going to find some front/rear bumpers to put on it, black rims, black flares/trim/windows
I want to put a roof rack on it, with a light bar, and also lights on the front bumper
going to put D-rings on the front bumper for recovery, and just use the rear bumper for recovery off that

whats the LCOG wide stance?

LCOG is low center of gravity. The wide stance you're going for, especially before you start lifting it, will have a low center of gravity.

As far as steering stops I disagree. My rear axle with a locker did far more than adding two washers to my steering stops did. That locker makes turns become major ordeals at times. Scrub radius mofos!
Wait til you try to turn 37s when your welded front and rear in 4 lo lol aint easy

Yea thats what I do unless im going through something I really need to be locked. Then I just lock the other hub. Sucks when the one you locked starts spinning though and you have to get out. Haha

Ohhh gotcha
Yeah it'd be lcog before I lift it
But other then then, those are the plans
The roof rack and rear bumper will be one of the last mods though

Lcog in my opinion is the best route. More stable in every scenario and you can still have alot of clearnce at a lcog depending on skid plates and tires and whatnot.

Agree. Even an XJ with a 4.5" lift and 33s is barely higher than a stock jk Wrangler, although narrower.

Yeah like I said, ill go for the LCOG look, new rims, wheels, tint the windows, get front recovery system (a bumper with drings) then a roof rack and then lift 2-3"

That's the plan
