lift with stock tire pics

Hey
just wondering if anyone has any pics of their lifted zjs with stock tires on them. specifically around the 4inch lift. i checked the lifted ZJ thread and its hard to tell the lift height and what tires. i just bought the RC 4inch LA kit and im wondering what it will look like if i install the lift and leave my stock tires on it.

It will look kinda silly...for me the worst part however, was how tippy it felt with the shift in center of gravity. This pic is with 5" of lift and 235/75/15 tires...

God, I thought my jeep looked bad back at 4.5" and 31's, but this takes the cake.. 5" on 235's. Put 33's on it!

This better?



Not to worry, I was only like that for about 2 weeks while I looked for a deal on tires. Even my wife thought it looked funny. She comes out after we finish the install and goes 'god, you gotta buy bigger tires for that!' My buddy and I look at each other and I go SWEET!

Yeah, that's more like it.

Thats the iro 5.5 critical path, iirc?

And ha, you better do what she tells you to do, right? If she wants you to get bigger tires, that's just a sacrifice your gonna have to make, huh?

Haha. Yeah I ran 30.5s (245/70r16) and 4.5 for a few months after I got the lift. People sure did look... But I don't think it was because it was a good thing. Lol. After I got 33s, nobody even notices anymore. Just another lifted jeep.
