Really nice Jeep! Yeah I did some research and I think I'll be happy with it. Are those 33's? They fit with trimming? I didn't want too much lift but still would like 33's

I too have the RE 3.5" lift and love it. Got 33s also. You can see I had to trim a bit.

Do I have to to do more than just cut and fold front and rear?

Yeah its awesome. Eventually I might go up a smidge to fit BDS long arms, but I'll go up an inch, tops.
