CJ7 Lift advice-- Tire size question-

I want to put 35's on my 1979 cj7. I have a 2" body lift with 32's on it right now. Will I be able to fit the 35's with a 2.5 suspension lift or do I have to get a 4" lift. I was trying to go as small a possible to fit the 35's in hopes of still fitting in my garage. I got a awesome deal on new maxxis 35's so I'm stuck with them. The wheels I'll be using will have a 3-5/8" back space. Thanks for any input.

It really depends on how much you want to cut. I'm running a 4.5" lift and a 1" body lift. I put TL flares on the front. no issues there, the rear at full flex the 35's rub the back of the fender opening as the spring elongates. The next step is 37's and I'm going to drop the bumpstops to keep it from taking anything out. You should not have too much of an issure IF you mount your bumpstops accordingly.
