Pic Request - 3.5" lift on 31 x 10.5

I'm looking for some trail shots of 3.5" lift with 31 x 10.5 mud terrains. Pls don't post any other lift/tire size combination. I'm looking for this combo to see if I can get away running 31s for a few more months with my new 3.5" lift.

TIA!

Like you are proposing, I ran my old 31s for a few months before I got my "real" tires...

3.5" BDS with 5/8" shackles...pretty close to what you are asking about. If you don't have them already, you'll need the boom shackles or your stock ones will hit the frame in the rear when you compress the spring.

3.5" 31's work for me. My shackles only hit when I'm wheelin loaded with camping gear or we are 3 up. (Usually when I'm in the back seat.... hmmm...)

@ real tires. I'm on 1/2" boom shackles now with 1.5" lift. So the plan is to reuse those boom shackles with the new 3.5" lift for a total of 4"

Doesn't look bad at all, I like it. I can definitely wheel like that till I get my 8.8 axle, 4.10s and 33s. Thanks for the pics guys..

another thing,
I have a set of c&c fab front tube fenders and smitty rear tube fenders waiting to be installed as well. Will that in your guys' opinion look dumb with 31s? I was planning on holding off on the fender install till I get everything above done..

Nice looking Jeep! How do you like your rear bumper? Any issues with it?

hijack alert...
mostly like it. Rattles and starting to sag at hinge but I think I can correct those without too much trouble. I just haven't taken the time. And thanks!
