I have a 2015 Sahara and want to put 35's on it. What size lift and brand of lift would you recommend for this? Don't want anything huge, but want it to be big enough where tires don't rub.

A better place to post this is in the JK Tech forum. But since you are here.

What type of rubbing are you worried about most? There are two types, wheel lock turn left and right on the lower control arms and up travel contacting the fender flares.

Are you planning on running stock rims with spacers or aftermarket rims?

Is the lift more for looks or use? Either is fine but why pay big $$$$ for a super off road performance lift you do not need if just for looks.

Once these are answered it is easy to pick a lift as anything from 2.5" and up will work with 35" tires reasonably well.

Aftermarket rims and it is for looks. Don't want any kind of rubbing.

Then keep is simple and functional and go with a 2.5" TerraFlex Performance Budget Boost. They come with bump stops set for 35" tires to keep them from rubbing in up travel. Your aftermarket rims should have a backspace of at least 5". Lots of folks run 4.75" and 4.5". This range of backspace will ensure no rubbing in full wheel lock turns? If you like the tucked under the flares look go with either 5" or 4.75" backspace. If you like the tires to stick out a bit go with a 4.5" backspace.
