Once in awhile the web crawling mall krawlers come out of the wood work and spout their knowledge or lack there off.
The biggest thing to remember is that Jeeps are a very personal thing and each and every Jeep owner has a differing view of how to built theirs.
Be it due to lack of experience or lack of funds sometimes corners are cut, that in the long run take more money to correct.
Once you move past 35" tires it isn't an easy thing to make a nice riding reliable and daily driveable Jeep that can also tackle any terrain you throw at it. It can be done, but takes a lot of work and some funds. I can Hammer at the Hammers and drive my put put to work the next day if I chose to do so. Done it more than once since I love put putting around with the big beast

Depends on skills and ingenuity and how much uptravel you want out of your axles.
I have about 4.5" lift on this thing and by the look of things for my fourties I can retain my 6" uptravel in front and 5" uptravel in the rear. You are best of to highline the front, also depends on how wide you go with the axles and backspacing of the tires. Axle to narrow and with full flex and steering locked you end up in the grille.
