I plan to use this CJ on the lines of an SUV, 4 days in city and 2 days out off-roading, OTR's etc. Though I do not have hard core off-roading in mind but do not want this Jeep to be deficient in any way.

Thanks,

Fazal sir,

Please go with Gypsy rims and BFG 235's. You can blindly go with specs what Arka said. I have the same setup on my 540, but steering system is still old type. Gypsy's negative off set rims will provide you that low stance and wide look. It will not look dominating though!

MRCBT he meant Manual recirculating ball type steering box which he has on his vehicle and is on NGCS vehicles. The steering box here sits just behind the front bumper on RH chassis side member. The advantages are less play, more direct steering and lighter steering.

Basically you dont need that steering on a CJ3B as it is a small vehicle
The recirculating ball type, you mean the one in pic,. fitted on my Last MM550. The universal joint type by RANE?

I think this is the one!! Armada type with idler arm. NGCS type remove linkages from idler arm setup, hence lesser play and more direct steering.
NGCS type set up mentioned in this thread-

Vinod,
I have one brand new set with me with tie rods.
It may not be required for 3B, but since I have it and will only help in making the steering more smoother, I can also go for a bit more wider tyres with this mechanism, will it help is the question to you, Arka and others.
If I am not installing a PS, will it be better than the existing XLO type?

My bad i was mentioning tweaks to improve the break over angles. GC yes since the axle will be low will remain low, remaining (suspended) parts can be saved though. But i dont think 16 NDMS to 15 Radials on gyspsy rims is that big a deal?

If you want 6" lift talk to one and only Mr Spidey Dont really remember whats the lift he is aiming at now lol

Regards,
Not only articulation, overall lift of the suspended parts right?

Allan,
Thanks, Yes they look very good and stock too. How to widen them???
And what size tyres are they intended for?
Will they be BF 235/70/r16 compatible?
Now you are getting me into a deeper hole.

Cut the rim and add a piece in between is what i know of this mod. Best is to get Allen to do it for you and ship you a set

IMHO, please stay away from such practice as the wheel rim will be a suspect for failure during- a) Impact loads b) Fatigue loads.

Fazalaliadil, I wasn't able to take any info about the BFGs today, I only snapped a photo from the Tigar tires I previosly mentioned. They fit the original rim perfectly, but they sit a bit low. Dimensions are 175/80-16. This is the most probable setup that I would go with. They perform great on road and have respectful performance off road. Without a doubt, you can't expect too much from a tire intended for a light commercial vehicle

JeepMkd,
It has good and deep lugs, do I feel it is kind of narrow or maybe after inflation it will widen up to the right size. What would one cost in INR and their availability here?
Thank you.

Fazal, i would go for wider lugs for better self cleaning properties!

And yeah, price and availability is an issue in India, I guess
