looking for pics of cj7 soa rear strectched on 35s

ive got a cj7 im thinking of stretching the rear 4-6 inches going soa and running 35s. just looking for some pics of others that may have done it. im worried that it may look a little silly. Some people may saw why 35s. Well bc i think its as tall as I can go and it still fit in the garage.

yeah thinking about that too, but was liking the idea of strecthing the whell base a little and getting the articulation of the soa.

i used the stock spring hanger in the front. Cut out the stock rear x-member and welded in box steel. Then welded rough stuff way back hangers to that. it was pretty simple

not sure as my stock springs were pretty shot. I've only done the rear but plan on doing waggy springs sua in the front, and i'm thinking that should put it level. I'd say about 2-3" of lift from the swap, but i'm using a xj bastard pack.

I did Ruff Stuff's way back hangers and welded them onto 1/4" plate.

I did this for 2 reasons: I don't have a welder at my house and less work when 4-link goes in.

I have 325's on, which measure a true 35".

Up front is RE's 1.5 SOA.

I have not wheeled this set-up up yet, but from all the research I did it will work fine with a "slip and twist" or similar wrap bar on.
