    Getting a new Jeep

    I found a new 2016 JKU with a 6 speed manual and 3.73 axle ratio. I'm jumping on this this afternoon because I believe, lift aside, I'll be set for turning 35s right?

    You shouldn't have any issues running 35s with that, except as you stated, fender clearance. If you went with a flat or cut fender, you wouldn't "need" to lift it for 35s.

    I have 1.75" with 33s and they fill in the uncut fenders when flexed so I might repeat that or 2", 35s and cut or flat fenders. My main thing was the gears. Hope I can get it going on before FF registration closes.

    Yeah, I went to FF in 2015 but had conflict last year so I'd love to get back this year.

    Congrats! Is the 2017 also a manual? I have 315/70 with 3.8 manual 4.10's and I think it is perfect, so I think you would be fine the added power of the 3.6 and 3.73
