JK's w/ 40+ Tires

As I'm sure with everyone else, I never get tired of looking at bad ass jeeps. It seems like most every one I see usually max's out around 37-38's. I'd like to see a few with 40+ Tires if anyone has any pics. Lately I've had a few ideas bouncing around in my head of a 4drJK on 44-47 as a play-toy/weekend ride. If anyone has any pics please post up.

I personally don't like exo cages on Wranglers, but I like the rest of it

More and more people are trying 40's. Here's mine:

I've still got 4.88's, they hold overdrive on the highway and aren't too bad. I don't notice a big performance difference from running 37's. 5.38's would be much better though.

I will be, I've been busy cutting bumpers and body away to get them to clear okay. I plan on adding another 2" of bump stop at the rear and I'll wait to find out what is needed at the front and then move my brackets for the air bumps.

More and more people are trying 40's. Here's mine:

Unless I can't see it from the shadow this JK's running 40's on non-LA's? Would be more functional, looks cool though.

X2 I can flex to the length of the shocks, which at 32" is longer than most shocks on long arm kits. I'm not convinced that long arms will offer any more flex, in fact without longer shocks they definitely can't, and I don't see getting a much longer shock without more lift. Obviously, there are some advantages to long arms, but to say that a JK without them is a show Jeep is simply incorrect.

This was with 37's, and unless I'm mistaken, it looks like it's flexing okay. Since then I've added about 5" more of droop.
