Or better yet based upon my desires to go bigger for more clearance.. Would I gain anything by throwing on adjustable LCA's instead? Would this help center the axle more and relieve the rubbing on the inner fender? If so I would go with:

Adjustable LCA's
Steering Stabilizer upgrade
IRO Track Bar (Double Sheer)

I'd say plan A. But I'm no expert. Bad goes to worse you if you load up with extra water and gas your suspension will have some space for movement

Sometimes I debate adding a little more lift. At ~3", I can see where LCAs are soon to be necessary.

I've looked at a lot of interior shelves and never thought much about them. Then I saw this.

Are you keeping your interior space for sleeping or do you hope to get into a rooftop tent?

I don't want to get bigger but yes it should be the best way to keep tires in check without cutting up the body.

Info filled out

IDEALLY a rooftop tent would be da bomb. But think with that shelf and a full air mattress life could be pretty cushy.

That may have to be what I do in mine! Past trips Ive went on Ive had to keep cargo light to have sleeping space inside. With a rooftop tent out of my budget Ive considered buying a tent cot to haul around but that idea there may be the best of both worlds. Ive got a few weekend long wheeling road trips I plan to take this year. Maybe I can try and put something together by then.

My plan A is to add a rooftop basket so when I park I can toss my contents up in it, tarp over them and then sleep inside with nothing extra but the spare tire. My wife and I did a test run last weekend together and were surprisingly comfortable.

Plan B will be something like the shelf above. I haven't taken any measurements yet but it would need to be at least as high as a cooler. I PMed the owner of the above vehicle to try and get some more pictures. I'm not sure how the deck is supported and want to know more about his design. I'll share whatever I glean from him.

Plan C is a rooftop tent although new they cost more than our XJs are worth and I'm not sure I can every justify the expense.
