Rubicon Express Super Flex 3.5 "installed" pics

I thought I would make a new thread with a new title so it'd be easier for people wanting to see pics of this lift setup for future searches by the title as these pics are a continuation from my other "build up" thread seen here: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/tomorrow-big-day-re-sf-install-334655/

Also this thread is to thank Jason and Jen at www.Jeepinoutfitters.com for all their help...good people to deal with.

Anyways...on to the completed pictures...








Some trimming needed on both sides for when the tires are turned fully...



And yes, the Jeep has vibes at around 25mph which goes up to 35mph. I have the SYE and CV driveshaft waiting to be installed but 3 days of this install is enough. Next weekend I will attack the SYE/CV install if the weather is on our side. So for now I drove it to the Lady's house (all city driving) but I won't be driving it to work as that is all highway.

I think thats how the shocks are supposed to go....




Looks reall good!
I'm suprised your rear end isnt sitting higher...usually the full packs give a little bit of a rake for a while

Looks good! I would have gone with some black wheels, but thats just me.

How do you like the MTZs? I am planning on getting those or the trxus mts next. I can't make up my mind.

Change the tires to Geolander MT+'s and you have the exact same setup as me

As far as the tires go...they are pretty quiet like people have said though I only put on about 10 miles last night. The only two MT tires I have to compare them with are the Goodyear MTR's on my friends Rubicon and the BFG MT's on a co-workers lifted Dodge Ram.

looks good. I understand you not wanting to tackle the sye right now. When I finished my lift I didn't want to turn a wrench for a long time.
