i parked next to my neighbours stock yj at my apartment building for about four months and then i pulled up one day to see his truck on a shiny new lift kit, new tires and new chrome rims. and he STILL wont come wheeling with me... tool.

and i ALWAYS park next to another jeep, even if i gotta walk like twice as far as id otherwise have to. my jeep is big, wwI camo paint, dented, scraped, and heavily armoured. i like to scare other jeep owners, its like 'careful, or it might turn into THIS! AH HAHAHAHAAAAAA!'

i love the respect my jeep gets, its only on 31s and yet people treat me like its alot bigger than it is... the smashed rocker panels and massive trail armour have a lot to do with it i suspect.


lo tho i wheel through the valley of the shadow of death, i will fear no obsticle, for my jeep is with me. thy armour and tires, they comfort me. you lead me to lay down rubber on big rocks, and drive you through deep waters.
you prepare a place for me at the end of tough trails, and you anoint my driveway with oil. surely your awesomeness and the smell of burning motor oil will follow me all of the days of my life, and i will dwell in the house of the jeep forever. amen.

yeah seems like once you get a lift, your jeep looks alot bigger than before..

when you think about it in your head, the amount of lift you put into your jeep looks alot bigger than you would imagine

random though, sorry about that

i didnt notice my 3.5" lift all that much, and i didnt notice the extra 3"s from my 6.5" kit. (except for the fact that it was harder to get into). but when i park next to my buddies stock XJ, i realize how much bigger it is, i also notice it when riding with my friends in their little cars and my bumper comes even with the middle of their windshield

yeah thats when i notice the lift and tires too, next to stock jeeps and from inside cars. definantly doesnt look big to me till i realize that my back bumper is like hood level to a stock xj... fun.

lo tho i wheel through the valley of the shadow of death, i will fear no obsticle, for my jeep is with me. thy armour and tires, they comfort me. you lead me to lay down rubber on big rocks, and drive you through deep waters.
you prepare a place for me at the end of tough trails, and you anoint my driveway with oil. surely your awesomeness and the smell of burning motor oil will follow me all of the days of my life, and i will dwell in the house of the jeep forever. amen.

What kind of armor do you have? Your phrase "heavily armored" has me very curious.
