that's cool and all but sometimes you need the extra lift to get over obstacles... here in nc at places like uwharrie, tellico and such...you would be getting hung up all the time w/ all the jagged edges of the rocks around here...

He does wheel those places and doesn't have a problem with it. He still will have around 16-17" under the belly which is more than enough for 35's.

I actually do wheel this jeep, so I know what I want and need. As some people may know, its one mod at a time. Just happen to be time for tires. I will post some flex shots soon enough. Still got lots to do.

I have been to all the places here in the south. I did get hung up quite a bit with the 32s. Now that I have 35s I have increased, belly clearance and diff clearance.

Limiting the uptravel a tad is not going to hurt the flex that much.

I plan on relocating the shocks, highlining the hood with tube fenders and trimming up the rear with full corners.

Do you not think taller tires increase clearance?

I think I would get more hung up in a liberty.

I am in the same boat as the guy who has 35"s on 2.5 OME springs. I just swapped them out for 4.5" RE springs, waiting on my fenders so I have uptravel as well as down.

Finally paid off...

I am willing to bet, that he has close to the same belly clearance as that LIb does

This is definitely my plan, as well, and will be contributing to the thread when I get 35s. I currently have the RC 2.5" lift (got full 2.5" out of it), 3/4" spacers up front, and will be going with a 1" BL, trimming the fenders, and going with 35" KM2s. Rokmen TT and gas tank skid will join.

OlllllllO

So with my 35" tires I'm maxing out my 2" OME shocks (in both compression and extension). This is the same as someone with 31" tires and 2" OME shocks would be doing...
Can you really not see the benefit of bigger tires?

Looks good Matty. It is a step process for sure. Too bad they are EXPENSIVE steps. I enjoy being labeled as a "small" Jeep as well. Makes those times you get up and the "big boys" don't, that much sweeter.
