Re: lift question

Won't be too much weight. My guess; tires might rub a little, but will probably be OK. These things are always a guess to some extent.

Re: lift question

On a YJ you still might hit when the suspension is flexed - probably at the rear of the rear wheel opening - seems that's where they usually hit first. And even if it doesn't hit when it's new, when the suspension settles a little you might have some issues with 35s.

Maybe consider going to TJ flares, or a 1" body lift. TJ flares will really open up your rear wheel opening.

Good luck

Re: lift question

I would would do 1" body lift over 1" shackle lift.
long shackles are not a good thing to have.
