35in tires & 3.73 gear

I would like to run bigger wheels and tires. I would like 20in wheels and 35in tires.

What are some of the reasons i should go with smaller wheels? Also will I be OK running 35s with all stock gears/axles (3.73rear Rubicon stock ratio)

Couple of things here:
Double check your gear ratio, Rubicons come with 4.10.
Second, you're going to get much better responses in the JK tech section. But to answer your question, yes you can run 35s with your rubicon gear ratio. Whether it's efficient or ideal is a different story.

since 2012 all AUTO rubicons are 3;73. The reason is the W580 trans has a real first gear. It pulls. The 4:10 is now optional on the auto. I have the 4:10 in ours its to much gear for the stock tires. I can still light up the 35"s if needed. at 3:73 it will be a bit harder to use 5th. Wont tow well, but Jeeps never do anyway. With the rubi in low you will be fine off road too.

I would run it with 3:73, you will use 5th less. Its way to expensive to regear that new jeep. 4:56 gears are hard to get cost a lot. 4:88 will be over geared unless you are going 37"s. If it was 37" auto I would for sure go 4:88.

For the $ the factory 4:1 is well worth the cost of the tow pack/ option. 35"s no issue, even could get away with 37" on 4:10 but you wont need 5th.
