tallest tire

I have a CJ-7 and want to lift it with 2" superlift springs and do a SOA conversion..
The tallest tire that will fit and still give me some travel would be a 35, but will that be too top heavy?

that depends on how/ where you drive it.

You shouldn't have any real problems there. Bill Cue is running 35s on his SOA'd CJ7 and plans to go to the 37s I'm pretty sure. If you'd like to talk to him, his website is: http://www.cuebilt.com/

I asked everywhere and everyone about SOA's on my YJ. It is a daily driver and all those who are in the know recommended not doing an SOA on a daily driver. Can you say axle hop.
I've never heard of tires making you top heavy unless your mounting them on your hood.
I don't know what axles your running but the bigger the tire the more stress on the axles.

I drive my SOA YJ 50 miles roundtrip everyday. YJs were meant to be SOA! Axle wrap can be an issue, but that's usually only off road and on steps or when the Jeep is pretty near verticle. With 33s, I had some wheel hop which I'm sure was mostly axle wrap but not enough to even bother fixing. Picking a slightly different line would always get me thru. With 35s I've had to add traction bars and I have no axle wrap, but I still have some wheel hop. Wheel hop is a strange beast. I plan to add shocks, but as we all know, that's treating the symptom, not the cause.
