32-34" Tires and Coilovers/Air Shocks?

Been pondering on this idea for some time on my two door Cherokee or Wrangler. Ive got 32's on my Cherokee and 34's on my Wrangler. Just for ride quality purposes, has anyone done this? (keeping factory axles, steering, etc.)

Im not looking to do another ton or 3/4 build. I want to keep a small narrow rig that will drive up and down the road but yet have the ride quality of the coilovers off road.

Shocks and coil springs are another idea, some say the right shock with the right coil spring can reach this type of ride quality. Ive tried several different setups over the years, and while some coil spring and shock setups ride well, IMO I still haven't owned or riden in a rig that rides like true coilovers or air shocks ride.

As far as I know there still isn't a bolt on kit for this, specially for the XJ's. Anyone know of a similar build like this or if anyone is making some sort of bolt one style kit for this yet?

bolt on style coilovers huh. I think you might be in the wrong section

if you're looking at coilovers before at least a steering upgrade I'd have to say your priorities are a little fucked off. I see CO's on wrangler builds all the time though. no reason you can't drop your jeep off at a fab shop and have them set it up for you. that's the only way it's gonna get done unless you pick up a grinder, tape measure, and welder. long arms and bilsteins really should be more than enough for a guy on 32's but hey it's your money

Your bigger problem is link geometry not coil/shock vs coilover.
