Looking for pics, MJ with 5.5 lift on 31" tires.

I keep going back and forth on wether to lower or lift my MJ. I have the parts to do both but honestly a lifted MJ would be more practical for me. Since I have a good set of 31" tires on rims from my YJ I will be sticking with those for now. So post some pics of MJs with the SOA/31" combo and give me some motivation to finish mine.

I have found 2 Comanches in the project section so far with 5.5" of lift and 32" tires. In fact I used to run 32" TSLs on my old 6" lifted LWB. I don't think they look funny at all. I personally think a truck with a little bit of room in the wheel wells looks better then a truck that has the wheel wells stuffed with tire. Ideally I would go with a 33-35" tires but like I said I have the rims and tires. I am sure I will go bigger maybe next year if I come across a good deal.

First off I'd agree, They look pretty good.Second,I'm an old school mudder,Got my first truck in 1979,It was a brand new Jeep J-10 Golden Eagle.I soon added a 4" lift and 35"mudders,(biggest lift available,body lifts wasn't invented yet,38S were the tallest tires you could get) Since then I've had many 4x4s,81 Power ram 35s,A 78 Power Wagon with a 440 and 44s, 83 CJ7 with 401 police interceptor and 44s,83 F.S.Cherokee with 360 and 38s a 79 G.M.C. with 44S.and a few more milder 4x4,I guess what I'm getting at is it takes a lot more fender clearance than a lot of people think to run a large tire properly if your gonna wheel it.If it's just gonna be a hyway truck that's different. Good example is my 79 G.M.C. 16" Lift Bushwacker cut out fender flares,tons of fender clearance,First time out I ripped a front flare off.Another example  the 83 CJ7 looked great but the 44s came off and 17.50/35" Mickey Thompsons took their place.Guess what I'm saying is on a Comanche if your gonna wheel it.5.5" Lift and 31s or 32s is just about right.(In my opinion)
