I have a 2005 Rocky Mountain Edition. I don't have much experience at all working on cars in general. I have worked as a mechanic on coin wrappers and currency counters in casinos for a while. But I installed my lift by myself over a weekend. It's really not too hard if you do your research. The tools cost less than the labor would have, and I know a lot more about my Jeep. Plus that warm, fuzzy, I did it myself feeling!
I went with a Rubicon Express 3.5" kit. I ended up with 4.5" of lift. I have not installed a body lift, but when funds allow, I want to put a 1" body lift on, with a 1" MML so I can do a tummy tuck. I'm running 33's and at full flex I'm just tucking up in the fenders (with the front swaybar disconnected).
If your just gonna drive around town, 35's would fit. But flexing would rub without cutting fenders. We get d44's in the rear with the Rocky Mountain package, but you still have a 30 in the front. From what I've read, wheeling with a 30 on 35's is asking for breakage.
Oh yhea, and don't skimp on shocks!
