as I do live in the Midwest(it's pretty flat) I really like the 35 look with some lift but also don't have thounsands to regear. any help would be much appreciated also pictures if anyone has a similar kinda set up. Thank you all

Regear to 4.88 it'll be the best thing you ever did. Run the 315's. A 2.5" budget boost is fine to start with. You'll still need an AEV pro-cal to program the jeep for the tire and gears.

2015 JKU Rubicon. EVO enforcer 3", King 2.5" shocks, 35" duratracs, Method wheels, PSC hydro assist, Rock hard skid/roll cage, EVO sliders, 1/4 pound bumper, corners, tire carrier. warn M8000S, Dynatrac pro-grip brakes, 4.88 gears. The rest is in my build list.

Then I'd suggest lockers if you really plan to use it for difficult offroading.
