Thanks for the pics. I can see now where I need to cut. On my way back for getting the tires I started thinking I was going to need new flares. Guess Ill run them till I get $ for wider flares. I just came from mass from picking up the wheels and tires too. Jeep looks killer by the way!

I did a test fit on the front today at work. Looks like Ill be highlining the front. I was thinking of just raising up the rear flares once I go to TJ flares and just do a lot of cutting. But I still think I need more room. So Ill most likely get a 2.5" lift. Ive run back 2.5" RE springs and loved em so might go that route.

Sweet Im on there as well with the same name. Id rather not go with a body lift. But if I do i would only go with a 1". The other problem is the tires stick out about 5.5" from my stock flares. So Ill have to get extended flares or make my own.

I like the BL for the extra room, Makes working under and around the frame MUCH easier, and easier to get the mud and crap out too..

Def on the flares as the "Live free or die" State apparently means Live free or die as long as your tires don't extend more than 1/4 inch past your flares.... Brutal here on the seacoast...

Maybe I will go with at least a 1" body lift. The previous owner put in a poly body mounts before I got the jeep so it should all come apart very easy. I used to drive around with no flares on one of my jeeps and I never got hassled but I just don't want to take the chance on getting a ticket.
