I've seen few threads with pics of the sport with 35" tires.(or 315/70/17) Will you post pics and provide thoughts on your tires/wheels/lift and how you like your 3.45 gearing and ride with 35's? I have a sport s with rubicon takeoff suspension/wheels/tires and would like to add a 2-2.5" spacer lift to the rubi suspension(2.5" RC spacer lift or 2" teraflex)and go to 315/70/17 ko2 class c on stock rims without adding wheel spacers. I'm a bit odd in not liking the tires sticking out past the fenders. Thanks for posting pics!

Looks great...how are your gears handling the 35's? Are you wishing you wouldve gotten a rubi with d44 axles, 4.10 gears and lockers? That's where I'm at..

Nope....completely happy with my sport. Everybody get the Rubicon which is cool not knocking them I couldn’t afford the payment for the rubicon plain and simple. I’ve made my sport just the way I like it and I take it everywhere that I can on and off road. Everywhere the rubi can go I can to havent need the lockers on the heavy trails I’ve been on so far it climb right up and over stuff if with ease. Proud JL Sport S Unlimited owner!!!

And the 35’s don’t make it feel like it’s sluggish. I’m a not a fast driver on or off-road. The earring is fine for now. I do plan on running 37’s with the JKS 3.5 lift with full control arm kit and rear gearing down the road it for right now this is where I’m at.

Interesting... alot of experienced offroaders on here arent recommending offroading 37's on d30 axles. I wish the sport offered d44 & lockers...they make a big difference with bigger tires and off road capability.

Dana 30s came in the stock Wrangler TJ’s so what’s the difference only difference now is I make him stronger the only guy saying that of the guys are running 44s that haven’t ran 30s but then again I could be wrong but I’m willing to find out too it’s a hobby I’m gonna have fun with it
