2017 JKU lift/tire question

Salty Soul Jeep Shirts


Hello WF,

Just a few weeks ago I picked up a Big Bear edition JKU. I am ecstatic about it, and want to lift it with bigger tires. I already know I am getting a Mopar 2″ lift kit. (I work at a dealership, and get a % off, being an employee). What I don’t know, is what to run for tire size. We have a brand new hydro blue in the showroom with 2″ lift and 285/70r17, but it seems the tires are small. I was looking to pick up a set of 35s but concerned with gearing, wear on axles, etc… I plan to take road trips as well as light off-roading, and just want a happy medium of lift and reliability…
