Keep in mind, you won't need a lot of lift to fit bigger tires. 3" will get you to 35s pretty easilly.

I traded in my 04 Sahara for an 11 Unlimited Rubicon for the same reason and I'm loving it! Enjoy!

I had 4 TJ's over the years and loved every mile in them. When I saw the JK(and yes missing the 4.0) I liked the fact that I didnt need all of the racks on the outside to carry things now.
