i'm satisfied with my JT just the way it is.

save ya money !
The new Jeeps, specifically, the Rubicon, are so well "built" compared to the "old" days that I don't think they need much. I know if it was mine, it would get a winch and not much else. If I was buying new today, I would buy a base Rubicon and drive the snot out of it. Can't wait to see how you use the new one!

I watched a couple videos about this and it looks like while yes 35s will fit with no lift if you off road it they will run and still require 2in of bump stop to prevent rubbing. For driving on the road this isn't as much of an issue but once getting off road I'd rather not limit my up travel to less than stock. A lot of the videos are still advising to run at least a 2in lift when going to 35s. This was for a JL though so dunno if it's different on the JT side.
