Does anyone who runs 35 inch tires get me a measurement from the ground to the inside of the upper fender well? Would like front and rear. Thanks

Lift configurations are going to vary that number significantly. What exactly are you looking to verify?

If I can run 35 inch tires with a 3.5 lift using YJ springs and longer shackles? or what size lift to use to run 35inch tires

Need more info.... Street only? Off road too? If so how much/hard. Longer shackles are typically ok only to generate small amounts of lift.

Spankys build he did a very careful writeup and used RE-4.5 (I think with 1" body lift) and tried 35's (BFG mud terrains - which measure small) but couldn't make it work without rubbing..... I think this is pretty typical. He ended up going to 33's and it worked well.

Big walton is running 5" BDS with 35's and I gather it just barely clears....

I'm sure the 35's would work with 3.5 spring over....but that's another bag of worms.....

I was pretty sure he ran YJ... I think prolly 75% on bigger lifts here convert to YJ width (I am).

I used to run 35s with a 4 inch SUA lift and 1 inch body lift. I also had TJ flares which gave me several more inches of clearance at the back of the front wheel well. I still rubbed inside the wheel wells at full flex, but nothing that I ever felt would cause any damage.

Probably not much help to you but it is a reference point: I run an SOA using Rubicon Express 1445 YJ reverse eye springs, a 1" body lift and slightly longer Curry grease-able shackles. Ground to front bottom of wheel well : 46 1/2". Ground to rear bottom of wheel well: 45 1/2"
