Good thing you put those lift shackles on, it might have been a little tight without them.
The .75" shackles only lift it .375"s Thank Allah. BPUH.
Good thing I gave Jered (Bojon) my 1" BL!
And skizriz, 35" BFG A/Ts are on "Intergalactic" backorder. I've been trying for over 6 months to get a set. I haven't tried in the last month. Before that everybody local and online was quoting that Tom Hanks movie "The Money Pit".
"When will I have my tires"?
"2 Weeks..ha, ha, ha....."
Back in the mid 80's, me & three buds all had 33x12.50s of different manufacturers on our jeeps. NONE of 4 matched any other. The taller tires were usually skinnier.
I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you
I think they must measure them and size them before the rubber nubbies fall off!
After this discussion I immediately drove to my toy storage to measure my ProComp Xtreme MT2's and they are 34.5" with about 500 miles on them. It was good to see the Jeep again though, and three pumps she started right up!

Imagine my wifes surprise on our Honeymoon when she found out she was getting "2 inches shorter than advertised"!
That one never get's old....
Honestly, I think BFG is ripping us off. We pay for 35" of rubber, and get 33". That's a 150-200 RPM difference in final drive speeds, depending on your setup.
Not to mention the additional mods that are necessary to run true 35"s. I'd be seriously pissed if I spent the time and money to accommodate 35"s, only to find out my brand new $250/ea tires are 2" shorter than what I built my rig for.
agree, 35" are at a point of getting into trouble. i have a 4" suspension lift with 5:38 and a warn overdrive. ive always ran 33" and havent broken anything yet. well except when i installed a new hei distributor into my 350 sbc and decided to do some speed shifting. snapped one axle and twisted the other, enough of that. 35" would of broken both.
It's not a question of can you do it but more one of should you. The stock drivetrain of a CJ is not up to the stress of run a 35" tire. You can do it but don't expect the drivetrain the live long with out some kind of repair.
