Well, I had the same question when I bought my JLUR and fortunately my friend (GPD219) had his modded with the same suspension lift but on 35s. So after driving his JLUR and checking it out, I decided to do 37s. Here is the side by side comparison for anyone looking to do the same.

Both 2021 JLUR
Both on JKS 3.5" lift
GPD219's JLUR is on the Fox 2.0 shocks and mine is on the Fox 2.5 shocks
GPD219's is on stock Rubicon wheels with BFG KO2 35x12.5x17, I am on BFG KO2 37x12.5x17 with the Nomad wheels 17x8.5 with zero offset and 4.75" BS

We did the back to back drive and the only difference is that mine needs to have a little more caster dial'ed in to have the same rock solid feel that's on GPD219's 35s. Other than that, you could hardly tell the difference driving. It is obviously higher, but not by much as you can see from the picture. Hope this helps anyone looking to go to 35s or 37s.

Cheers

Any chance you have some front and rear view. Would like to see how much the tires sticks out from the fender.
Thanks

I'll take some more pics side by side with both trucks and post them, but here is mine from the front with the Nomad wheels. I chose these wheels specifically for the BS and with only less than 1" of wheels sticking out with these tires.

I’ll send a side pic of mine too. I chose to keep the stock wheels for a while and have no spacers. Both ride fantastic; better than stock in my opinion.
Did you need a spacer with the 35 on yours?

Lol...it’s a new build condo/shopping area in Westlake. We were looking for an opportunity to disconnect the sway bars and “crawl” around the construction site

The 3.5" lift on 35s doesn't look as bad as I thought it would. Makes me think a 2.5" lift on 35s will be perfect for me then since I already have the tires.

Did the 35' need any work done to support the spare tire mounting?
gpd219 did not have to mod the tire carrier and it works fine with the 35s on the stock Rubicon wheels. I had to modify the tail gate carrier because the tire would not fit on the stock carrier with the factory steel bumper. I went with the Terraflex HD tire carrier and waiting on the Terraflex brace to be released for the JL. We also modded the Terraflex to allow the 37” tire to sit right above the bumper for maximum visibility
