How big is your budget? 35s are a big step.

Your talking, rims, (and maybe spacers), lift, gearing change, speedo recalibrate, tcase drop, brake upgrade, etc.

Lots of $$$$s.

To run 35s? Are you actually going to use them on trails where 35s are really necessary? To "properly" setup a jeep to run 35s and do trails where 35s are necessary, $10k gets thrown around often as number. That's lift, shocks, driveshafts, control arms, track bars, sway bars, tires, wheels, axles, gearing, brakes, steering, armor, tummy tuck, winch, bumpers, cage, etc., etc. And that's with the owner doing most of the work, other than maybe gearing. If you find yourself having to pay a shop to do a lot of the work it can get real crazy. Do people do it for less? Yes, although in a lot of case they were cutting a few corners. Or they are really doing trails that only require 31-33s, so even a very modestly built jeep on 35s is fine. And then there are those of us who end up spending a lot more than $10k and are still "only" running 35s.
