2.5 skyjacker leveling kit questions

I have a 2.5 leveling kit from skyjacker and i was wondering if 35's would fit and not rub. I think im going to do a 1" body kit to make sure nothing rubs. Would that be enough or do i need a whole new lift kit?

As a newbie, try looking at the FAQ section:
http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f96/faq-will-rub-610856/
then ask....should help you a lot.
edit - IMNSHO body lifts are not a good idea or needed on a JK.

^^ X2^^ Depends more on your rim offset .Are you running stock or aftermarket rims. A 4.5" offset with 35"tires should be fine on the street. Off road flexed it may rub the fenders if the bumpstops are not adjusted correctly.

I was going to run 16" pro comp 7031 rim, they have a 4.5 offset and it will be mostly road use. I may how every get xenon flat fenders. A guy has a set on craigslist for 300

They will rub when you fully flex on the stock fender flare setup. With flat fenders, you are good or with a little trimming and some paint touch up.

But, if you don't wheel then they may never rub.

So if i have a 2.5 lift with 7031 pro comps and 35x13x16 with 4.5 backspacing they wont rub on the road and slight offroad? Sorry just trying o make sure. Want to make my stock fenders last until summer so i can buy new ones over summer.

Yeah, only when you are fully flexed unless you added some longer bump stop extensions.

These are 33's and you can see that 35's would rub on the back under full flex. I have the same back spacing, stock bump stops, and I can only get a finger between the tire and the fender lip...at most. At least for my setup (see sig), if I want to run 35's then modifications to the fenders would be a must or add bump stop extensions.
