    Welcome! This forum has several active CJ owners that can guide you in your quest. Perhaps stating what your currently running and some pics would help them make recommendations.

    You could probably run 33s if you don't get too twisty on the trails with it. You'll need the gearing to go with it. I've seen 35s in a low COG set up with only 4" of lift a couple of times, but not without plenty of trimming the tub and fenders.
