I love that setup man. Thats what I want now, but how much do those tires rub being 33's on stock arms?

I did a little photoshop to make it my jeep.

$200? Thats awesome. I've decided to go 33x10.50 KM2's when i lift 3.5". Tire rack has them for $164 a tire, not bad! Maybe even cheaper once I can afford to do this all . Yours looks awesome though!

Too bad those tires are on back order. But 33's on that small of a lift is bad-azz. Thats the Tuff Country lift.

yeah i got a steal on all my stuff too. i put my bumper back on today and it only rubs when turning really sharp but not even bad ill have to trim maybe a 1/2 inch max. i also got a helluva good deal on my rims tires. i bought a bronco about 9 months ago for 400 bucks with a 4 inch lift and those tires and ive parted it all out and made all my money back and then some and i kept the tires. so basically they were free. and the rims i picked up for 20 bucks from my friend. so i took them to my buddys shop and swapped everything. TOTAL. as of right now between lift/tires/rims i have 320 invested.

280 front 3.5 springs and all 4 shocks from IRO
20 front v8 springs to go in the rear
20 rims
Free tires.

tell me thats not a steal.

and im going to go get fixed rustys rear lower arms from the junkyard for 20 bucks some time this week. not sure when ill get around to doing them though. i hit a speed bump doing 40 today and the rear didnt even rub on the tires from that. im also thinking of doing a spacer in the rear to make it a little more equal probably just a 3/4 inch though. we will see. and i know many of you are gonna say "what about your front track bar. theres away around it but it only works for 3.5 and less lift. you just take out the track bar bolt on the axle and theres about 2 inches extra on that bracket and you just drill a hole there and move the track bar. it works great. rear trackbar isnt really necessary at this height but i may order the RE drop bracket. i just wanted to see what i could do with a tight budget. tell me what you think about those awesome deals.

just another note. since his and mine have 33s they dont look nearly as big as they are. mine is a little taller than me if you measure to the roof rack or about 2 inches shorter than me to teh roofline. and im 6'3''. go outside and measure how tall your stock zj is.

The 200 dollars I paid for the lift also came with the 33's and the black craigers :-)

So you have a 3.5" with 3/4" spacers? hows that work out for you? i want to do the same thing but was worried about control arm length?

oh and coolio 365. did that come with shocks?! i got rc shocks and i also got v8 rear springs because i have a i6 and that only gives you about 3 inches. the v8 is 3.5. so i got all 4 springs, shocks, and wheels and tires for 320. if you got all that you got a hell of a deal. was yours used? did you get track bars? control arms? anything?
