I'm going with 32" tires
sag, better options are out there for not as much money.

Ok the little guy was there today. Here is a pic of his ZJ with 3.5" of lift and 33x12.50's. They fit for normal pavement driving but he can't wheel it because the tires would be into the fenders. I think if he hit a big enough bump the rears would definitely contact the fender.
