Low rider YJs

Looking for some pictures of low (stock to 2" of lift) running 33"+ tires. Just trying to get some ideas and see what its going to take for my build up. Planning on running 34" tires on stock suspension.

looks like you have load of room from that first pic. Do you have any from the side (not flexed out) just to get an idea of how much room is there.

I watched that entire build up, an amazing rig (but way beyond my skill level for even attempting anything close to it)

and for all those saying 34s are impossible (on a mild build with no lift)

this is from that thread, no fenders, stock everything and 37s

Sure do, here's a link to the suspension build. Pics before and after and with 31's and 33's. The before is with a badly sagged 2" Rancho lift and lift shackles on the front to make up for the crap springs. The after is 5 1/2" - 6" total on a SOA/SUA combo lift.
