Drawbacks of being too high...

Yes, there are a lot of them.

Like scraping the roofs of parking buildings, it's pretty close...

I am measuring 24" from center of wheel to fender flare in the back and like 23.25 in the front.

In the back I just added an OME AAL to my existing 3.5" OME pack, plus I have 1" jks shackles and ironman shackle relocators (probably 1.5"), so I am like 7" in the back on 32's... I have stock rims plus like an 1" or 1.25" spacers. Also, sometimes I throw the tire on the roof.

Do you think this Jeep is likely to roll over? I am hoping the rear settles some. I am leaving it as is...

I too am at 7", on 33" wheels...
I can't enter most parking structures due to my (stock) spare tire being on my roof (nestled between the stock rack rails).
As for rolling over, I TRY not to get into situations where I'd need to swerve suddenly, and I've never really "tested" the stability, so all I can say is drive slowly

That's a good looking XJ but the sign in the background is cracking me up.
The answer to your question depends on what you do with it. It doesn't look ready to tip over in your picture there.

Mine is about that high. Never had any problems on the street.
Have never taken it off road tho. (Yes I know, I'm working on fixing some things so I can take it wheeling.)
One of them is going to be to lower the think a bit. I think its to high. But it drives fine on the street.
