Never said that, but hell if they want they can run 37s on no lift. Its up to the op on what they want to do. Im saying there should be no standard. 35s on 2" sounds great to me.

I'm guessing that the OP did not want to go cutting on his relatively new Wrangler. And, he may want the wheels to turn far enough to get into that good parking space at the mall. So, although he needs no approval, it may not fulfill his needs.

Theres your issue, your guessing. Personally i like cutting my wrangler. Im saying its possible, but id say he gets the issues or is at least looking into them. Not sure why steering is suddenly an issue... As it was from the beginning, and as i said its up to them on how much they want to do.... Sorry if i pissed in your cornflakes

Lol, lots to figure out Wilson... metal cloak has a setup where you can run37s on stock jk suspension... the jk already sits higher then any previous jeep with proper bs and some minor trimming 35s are a sinch...

That said op, do what you think is best for your uses your the one living with it and driving it daily. What your asking has lots of options, in the end if you don't like it redo it at a cost...

Drive it like you stole it!

Haha! I like you guys over here. Good sense of humor.

The OP did say his rig would not see much trail use, so I still think (as I did in post #2) the 33's are his ticket.

I'd skip 33's. There is barely any difference between those and the stockers. If you already have a 2" lift installed, go with 35's. You will not need to trim the pinch seam. May need spacers ($100/pair) if you use the stock wheels, however.

And yes, 2-2.5" is standard lift on a JK for 35's. The JK wheel wells are much larger than previous Wranglers.

Don't forget to strengthen up that front axle before adding the 35s. Also another reason to go stay with 33s.

Lol. I'll bet if you take a poll there are more JKs on this board with 35s and no strengthened diff housing then there are 33s. And 0 issues. That has become an old wives tale in the JK world unless you are doing extreme wheeling.

The jk front axle is superior to prior years but aside from that this is going to be a mall crawler, isn't much of a need to to strengthen the axle. It'll be an open diff on pavement, may as well be a soccer moms 2wd jk... wait they did make those...

The Dana 30 and Dana 44 fronts are the same strength. C's and tubes are exactly the same. Difference is a smaller carrier and axles on the 30. Only extreme wheelers with 37" + tires are gonna bend it. However, you're likely to snap axle shafts before that.
