Alright so I got a call from the shop, telling me to come look at the tires. some major fender rub. took off the plastic and did some work and called it good till I got home. Then we got to work trimming. Did quite a bit of trimming. But its worth the extra inch of width I think.



Cell phone pic.

But Will, that may work, but Im hoping for something a bit more permanent. Im not sure haha.

Try adding kevins .75 spacer to help clear the tires. Looks great tho, Lets see more pics outside. Iv been thinking about switching to 15's to get some 32x11.50's.

How does it it ride? Im thinking about getting this lift kit but i want to know as much as possible. So any comments would be great about ride quality, difficulty of install etc.

I may do that, the main spot its rubbing is at full flex, the windshield washer fluid and such. Prolly gonna loose my fogs, oh well they dont light up much.

Hm, the ride quality is fantastic, of course with the KM2s it wasnt like it was with the A/T's I had. I was really impressed with the suspension ride. And the install wasnt bad at all. Really easy. Impact Wrenchs help a lot. And my track bar sleeve was too small so we took the drill press to it and opened it on up. And the a-arm spacer is a pain to install because of location.

I'll get some outside pics tomorrow!

I know IRO sells a compressor. But its too expensive for my wallet so I stick with an aircan. Go with the kor 3/4 spacers. Im getting some next week and putting them on.

Nice Jeep! How does the I6 pull that setup on the road? Does it shift in and out of overdrive much? I've got some moabs and 32 BFG's sitting in my garage just waiting for a lift.

mbuck-it does fine, i havent driven it much. but from what Ive noticed its okay. Prolly gonna regear tho just to get some better mpgs.

marcua-be ready to trim, the once inch wider makes a lot of difference. But I think its worth it. Get at least 4" back space.

Thanks guys, should I go KOR at all 4 corners or just front?

Guy in photo looks as if he's going to be sick. But I love your Jeep and like how it's coming along. Envy, envy.

Nice, getting it out there and some mud on her. Jeeps like to be muddy.
