The JK just doesn't need additional tire clearance....35s fit a stock JK with ZERO modification. Bolt them on. What's it take to fit 35s on a TJ?
A budget boost will fit 37s, flat fenders and that same budget boost, or a 3" suspension and you can fit 40s with plenty of up travel. You should be worried about grenading axle assemblies before asking for more tire clearance without extending bump stops.
You're comparing apples to baseballs, and should really consider dropping the smug attitude, or at least educating yourself well enough before pretending to know what you're speaking to.
I wasn't comparing JK's to TJ's. 222doc and yourself made mention of comparing TJ's to JK's as a jab more an intelligent addition to a conversation.
As to your claim of only the gas tank hanging down below the frame.... You may want to go take a look under your 2012 Unlimited. I think you'll find the exhaust hangs down below the frame in front of the cross member that is also hanging down below the frame. The gas tank does hang down below the frame... along with the transmission/transfer case skid, and the mid muffler. The exhaust even has the cute little circle that loops underneath the driveshaft. It was clever of you to single out the one thing that even I made a note of the JK's not benefiting as much from.
I make sure to take both of mine back to the dealership and have them tuck everything back up where YOU say it's supposed to be.
So 35's will fit on a stock JK with absolutely "ZERO" modifications? So no worries about rubbing under full stuff. No need to extend the bump stops. All the sheet metal and plastic will be safe. No fender modifications are needed... That's good to know....
You may want to update the JK FAQ...
So if I'm comparing apples to baseballs... Are you saying that a bodylift will/can do none of the things I mentioned on a JK?
Talk about having an smug attitude and needing an education.... It's hard for me to take you serious with only 2 years on your first build and your posts full of obvious false statements.
