I think I will be a little ahead of you, I will be leaving out April 27th or 28th, not sure which. Actually 35's aren't that big on the newer JK's. Mine came stock with 32's, 2.5 inch lift and now 35's fit great. I will be adding a winch and bumper just in case. I'm glad you're gonna be behind me, maybe you will find me if I get too stuck!
