Jeep Adds Factory 35s to Two-Door Wrangler for First Time

Jeep factory upgrades

  • Taller tires help climb and clear obstacles

  • Package includes lift, new gears


Jeep is adding 35-inch tires from the factory to the two-door Wrangler for the first time. The move gives the Jeep a feature that many buyers were adding anyway and goes after the Ford Bronco’s Sasquatch package.

It’s called the Xtreme 35 Tire Package, and it is available on 2024 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and Willys two-door models. You need to get the 2.0L turbo-four to add the tall tires.

Jeep picked a BF Goodrick KO2 all-season tire in 315/70R17, which equates to 35 inches tall. The tires are mounted to 8-inch wide beadlock-capable wheels.

To make sure the tires fit, the package inlcudes a 1.5-inch lift with shocks tuned specifically for the model. The gears are replaced with a 4.56:1 ratio to add torque multiplication to turn the big heavy rubber. Jeep beefed up the rear swing gate, too, to make sure it can hold the spare.

Adding the taller tires means 34 inches of water fording and 12.6 inches of ground clearance. It also improves the approach, breakover, and departure angles.

The Xtreme 35 package adds $4,995 to the price of a Rubicon or Willys on top of the 2.0L engine’s price. Or you can get the new $79,905 Wrangler Rubicon X trim that includes the 2.0L and the big tires.

Order books open this month for Rubicon and later this quarter for Willys. Production starts in the spring.
