Can I run 37\'s with . . . ?

I am looking into the future weighing my options and what I want to do next on my Jeep. I pretty sure I wanna replace the front axel and lock it. If I do that I want to lift it again cause I am going SOA. I have 2.5 inch BDS springs that I want to SOA. I am trying to keep the jeep looking good and I really don't like the looks of the TJ flares on the front of a CJ so I was thinking of getting the Bushwacker Cut out flares for the CJ. I already have a 1 inch body lift. Would this give me enough clearance to run 37 MT/R's or something simular?

SOA + 2.5 + 1 and bushwacker flares? I know you can clear the tires but I havent had any experience witht the flares so it could possibly rub when flexed. I know if you had the same lift and TJ flares you would be set but im just not sure about the other flares.

i think you'll have plenty of room. i've got ~1.5" of shackle lift and some cutting on my cj currently and running 35's. its a tight fit, but works. a buddy has a cj soa w/ yj springs and runs 35's no prob. soa+2.5+1"b is a total of like 8 inches.

I think you'll be fine (lift wise) on the setup you mentioned.
Onetonjeeper has about the same (1" body, 2.5 springs,SOA) running 38" boggers. (trimmed rear fender wells and flatfendered) No problem even at max flex.
