2 Door JK With 2.5" on 35s?

Hey everyone!
I have an '08 2 door jk. I'm going to run a 2.5" lift cause I don't want all the added mods needed for a larger lift. I also want to run 35x16, I know I'll most likely have to regear to get it back close to stock performance. To finish up, I'll also be running the Smittybilt XRC fenders to fit the 35's.

So I can I see some pictures of the 2 doors with this set up?

Thanks everyone!!

gears will be the main issue on that year for 35s. stick plan at least 4.88. auto that year need at least 5.13/5.38s for street<. MPG will go down a lot as well. gears will help this a bit.

why 16 inch wheels? will be very hard to find a tire in anything other then Es. in 17s you will find them in more load ranges other then for 1 ton trucks. jeeps work best on C load, and D would be the highest i would go and only if i had to.

Google would give you pics faster of what you want to see.

I am also really looking into 17s. With a 2 door, I kind of think 17s look a little big for a wheel.
I wasn't aware of the load ranges though, something I'll have to research, thanks Doc!!!!
