yeah true its all on how you want your rig built. i do like suspension travel but on my xj with 31s, i got hung up on rocks everywhere on the axle and 33s made a world of difference so thats why i stepped up to 33s on the zj. it performed way better than i expected so i think ill bump it up an inch if even. i am more for trail riding and rock crawling than pushing my rig to the limits..that will come after its my DD haha. i plan on doing an aussie in the 8.8 when i throw that in as well.
and since these posts will probably get deleted since theirs no pics, heres my rig which is around 4" with 33s and bumpstopped.
and flexed out
