Another old setup - see ericsxj.com for current specs

Here's my 2nd lift. The first one was RE4.5" with a small coil spacer. Specs:

Year: 2000
Lift height: listed - RE 5.5" kit actual - estimated 6.5". Because I kept my old RE1462 leaf packs that were already broken in, I replaced the RE shackle witha TeraFlex shackle which is about an inch taller.
Tire size: 33x12.50 MT/R's (actual diameter = 32.8")
Wheels: 15x8 Tech 1's with 4.5" backspace
Fenders: trimmed and the stock flares moved up
Notes: No flex pics yet, but tires will clear fenders. Tires rub the LCAs a little at full turn. Wishing I had a slightly wider stance with this set up. I'm going to keep these wheels however and if I do a hub conversion, that should move the tires out just enough to make me happy.

2000 XJ "PROJECT RUBICON" 3-link front / 4-link rear / coilovers / running 37's on Dana 60s

Year: 1990
Lift: RE 4.5 with full Leafs
Tires: 33x12.50 TrXus M/T
Wheels: Pro Comp Extreme Alloy 15x8
Notes: Iv'e started trimming the fenders some. Nothing too much, just the front and back corners. It still rubs a little but it's fixing itself. No T-case drop, no vibes, and no bumpstops.
