    Just looking at new tyres for BJ71 and was wondering if a lift is required to fit 35's, (currently on 31x10.50 BFG). i am running reset springs with 1" lift so would they fit without any extra lift and/or what sort of rubbing should i expect?

    At 1" lift the front tires will rub the fender opening towards the back while turning. I have 35" BFG muds which actually only measure 34" and at 2" lift they still rub. I plan on redrilling the axle spring perches to move it by 1.5" when I get my new front axle.
