Lightbulb Tire/Lift Combo: *Photos Wanted*

I wanted to start a thread that would help people figure out what Tire/Lift Combo would work best for them. It will also help people decide what they want their Jeep to look like.

It is basic what I am looking for:

Tire Size and Make
Rim Size and Make
How Much Lift
What Type of Lift
If you had to trim your Wheel Openings
A photo from the side so people can see what it looks like.

Along with any other info you feel would help people decide what Tire/Lift combo they want to run, such as what you do mostly with you Jeep

I wish I could go first but I am still trying to decide what size tires to run, and how much lift to go with.

I would like to put something together like this: http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showthread.php?t=44404 but with photos.

Thanks

MAHA

34x10.50 Swamper LTBs, 15x7 Waggy wheels, 6 inch Hell Creek lift (gee, this is looking a lot like my sig... lol)

No trimming so far... I pulled it up on some big rocks in my yard and on a steep slope and stuffed the wheels all I could and did not hit anything... even the back ones.

Not a real good pic but here's a 3" body lift on a Wag w/31" BFG's before I re-located the bumpers. Stock rims and just slight off-roading...Haven't been brave enough to get any real flex yet!! This is a cheap way to go but has it's own set of headaches when doing the install. My next skyward move is a 2" spring lift from BJ's for 5" of lift and I won't have to change brake lines or go with a drop pitman arm!

This was when I had,
6" superlift front springs
4" superlift rears with 2 added leafs and a shackle flip.
This allows the rear to sit up 1.5" higher than the front for towing and gear without sagging.
3" Body lift w/springs on the bolts for flex
1" longer front shackle from the rear of a 88 chevy truck.
All this allows me to use 35" on a 15x10 3.75 offset rim with no fender contact at full stuff.
When I cut the fender to put the 39" on it I plan to do so without any additional lift.
