I always park next to other Jeeps. Usually I come out of the store or wherever I am and there is a few more Jeeps parked there as well, so other people must do it.

If I can't find a Jeep to park next to, I park as far away from everyone else as possible to avoid door dings and stray carts. Also makes it easy to find the Jeep when I come back out looking for it.

i remember talking to people at the end of basketball games and stuff, they told me that they would park next to me since they could always find my jeep. that was back when it had a big tire and a shovel on the roof. i was pretty easy to pick out of a crowd...lol

oh, no it was stable. i did take it off when i went with my 6.5" lift, but thats also since it wouldnt fit in the garage. i also widened the track by 2.5"s with my cragars

Ya, the extra stablity from the 4in BS was one of the main reasons I bought my Cragars.

I dont understand the ppl with lifted vehicles who want there wheels tucked in their fenders, Ive been told that as you lift it you should also widen it to keep the handling characterisics as stock as possible.

exactly, ive got a friend and she has 3.5"s and 31s on stock wheels. and she swears im gonna roll everytime i do a donught in the parking lot. i can drive completly sideways in the snow in my neighborhood and feel as stable as when im in my mom's volvo convertable. i dont think people realze how the extra 1.25"s on each wheel will stabalize the rig.

Here's my stock (for now) XJ next to some co-workers WJ & YJ. I'm lifting my XJ soon and so the guy with the WJ is adding two more inches so he's still taller

I'll just add two more later

That year model of WJ looks great with a lift or even just rims.
