Was going to try those but ended up building these for 1/3 of the cost of brackets, and they work with my existing Yakima trays. That saved me additional $250-300. Those mounts will certainly look better.
I think Kaeo has the higher Rubicon fenders. IMO, 3” lift on front of Rubicon with 35s will be too much fender gap. I have 37s on Mopar 2” plus 3/4 spacer (and winch), and it looks pretty proportional.

Good feedback and glad it’s working out for you! Just apples and oranges from Florida to Idaho or higher elevation - I have experience with both. If my JT were still in TX, I’d be on stock 4.10s with 37s. Being in Utah now, I regeared to 5.13s.

You should be generally fine. Depends on what you call a bypass. Example, Metal masher has some serious level 7-9 obstacles (Widow Maker is one) that only seriously built rigs or dedicated crawlers do and that you bypass. Even Fins and Things has a few lines that I wouldn’t take due to departure...
