Good. I'm thinking about doing roughly the same as your build. I'm debating on no lift+ 30" tires or 2" BB+31" tires.

Mine's a DD too and is getting roughly 20mpg.

I like those tires, how do they ride on the street? My jeeps my daily driver too. I have some 30 BF's but they aren't as knobby as yours.

They ride great for a mud tire, not noisy and still have plenty of grip on the road. They wear great and still ride comfortably.

Why? I think the BB is a good option if you're not looking to upgrade everything. Plus, with 30x9.5 tires, you're not going to want a 3.5'' lift.

This Jeep would look amazing with a little lift IMO.

yes, it'll look good, but shortly after the lift, you are going to look at it and say, damn, wish I had gone a little bigger. It's been said by many people who have been there and done that.

Yea, I'm starting to look more into a 3.5. Who makes the best for your buck? I was looking at RC

Re-doing my CB antenna mount. Just ordered a Firestik MK-204R mount and a 18' Coaxial Cable. Anybody know of a good CB radio for a good price?
