Thats going to be too much lift/fender clearance for the little 35s. If you're set on flat fenders you don't need a lift.

@RUSTYS IMHO, I think a more appropriate statement would have been to say that "I would prefer 37"s with that particular Teraflex lift..."

What you stated is inaccurate/misleading and goes against what Teraflex themselves say in their videos and website.

The 37's will only fit with the ST3 lift 100% if you have the high clearance Rubicon fenders. With the lower factory Sport/Sahara fenders you run the risk of the tires rubbing the fenders on the up travel of the suspension. However the 37's should fit okay if you ran flat fenders.

Thank you. That’s what I was told as well. That’s why I got the fender flares.

You knuckle head with that lift plus the flat fenders he's going to have a lot of space to fill and I definitely wouldn't run both with a 35. Then again what do I know.

Thank you very much!! I got very lucky with the shocks because someone else had bought them and did not want them anymore. Brand new in the box....the lift kit 4WP told me they would arrive next week but I have yet to received a tracking #. Only missing that and the front bumper (arriving Monday)

Man, don’t listen to all the bad feedback on the lift size vs. tires. Fender clearance allows for more articulation during use. I run an ST3 with pizza cutter 34s (they measure 1/2 in smaller than 35s, mounted) and love it. Get TONS of compliments and performance on the trail is awesome!

Thank you very much. Jeep got delayed and won’t be getting it until the end of next week. It has given me a chance to buy a few more things and hopefully will start posting pics next week. 🤞
