2.5 inch lift with 31s

Does this look weird? I kind of like the 'stuffed' look with tires but I'm only getting 31s because I need tires next week, but plan on getting a suspension lift later on. I want to be able to flex though. I'm needy haha anybody have 2.5 lift with 31s? Pics?

I have their lift and I don't have any real complaints with it but I also have only had it for a little over a year. And I would recommend a front trac bar relocation..

I have the rc 2.5 lift and I am not a fan of the shocks. It won't have a stuffed look with 31's which is what I have now. There is plenty of clearance to run 32's. The PO put my lift on and if I had a choice I would not buy it. My last TJ I just put a skyjacker 2 inch spacer lift with 32's. Had a much better ride on and off road than what I have now. With the RC 2.5 you may have do a tcase drop or may not. Mine has it and I am thinking about removing it and seeing if I get any vibrations. The tcase drop negates some of the clearance gained by the lift. I also had to relocate the track bar, the PO didn't do that.

2.5 RC w/ 31x10.5 BFG. Absolutely no complaints after 8 months . The AR-23's has a backspacing of 3.75. Hind sight....tires could be bigger. I'm now looking to go 32x12.5.

I would do 33's but don't wont to get into changing gearing.

I was running 31's for about 2 years with NO lift at all. At full flex with the sway bar discoed it woould just touch the front fenders. Other than that I had absolutely no problems at all without the lift. With the 2.5" lift you might even be able to put on 33's

I've exceeded my pic limit but I run a 2.5 and 31s...look great. Now that I'm running MCE flatties and trimmed rears I could easily stuff 35s in there, but I'd have to re-gear.
