I am agonizing over 35's versus 37's. I want 37's but there is a voice in the back of my head screaming "that's just crazy!". I have definite plans on a Mopar 2" lift and Rock Side Engineering electric drop down steps for the height challenged family members. Which then begs the question of why add another inch of height with 37's over 35's.

I need to see some side views of rigs with this kind of setup to make up my mind. My JKUR had 35's and I loved it, but the JL just looks like it begging for 37's.......

PS. Also if you added aftermarket wheels, let me know 17" or 18" and offset.

Many thanks in advance to contributors.

I just added 35” BFG KM3 tires to my stock height JLUR. I’ll take photos and post them up. I also have a Mopar lift on the bench that will go on this weekend and then I’ll post those photos up. I agree that 37’s are begging to be installed, but 35’s are more reasonable. I’m running the Mopar 17” fake bead locks.

It looks better in person than the photos. 35” BFG KM3. Wheels are Mopar 17x8 with a +12 offset and work great. I don’t like the tires sticking out very far. Tires are surprisingly quiet. I expected a lot more road noise from them.

Those photos look great! With the Mopar lift there looks like plenty of room for even 37's (which I'm planning on)! I wonder what offset I could get away with to have the tire stick out just a bit more.

37’s will fit great. I love 37” TIRE’s on the JLRubicon, however I went with driveability and stayed with 35” tires this time.

Personally I wouldn’t go further than a 0 offset with a 17x9 wheel....MAX. I don’t like the tires sticking way out.

Looks like islandtees went with the Mopar wheels.

Mopar lift and wheels, Cooper tires. Drives great on the highway and off road.
Any chance you have a pic of your rig from either the front or the back? I'd like to see the stance (width of the tires and how far they stick out). I really like those wheels, I'll have to give them a second look. Do you recall what their offset or backspace is?

Wow, that is a beautiful rig!!! You have configured something close to what I want to do. I'm going with the Warn 10-S, a Flatlink from Factor 55, and a bumper with a hoop to protect the winch and the grill, although I'm thinking of either a stubby bumper or a mid-bumper. What bumper brand? Do I see a front bumper mounted skid plate too? What is the Rigid LED mounted to?

My only snag is that I need to run a front license plate and can't figure out how to do that with the Flatlink.

I just installed the Mopar 2" lift and 35s; very satisfied. More like a 3.5 lift!
