Anybody got pics of 17" wheels & 35-36" tires on their CJ?

The guy that I buy all my parts from is trying to convince me to get 17" wheels with the 35-36" tires I want. I want 15's and really don't care for 17's on a CJ, but the main reason for that is I've never seen 17's on a CJ. Anybody got some pics of their CJ with 17's and 35-36" tires?

I think 17's would be a little bit overkill. I have stock 15's with 31.5" tires on my CJ5 and it goes pretty much wherever I want to go.

I've also considered going with 17" wheels. Would provide space for larger brakes, and I think there is a greater selection of tires to choose from. As with most modifications, there's a down-side in that when aired down, a 17" tire would probably not flex/grip as much as a 15" tire with a larger sidewall.
