That would make recovery easy if you every go out by yourself...probably still have some money left. That is what I would do
Valid points guys, although I think the 34" tires are just about a perfect fit with the stock front springs and NT Waggy front axle. The photo below shows the fit a little better. The one I posted earlier in the thread shows the suspension droop.

I still may consider selling it (I had 3 people ready to buy the complete vehicle when I posted it for sale a couple months ago). My wife gave me the blessing to keep it, though, after I ran through a pros/cons list of keeping vs. selling. It's a little hard to let go of a Jeep that is so rare & rust-free. It's actually cleaner than my trail rig '10a (and that's 99% rust-free).

BTW, a nice custom front bumper is already in the plan for my offroad '10a, as is a cage (longer-term, perhaps). I'll probably look at a winch down the road, but it'll be a while.
