a shot of em on level ground would be better, but regardless they both look about the same to me.

Both are XJ's therefore they are the same size.

Next silly question.

Lighter colors do look bigger than darker ones. I feel like they're the same size. Your tires are more aggressive. Why don't you guys just get a measuring tape and get some specs and know for sure who's is bigger and by exactly how much? lol

What he's saying is that he can do the tape measure thing, but his friend is not nearby and he can't trust him to tell the true tale of the tape. I dunno why they don't just say what size lift and tires they each have & draw the conclusion from that. The pics look the same to me ... 3" lift with bigger tires wins. Same specs? Then lighter rig wins. I dunno ... when I get insecure about my XJ size I line it up next to a stocker, LOL. Or an H3. What I lack in size I more than make up for in looks. IMO.
