2018 Wrangler JL
I have a 2018 Wrangler JL completely stock. I'm trying to decide if I want to go 2.5 lift or 3.5 lift. I am planning on getting 35's as well. I've read that with the 2.5 inch lift, 35's MIGHT rub, but I have also read that with the 3.5 inch lift, I need a new front drive shaft.

What lifts have y'all done? Thanks!

i'm running 35s and the 2" Mopar lift (which is more like a 3" lift) I didn't want to go any higher so I could avoid driveshaft or gearing issues. Keep in mind you'll also need an upgraded tire carrier for the bigger wheels. I know there are other threads with WAY more info one this, so you'll probably get more info searching.

I too have the 2in Mopar lift with 17x9 wheels -12 offset and 4.5 backspace with 315/70-17 BFG ko2.. ended up 3in on lift and 3in on wheel with total of 6in. Drives great

Both are the perfect look for a jeep. Not obnoxiously high and not fender-rubbing low. Love them!
