What size lift and tires?

I just bought an 05 rubicon, it has a 1 inch body lift. Other than that it is all stock. What is the biggest suspension lift I can put on it? Also will it allow me to put on 35" tires?

I'm not 100% sure but I think you can do a four inch lift with 35s and be fine

I believe 2 in. Is as high as you can go without having to change some other stuff out. Same situation as me, I wanted a lift without having to change a bunch of stuff out. I have a 2inch coil spring lift and run 33 11.50 16. 35's might fit, but it will scrub on the hard turns.

Your Rubicon can get a 4" suspension lift without problems because of the improved transfer case and driveshaft. Backspacing on the wheels might mess you up with 35s.

Thanks for the input I'm looking at lifts now and I'll have to see what tires to go with any lifts that you guys would recommend?

A lot of people on this board will recommend the Savvy Offroad 4" lift that comes with Johnny Joints. I've been researching a lot about lifts and the Savvy lift seems to be one of the best bolt on lifts out there. That, with your 1" body lift will allow you to run 35s.

Not sure what year your Rubi is but on my 99 TJ I have the Rough Country 4.5 standard lift and fit 35x12.50R15 ProComp Xterrains with no problems under everyday driving even in full steer, however if I went off road even with the sway bars still connected if I got into a decent flex they would get into the factory fender flares, I recently dropped to a 33 but haven't tested them out yet

Keep it safe, keep it fun, keep it on the tires

You plan on putting over size on or are you gonna flat fender the front?

Well that would prolly depend on your wheel offset, if the roll of the flare is past the tire with out disconnecting the sway bars you may be safe...not sure though, I've got a buddy with an 02 TJ and he has the 6" rough country lift with flares and clears 35s no problem with the sway bars connected, if he disconnects they might bump but I don't believe it would be enough to do damage
