Pretty staright forward question. I searched but could not find an answer. I have a 13 Rubicon unlimited. I want to buy this kit http://www.amazon.com/Teraflex-11552...productDetails. Will I be able to fit 35's on with flat fenders with this kit? Thanks!

2.5" is the conventional wisdom. Maybe with flatties, but I think I would go with a budget boost

stock rims will need spacers. off road at stuff it may rub, depending on use. depends on what "flat" fenders you are talking. front will shift a bit to left as you go up. that is why they make adjustable track bars. it will be off about 3/8 of a inch.

It really all depends on the wheel offset and the flares. You'll need to trim the Rubicon sliders and possibly the rear pinch seam unless it's already been trimmed from the factory. You can always add a bit of extra bump stop to alleviate a minor rub.

The 1.5" Leveling kit is made to fit 34" tires.

With trimmed or after market flat fenders, you can do 35's.

You will need wheel spacers or wheels with 4.5" of backspacing or less.

If you don't want to run the Jeep off road/flex it you can get buy with the leveling kit and flatties. If you decide to go with the 2.5" Lift Kit there are a bunch of options. Let me know what you like and I'll get you a great price!

Yes you can with most likely the help of bump stops. I ran 325/65r18 with this kit and 2" bump stops (2 hockey pucks) and stock fenders.
