    Sweet Lift, Wheels & Tires for a JK Unlimited

    Christian LeeWriterChris PasleyPhotographer

    It doesn’t take much to fit 35-inch tires under a JK these days, and Pro Comp offers a bolt-in kit that makes it as easy as ever. The kit uses a bare bones list of equipment, which includes front and rear coil springs, all necessary hardware, front and rear ES9000 shocks, and front and rear adjustable chromoly track bars with Heim joints.

    Making the Pro Comp 3.5-inch system even more advantageous to new JK owners: The system is covered by Pro Comp’s Promise Lifetime Warranty, and also qualifies under Pro Comp’s Lift Shield Warranty, a free five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.

    The Pro Comp 3.5-inch lift will accommodate 16-inch-or-larger diameter wheels with 8- to 9-inch widths and 3.25 to 4.75 inches of backspacing. We elected to use a set of 17x9 Pro Comp Alloy Series 7036 wheels with 4.75 inches backspacing and mounted up a set of LT315/70R17 Pro Comp Xtreme M/T2 radials.

    The Pro Comp Xtreme MT2 radial features an aggressive, open tread design optimized using computer modeling. It delivers substantial grip and control without excessive noise, as well as improved self-cleaning performance in mud and snow. Pro Comp Xtreme M/T 2 tires come with a 40,000-mile tread wear warranty.
