Default lif/ tire size thouhts

ok so my 82 CJ7 currently has extended shackles and 33's on it. the shackles are going away because i don't like the look, i hear they're not the safest/greatest thing to have, etc. i bought stock size shackles and new bushings. my idea is that i want to run 35-37" tires. i was thinking about getting the hi fender armor from gen right or from t&t customs and a 1-2" body lift, daystar has a 1" kit that replaces everything for the mounts for under $100. was also thinking about doing a SOA kit but i fear if i do all 3 of these things im going to be HUGE! whats everyones thoughts? i kinda wanna keep a LCG.

35" is possible might be pushing it with 37"s though. You should probably upgrade your axles to run 35".

a question i have with these vs gen right is that the rear corners from gen right have a hi line flare which will allow me to cut up to the fender well. i want to run flares because of the look and possible travel. with these flares can i still cut up that high? possibly something i need to call them on.
