rustys offroad & tire/lift?

Im new to all of this and was wondering if any of you guys have any experience with rustys offroad and his lifts. Im looking at getting the 3.25" suspensionlift kit with mtz 35" tires. Would I need to regear? Would the larger tires cause tranny damage? I have a 2011 2 door stock jk sport. Would my warranty be gone? Any input on this would be appreciated.

I have no experience with Rustys but I do have 35s and a 2.5" lift. I have the auto and a regear would be nice because it gets pretty doggy with my stock Rubi ratio. You will have it a little worse because your ratio is not as aggressive. If you have a manual, you should be OK. Auto, and you'll be shopping for gears. There is a chart on here somewhere (I think its in the FAQ section). Hope this helps.

It's decent for the $. I've put it on a few jeeps. My .02 is don't do their 5150 upgrade. I thought the kit actually rode better with the standard shocks. It's a nice kit for the $. The trac bars aren't overly beefy but they seem to work. Their disconnects are a little cheap too. The jks upgraded disconnects are nice tho.

Not to derail your post. I have a brand new still in box 3.25" rustys advance lift. Everything is still in the boxes. If you are interested let me know.


Also, to answer your question. No you should have no problems. However, you may want to re gear sooner then later.
