7" Spacers and 3" BL should work.

I know, 35's is the size what brand is the best for all terrain? Also would 2.5 body spacers allow me to do those tires?

No! BL's greater than 1-1.25 are unacceptable.

I wasn't asked, but I just want to add that you're right.

from what im told (im a grand cherokee driver myself) wranglers can fit 35's stock.

for A/Ts get BF goodrich
and maybe a 4" suspension lift.

and be glad your buying it all for a wrangler and not a grand

Bfgoodrich all terrain ko is a very good on road truck tire. Because both are expensive, I would get mud terrain km2 if you are considering doing any technical off roading. They are in the $200 range, usually with a $20 difference.

The other thing is, most 35" diameter tires will run a minimum of 12.5" width. Some 34" and Q78s (35.5") can run 10.5"-11.5".Most tires of this size should be offered for a 15, 16, and 17" daimeter wheel.

I would recommend running a 10.5" tire width on a maximum Wheel width of 8", and a 12.5" on a minimum wheel width of 8". When your off road, you lower your tire pressure (8-12 lbs) to increase traction. If the rim is too wide, you will have less sidewall flex, so you would have to run a lower tire pressure to get the same amount of traction with a narrower wheel. And, the lower the tire pressure the better chance you have of losing a bead.

Does the rubi come stock with a 4.10 gear ratio? Anything less and you don't want 35s!
