looking 4 pics of XJ's with 35's and 7.5"+ of lift in off camber situations or rolled

I am still undergoing the difficult task of deciding what I want my lift/tire setup to be. I am looking at running 35's (most likely likely with a stock D30 up front and 29 spliine 8.25 in the rear), but the problem is I am looking for more lift than is necessary. I am wondering if anyone else has the RE 5.5" kit with spacers, or any other form of 7.5"-10" of lift on stock width axles and 35's that has pics of their XJ's in really off-camber wheeling situations or rolled so I can get an idea of exactly what it can handle and how much it itakes to roll.

Whats the need for the extra lift on top of the RE 5.5". I have about 5" or so on my rig and I have 35's and flex pretty good. That will change when I get adj. arms tho, becuase of the new bushings. But the extra lift isnt really needed. Just bump stop it and it will work almost as good and I bet it will feel more stable. Also you wont have to worry about the off camber situations.

Keep it nice guys. It is his Jeep and he can build it how he wants. At least he is asking questions to try and figure it out BEFORE he jumps in and makes decisions that he may, or may not, be happy with.

I have rolled mine twice with that type of setup, both due to bad driving one by me and the other by a freind. I would have rolled at 5.5 or 10" of lift in both of these situations. You can see the pictures just click the link at the bottom.
