Made a big purchase yesterday for some toys, got myself a winch w/ synthertic rope, air compressor for inflating tires, bumper (came with the lights, winch mount, shackles saved some money on that) and a couple other things that are a nice to have for the trails.

Next year I would like to get a 2.5 inch lift, 16 inch rims? ( or 17's) and 35's with AT or MT tires. Now can 16 inch rims be able to fit? or would I have to go to 17. Currently ave 18 inch rims but think the JLU will greatly benefit with smaller rims on the trails.

Thanks

Might send a message to @JIMBOX he ran 16s and IIRC he said they fit the JL

Would Caliper Clearance be an issue if wanted to upgrade to the Rubicon, Sahara, Willys " Big Brakes "?

I would think the bigger calipers/rotors in front would be a problem, maybe if the offset was very negative on the wheels you might be ok, but probably not worth the risk. Might send a PM to @JIMBOX and see what he says though.
