take a moving blanket or something to protect the seats and stuff. Tires tend to leave black marks everywhere, but they should fit :)
Thank you for the tip. I will keep it in mind.

I fit (5) 37's in the back of my Rubicon with the rear seat folded down. 2 stacked behind the drivers seat, one diagonal behind the passenger. Two upright at an angle from the back.
I believe I can definitely fit in five 33's now

If you have an impact wrench you could also swap all of the tires out on-site and then put your smaller Sahara wheels/tires in the back. Just watch your speed going home, your speedo will be off by about 3-4 mph on the highway.
Unfortunately, I don't have it.

So in theory 35s can fit if you fidangle it enough? I’ve got wheels coming and I’m gonna have tires shipped to walmart and then go to a shop to mount. Not sure if I trust walmart to mount and balance.

It's possible. I don't recall how much space I had but I did think it was a decent bit of space, definitely not crammed so a true 35 should fit. you might run into an issue if they are wider though, just on the rear roll bar

Slide your passenger seat forward and you'll have some extra space to slide up if needed

All five will fit. I just picked up five rubicon take offs with 33” wild peak tires and the guy I bought them from had all five in his JLU sport when he met up with me.

I am thinking of taking a friend with me so the passenger seat will be occupied. I can adjust the driver and passenger seats by moving them a little forward. Will it be fine with just the rear seats folded down?

Yes, absolutely. I didn’t have to adjust my front seats to fit five 35s in the back of my JLU.

Yes they'll fit with someone in the passenger seat. When I bought my 34's (285/75/17) I drove about an hour to get them. They fit fine with the rear seat folded down. My wife didn't have to adjust her seat at all. A set of stock 33 will fit without issues even with someone in the front passenger seat.
