Any guess on this tire size and lift combo?

See link below. This rig looks so amazing. This is basically perfection in my eyes. I was able to make out that the tires are Mickey Thompson, these are the Baja atz tires. Looking at the pictures I could swear these are some big monster tires, but the biggest ones in this line are 37", and that's on a 17" wheel. Curious your guesses here!

Looks good but lotsa typical car show BS.

150 Pounds of speakers in the back. Leaves a lot of room for the "overlanding" equipment.

Hacked fenders with no flares. I'm sure they don't flex at all.

Patina? Car show talk for the decision not to put any money into a paint job. Like "Rat Rod".

Sorry, I usually keep my negative views to myself on how guys do things but this isn't your work.

Being it's @ SEMA likely 100% custom lift/suspension and not cheap.
No way it's off the shelf bolt-in kit...I see coil springs up front.

the details site link was cool

great web page design

especially how another photo of the rig in a dim garage appears in background when you scroll down.

and it is a bad rig.

Thanks for your answer, what great insight you have...

Anyhow, I'm probably the kind of Jeep guy you hate. I want big tires a lift kit hacked fenders and definitely can't afford a great paint job. Half of this is about the looks let's not fool ourselves. I could have a very capable rig for half the cost if I chose something newer and more conventional.
