I have been having a few people asking about my rig so I am going to start a build thread. I got my jeep in Feb of 2010 with about 140,000 miles. It has the 4.0L, np242, d30/35 and 3.73 gears.
The earliest pic I have of my jeep, stock suspension, 245s, 1.5" RC wheel spacers, and cladding painted black.
About a week into owning the jeep, I got a hole in one of my fuel lines up by the gas tank, so I decided to do a tank tuck while I had the tank out.
For about the next month after that, I started stocking up on lift parts. I think this cheepest way to get 6" of lift. I think I am right at $1000 in parts at this point in time.
RCX 4" lift
IRO upper adj control arms
IRO fixed lower rear control arms
IRO HD Dual SS
I put the lift on buy myself (took 10 hours) so I didnt really care to take and pics in the process of putting it on. It measures 6.5" actual lift I dont have a t/c drop and I dont have any vibes.
The only good pic I have with stock wheel and tires.
I got at set of half used Baja ATZs from a friend of mine for free. 35x13.50R20. I got a set of 20x8.5 gunner 5s from discount tire. So for under $700 total I have a good set of 35s mounted and balanced.
I was having a lot of bump steer so I got rid of my little RC adj track bar. I would not recommend it to anybody. I bought an IRO adj track bar form Bama_WJ for a good price and it solved my problems.
I cleaned my headlights with the 3M kit that goes in the drill. It did wonders for my lights.
I then tinted my turn signals and side markers. I also added some tow hooks and trimed my bumper
with stock tires and RC track bar I would get death wobble at 50mph when I hit a big bump. With the 35s and RC track bar, dw at 40mph and a big bump. With the IRO track bar no dw and just the slightest bump steer. Thanks
i think your front IRO lower CAs are the wrong way also i think you have bumpsteer because if you are sitting at 6.5 the tbar only goes to 6in of adjustment so you need to compensate for the .5in

I went and got a HiLift jack and mounted it on the roof rack crossbars. I used all stainless hardwear so I wouldnt have to ever worry about rust.
I took off my rear swaybar because all of my bushings are wore out and they were making all kinds of noise. Then I got board and decided to do a little flexing at my shop. The rear coil was fully extended and loose; I thought that was pretty cool with short arms.
The 35 stuffs pretty good in the rear with the bumper trimed
