3.5" lift - Flat flares- 35" tires

I need to see some pics of this combination. The original plan was to go with 37" tires for the new JK, but wife and daughters have talked me into keeping the LJ instead of selling it, so I won't have the funds to do 37s correctly for a while.

I already have the Metalcloak 3.5" game changer lift and Poison Spyder crusher flares that have not been installed yet.

I have to decide if I stay with the 3.5" or work with MetalCloak and switch to 2.5" lift.

The 3.5" will give me more ground clearance and better break-over but how weird will 35s look? I've tried looking through the 4-door lift thread but it's hard, some pics make this combo look fine and some don't, a lot posts you can't tell what combo is in the pic since they didn't post it.

So what do you think? post some pics if you got them.

Is part of this that you want to keep the crusher flairs? Otherwise why not keep the 3.5" go with 35's and sell the flairs. Or keep them for the future 37's.

You're going to need every inch of lift with a 4 door only running a 35.

Yes, don't like the look of the stock flares.

That's what I was thinking, The Rokmen TT skid on my LJ with 3" lift and 35s takes a beating.

They're in storage. -4 degrees wind chill yesterday and snow today. I can't wait for spring, so it gets warm enough to rattle can these. Until then it's just a mall crawler.
