Finally got her lifted

I've had my jeep since last summer and I finally got it lifted this weekend.
Put on a 6.5" Rough Country lift and some 33" BFGoodrich tires.

Here are a couple of Before pictures:

I didn't install it myself, don't have the know-how or the tools for it so I had a couple buddies of mine install it for me. They didn't have any problems installing it.

And I haven't had any problems with it while driving. I have yet to test it out offroad, I plan on breaking it in this weekend though.

I just cary some oxygen tanks with me as a temporary fix. Is it even possible to seal a jeep tight enough to pressurize it?

No way!!! Leave that grille alone! I love the monochrome look on those beasts. Either way though, it looks great. Keep up the good work.
