35s have been ordered!  (Thanks Ken!)  315/70/R17 Cooper Discoverer STT Pros!  As long as they're in by Friday, they will be installed Saturday morning along with my Spidertrax wheel spacers.  Can't wait!  I will post pics.

FYI, still haven't decided on a lift yet.  Debating between the Mopar lift and a Metal Cloak lift.

Donnie, are you still rolling with the Spidertrax spacers? You like them?

I'm about to put 35s on my JLU on stock (JK) wheels, so I'm thinking I need to add spacers.

Hey Chris, not anymore.  I sold them to the guy who bought my stock wheels and 35s.  They were great.  They really improved the stance of my rig with the stock wheels.  The spacers aren't necessary like they were with the JK but it will improve the look of your rig and make it feel more stable with the wider stance.  Let me know if you have any additional questions.   Cheers

Thanks Donnie. That is helpful. I know a lot of folks have strong opinions about spacers, but I want to try them out.  Dunno? I love the look and added stability.

You're welcome!  I was one of those people who never liked the idea of using spacers..............until I actually used them.  I had no issues and would definitely recommend the 1.75' Spidertrax spacers for a JL with stock wheels.   Cheers
