Tower,
Not sure I ever have mentioned it...but that is a great looking Scrambler! Love the color and the Scrambler decal on the hood...reminiscent of the old renegade emblems

I've been struggling with this choice for the last year. I have a local off-road club that has blown up (from nothing to over 300 active members). The thing I love about it; is that it has gotten so big, that almost every Saturday and Sunday there is a group of 4-10 rigs going to our park 1 hour a way. Means that you don't need to plan ahead to go wheeling; just have 6-8 hours free on a Saturday..... As you might guess; 70% of the club is running JK's and prolly 70% of that group is on 35s (easy to do on a JK). I had 265/75s/16 (measured 31.7"). Technique and hardware; I could hang with the kids all day; tire size definitely was a problem at times. 35's on a CJ pretty much requires spring over from what I've seen (or like 5.5" springs). I came across an oddball size (and a great deal) on a compromise that I hope removes the size limitation without causing too much rubbing / fitment.

they are 295/70/17 and measure 33.5 (actual measurement) MAXXIS RAZR. Pretty much a 34. Amazon was running them for $225 each - free shipping...

These have come with their own fitment issues.......but hopefully not as much.....

What is your suspension setup? And what do you think you'll have to do to wheel those 34s?

Also, beautiful Jeep! Where did you get the Scrambler hood decals?

I have 3.5” custom ALCAN springs with 1” body lift. The ALCAN really haven’t settled much..... I have a shackle reversal.....

The methods are increadibly heavy duty. The CJ wheel studs aren’t long enough for them. The new tires hit the leaf at full lock (in front). I’m scared of wheel spacers on 35 year old studs.....so I’m putting in new studs and 1.5 or 2 in spacers.... I may need a slight shackle lift.....I think ALCAN would rearch taller if I need; haven’t priced that yet.....

Decals are pixel hut. Quality was amazing. Pretty cheap too.

This is "tailgate tree" where all the TJ's and CJ7s loose a taillight!
