I realize it's far to late to vote. My candidate was never a contender anyhow. I'm one of those who consider lifts of any sort to be a sometimes-necessary evil. My plans for my own Cherokee involve 38-42 inch tires and (hopefully) no lift. Jeep's show truck, "Lower Forty", was my inspiration for the idea.

I appreciate that many think cutting the fenders ruins the lines of the truck. But I think it's only ugly when it is done poorly. It takes just a little more work and planning to "stretch" a wheelwell without altering the look of the truck. Drag racers have been doing it with their cars for decades; http://forums.h-body.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=25910 And the square lines of the WT flares should make it a whole lot easier.

Even if you cut all the way up to the hood, you are going to need lift to be able to have any room to flex. M715's fit 37's stock, but its a tight fit. And there have been people that do M715 style fenders in back, and it can look good if done well. But you will still need some lift to have any articulation.

On the Lower Fourty Concept, they raised the fenders several inches. And it should be noted you can fit 35's on a JK with no lift (granted its tight). On a wagoneer, you can fit 31's, and its very tight.

I had to put down that I would go with the SOA and a 2" BL. Enough hiegth to do what you want and not so much to be ungainly. Plus, you retain that stock spring rate and that is pretty sweet. Same route I am going with mine.
