XJ's with big tires on low lifts.

I saw this wrangler on Jeepin and it got me thinking about what an XJ would look like with big tires and low lift.

I even photoshopped my Cherokee to have roughly 37's on my 3" lift. (I'm at work now though, so I'll have to post it when I get home late tonight.)

That makes zero sense. Let's see, if I was lame and only into muddin, I would want my **** HIGH. If I'm into actual skilled wheelin, which I am, I would want as much tire as I can stuff into under 4" of lift or so. I know you XJ boys don't have it as easy because you don't have frames, but come on, branch out a bit. That JK could rock just about anything. Don't emphasize lift....
