35's for street use, 33's for offroad. I only have 31's right now w/ 4" lift on my '79. Going to add another two inches and clear 35's for moderate offroading.

Or do you want pics of a SOA w/ 4" lift springs? That would be eight to nine inches of lift. 38's are a little much for a CJ5 on the street.

You go with another 1" of shackle, and you might get 35" off road

do you like rolling? do a SOA on a CJ5 with 4" lift springs and you will get to do it a lot.

rusty, I think Muddy was asking for either/or, not both @ the same time.

But I think SOA will net well over 4", someone correct me if I'm wrong.

SOA will usually be about 5.5". It can vary a little with height of spring perches and thickness of spring packs.

4" Springs....and then I did the SOA. The SOA got me 6"(barely). It is really easy to do. Just make sure you put your axels back in the right way the first time

(those pics are old, since then i bedlinered the tub, removed the gay saddle bags, put in new seats(4wd brand low backs), painted the rollbar, added a gas can, seat belts, fire extinguisher, re-wired most of the lights, wired the horn and windhield washers, put in a manual choke, replaced the alternator, battery, plugs wires, air cleaner assembly, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc)

Ya some mudding, in florida....A little bit of trails up in New Hampshire....Nothing extreme. I've always wanted to build a jeep and stuff some monster tires under it. I'll post pics next time I remember to bring a camera to where the jeep is.The body isn't on it...I'm finishing up a full rebuild...
