I have a 2012 Jk and want to know what lift possibilities I have when running 35's. Can I get by on a 3.5 spring and shock lift or do I have to do a full suspension lift to support it.

You can wheel with 35s and no lift. Just don't go crazy. I now have the teraflex 2.5" and with trimmed fenders I have 9" between tire and fender.

You can run 35's with no lift if you get flat fenders and have the proper bump stops. If you are sticking with stock fenders I would vote for. 2.5 Rock Krawler, or 2.5 Metalcloak.

AEV 2.5" lift and running 35's. No issue except for minor rub on the air dam.
YMMV
Regards,

Is there a reason to avoid the frame side rear track bracket? Just a weaker point or what? I'm running the frame bracket, figured if it was a liability they'd probably go w axle brackets in the kit.
The axle side bracket provides a better overall geometry. It isn't an issue of reliability, the preference is based on performance.
