1.5 leveling kit with 35s?

I have a 2011 2door sport with a 1.5" leveling kit. My question is can I run 35s with 1.5" wheels spacers on stock wheels with stock fenders? I will not be doing any off roading with this rig.

Probably be fine. If you were going to do any wheeling I'd say you were pushing it.

Edit: Daystar says their 1.75" coil spacers handle 35"s without issue. Both The Teraflex 1.5" kits I checked will handle up to a 34" tire......so no 35" for you.

Don't think you'll have any probs. Keep an eye on your rear pinch seam!

Parked at the mall, yes.

With stock bump stops you risk losing a fender flare.

35 12.5 need at least 3inch bump stops with stock fenders. Or you will knock them off bad advice. you can not add 3"bumps and and 1.5 puck lift you will be running on the stops.

I know old thread but does anyone think its reasonable to add 1" or 2" bump stops with the teraflex leveling kit and stock flares, I want to run 34.5 tires? Might not work but I just got the kit and saw a deal on the tires, I planned on 33s but id go for the bigger ones if people this it would be reasonable for logging and fire roads.

You'll lose 2" of total travel and won't have much down travel.

2" bump stops will keep the tires out of the flares.

I would trim the fenders or buy flat fenders if you don't want to get extended bumpstops...

I want to go with the bump stops but wasnt completely sure if it would be okay and workable, im not overly concerned with the travel, its a dd that I take on fire roads and that type of thing around my camp, no intense trails

I also may get my tires mounted before i put in the kit and then when shocks and springs are out put the wheels on to measure what i need for a bump stop

I'm running 325/65r18 with 2" bump stops and 1.5" wheel spacers and it all seems good so far.
