Re 4.5 cj pic request

Looking for some pics of cjs with the 4.5 re lift kit and wondering what tires go best with it. Seems to be a toss up between 33's and35's

35's on 4" lift springs

I only had to trim due to contact at severe articulation.

I have the RE 4.5" lift with 1" BL. Your problem with 35s will be the back of the tub, not height. I cut mine like John did and installed Rugged Ridge flares.

There's another thread showing CJs with 35s, so you can see them there.

Vibration? Bump steer? Wandering? Read the article (sticky) on Steering, suspension, and driveline.

Aero that rig is really super clean. It seems like everyone is doing the one inch body lift and 35's..except kponytail. How's the 33's feel on your 5 kponytail?

Did you have to cut for 36s? Or was the 1in BL enough?
