    Think I can run 35 Tires on 99 TJ with a 2.5 lift and stock fenders? Temp for a month or so until I upgrade to 3.5 lift

    Wouldn't do it, I have a 3.5 long arm and I wouldn't even try 35s. You will have 0 travel.
    You need flat fenders and a 3.5 to get 35s on there.

    Plus what axles are you running? Specifically the rear

        Well I'm running 33s now and have about 3 inches of travel between my bump stops on the front. They should fit with a 2.5 but be careful.

        Also why short arm?

          Not sure why short arm. Budget reasons maybe? Really not looking to climb rocks yet

              This is the tire size chart, i guess the length of the arm wont matter but the angle at which your tire moves will.

              The reason that 90% of people choose long arm is because it keeps the tire more centered through its range of heights.
              You may want to look more into it before purchasing a short arm kit.

                My son runs 33" on his 06 TJ. But they're only 10.50's he uses 2" Budget Boost. Jeep sits just right, looks good and works good.image.jpg

                  what axle's do you have?

                  35's on a D35 rear is a ticking time bomb. they might last a while, but then, they might last a week. Especially if it's locked, and you're throttle heavy.

                  The D30 on the front "might" be ok, depending on how you wheel it. But they're not exactly strong.

                    35s on a D35 is a 100% no go! It could explode just driving down the road. Just look on youtube.

                    I didnt want to run my heavy 33s on a D35 which is why i swapped it for a LSD D44.
                    The 30 will handle it if you sleeve and truss it, and maybe some C gussets.

                    now i wont try and scare you away from 33s on the D35 if you run reasonable width ones.
                    Im running 98lb 33x12.5 Wrangler MT/R Kevlar tires and they prob weigh the same as 35s
                    Run something in the 9.5 width and you should be ok
