    35s will fit but you might experience some clearance issues during off-roading plus without reprogramming the AT shift points could be affected.

    As aggrex stated. Going to have tranny shifting issues and lousey gas mileage. Pick up a Fashcal Superchip reprogrammer. And reprogram your onboard puter.

    This is for a JK. Might wanna call them and see if it works with JLs too.

    Sweet Jeep Brian. Good luck to you and the wife with it.

    Thanks for the link to the superchip.

    I know gas mileage will be hurt going to bigger tires. Have 35s on my Tundra. Added a hypertech speedo calibrator to correct for the size difference. Was going to research options for the jeep. My guess is it will be same as JK since its the same motor but i could be wrong.
