Here was my CJ5 with SOA, 1" from SRS, and some Wagoneer leafs mixed in that brought it up another 1". I had 35x12.50's on it which measured out about 34" tall.

Good looking rig. A couple of questions...
Are those wagoneer leafs mixed in w/ your cj spring packs or wagoneer spring packs?
Do you know if that bolt on srs will interfere w/ a winch plate?

The Wagoneer leafs are mixed in with stock YJ springs (4 leaf front, 5 leaf rear).
The SRS system is not supposed to intefere w/a winch plate. There is two flat spacers on each side between the fram and side plates. The instructions say you take out one on each side for a winch plate, or bumper, or both with winch plate and bumper. I used a kit for a '76 later CJ with YJ springs.
