I have installed rubicon takeoff lift and fenders, currently running a 3 piece steel bumper. I just bought rubicon wheels and new 35 KO2s. Looking at Wheels spacers until I find a set of wheels I like. Does anyone have a similar set up? Curious to know how much poke I will get with spidertrax or synergy spacers.

I run the Rubicon wheels without spacers and 315/70/17's and the tire is perfectly in the fender with 2.5" lift. So your poke will likely be exactly what size spacer you get.

Do i need a new tire carrier? if I get the rubicon carrier will my plastic stock rear bumper allow the tire to fit? So many questions, it seems so silly.

No the tire carrier you have should be good for a 35. On my JLU Willys I put a set of 35x12.50 nitro ridge grapplers, the spare tire clears the stock plastic bumper just fine.

Did your willys come with 33s? I can’t Remember, I know the rubicon carrier is different from the sport, all the stock part difference seem like a production nightmare.

Mine came with the sport carrier and had 32s. The stock spare tire assembly is adjustable. So you should be fine and have no clearance issues.
