Absolute minimum lift for 35s n/t waggy

Hello. Im new to the fsj world, I just got an 87 gw and I'm getting ready to lift it up. I have a set of 35 12.5 15 km2s off of a wrangler I sold that will be going under the wagon. From what I've read Rustys 6" and some trimming will clear 35s. My question is can I get away with a shorter lift and maybe a little more ? I Rolled the 35s next to the stock tires and a 6" lift seems excessive. But I yield to experience. Thanks!

I can tell you i am running 33's and a 4" lift wasn't enough without some minor trimming up under the rear wheel wells and at the front corners of the fenders. I think 6" is the minimum on an NT if you wish to run 33's without trimming so 35'a will be even more difficult.

I Don't have a problem with trimming, Florida doesn't have any laws regarding fenders, And my body isn't in the best shape. So significant cutting is fine

Keep in mind there isnt much trimming you can do in the back without cutting into the interior of the body
