    Running 35s on a 2.5 inch lift jku recommendations DD

    Currently running 35s on the Jeep, stock 17 wheel. On road its a smooth ride, up to 85 mph (thats where we begin to get a subtle wobble).

    Any recommended upgrades for those running 35s on a 2.5 inch lift? Everything is basically stock underneath.

    weekend warrior set up, moderate trails

    Thanks

    Like Overlander said, how much faster are you trying to go?

    As far as your question, I am running 37's on a 2.5 AEV lift. Smooth as butter at highway speeds (55 to 70). I started to get a little vibe at about 55, but found that I had thrown some weights from a front tire. Had them re-balanced and back to normal.

    85+ in a lifted jeep?!? You do realize its not a sports car right? There is a tradeoff at some point. Drive over big rocks or high speed runs. 🤷*♀️

    I think the biggest mods that I did for making things feel more stable/tight while driving were the dynatrac ball joints and the fox ATS steering stabilizer. I rarely drive too fast but my first trip out west where the speed limits are 80 had me pushing the jeep up there. I was really surprised how smooth and straight it stayed. 3.5 lift and 37s.

    My top speed so far is 76 mph...

    One day I'm going to reach 88 mph and see what happens next.

    We're running 35s on an Evo leveling kit which gave us about 3 inches of lift up front. We go 80 on the highway all the time with no issues. Make sure your tires are balanced correctly.

    As far as gas mileage, we're getting high 13s. It's a 3.8L with 4.88 gears.

About us
wayoflife is a moniker that Ive been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
