Can I fit 35/12.50 on 18x9 rim 4.5 b.s. with a terraflex level kit? What else will I need I already installed the lift. Just a mall crawler for now. Do I need to change gears? more lift? if so how much and what else do I need to buy?
The leveling kit is best suited to 33's where as I can flex off road while disconnected and not rub anything. 35's will need either flat fenders or your oem ones trimmed otherwise you are going to get fender rub while off road.
If you are running 3.21 gears then it is going to be sluggish and eventually a regear will be in order to get your performance back. If you have 3.73 gears and the 3.6 it will be livable as you would still have better performance then a 3.21 geared Jeep on the oem 32's and if a Rubicon with 4.10's then you shouldn't have to regear at all.
Most here run at least a 2.5" lift with 35's and a spring lift usually nets you more than advertised.
They will fit. I have a buddy who runs 35s on a leveling kit. To be honest it looks mean, but then he took it off road and it broke almost all of the mounts on both rear flares. So there is that. 35s with some flat flares on level kit would be better...
To run 35's with stock fenders you must install 2.75" front bump stops and 2" rear bump stops. Nothing else really matters from a suspension perspective as long as you have decent back spacing on your wheels... This is to keep the tires out of the fenders.
So, if you put on a 2" front spring spacer you lose about 3/4" of suspension travel in front and about 1" in rear with a 1" spring spacer. On the road, not too noticeable if at all, but occasionally over a speed bump or something you might bottom on the bump stops, no harm no foul, that's what they are there for.
