One more Q. Would stock Rubi wheels with 35/ 11.5 or 12.5 hit anything?
I have a set of stock wheels, I didn't test, but didn't trust they wouldn't rub. 1.5 inch spacers kept that worry away. Unfortunately, I can't say you "need" the spacers. I'm fairly sure you will if you wheel it.

For the price, I would go with a more complete kit.
you really get what you pay for. if you are that concerned abt the negative rumors floating out there on the Mopar lift, then just add a Fox Performance Series 2.0 TS Steering Stabilizer, an Adjustable Front Track Bar & Rock Krawler front spring correction pads.

Or you could just go ahead and get a kit that includes all of those things and outperforms the Mopar kit both on and off road.

if I've just spent +$55K on a Jeep engineered with Mopar parts, I'm not going to frankenbuild by introducing off brand stuff.

Let me see if I can pull this thing out of the ditch...

I think the point that is trying to be made is that for the the same money or a tad bit more, there are more complete kits out there that include trackbar and control arms. Putting another lift on a Jeep other than a Mopar lift is not what I would call a "frankenbuild." This is in no way, calling the Mopar lift inferior, it is simply pointing out that there are other options that will stretch your dollar more and provide better performance.

Thank you for you response. I had a novel idea and actually read the FAQs on the mfg website. The answer was buried in the document. The US JLUR is equipped with the wide axle and should be ok with the stock wheels and 35ish tires.
Pretty obvious resource but the old school brain is getting slower it seems.

K, that’s your prerogative. Just realize that there are MUCH better suspension systems available. Also enjoy your axles being off-centered and your caster being not quite right.

Ok, I’ll call it inferior for you🤣
