Can i run 35" tires?

Need help deciding what size tires to buy. 33" 12.5 or 35" 12.5

I have a 2003 tj with a 1.25 body lift and 2 " spacer lift on it.

Would love to go 35, but i think only 33" will fit.

Any advice?

I would go with 33s and regear it. If you use the stock gear. You will have a bad gas mileage. 4 inch of lift will be good for 33s to give a room to steering or flex. If you have Dana 30 / Dana 35 i wouldnt bother to get bigger than 33s. Dana 35 is your nightmare. Hope this helps.

Read this thread: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/i-...-my-tj-751873/. Then decide if you are ready for 35s.
