Your Jeep looks great bro. I'm looking at getting a WJ soon, whats your backspacing on those rims? The X series lift is what I was looking at to , would you recommend it or something else? Anything you would have changed if you did it again , hows that new drive shaft working out?

hows the jeep hold up with all the light on at the same time?
has to be over 60 amps drawn with them all on at the same time
haha the battery holds up really well .. im also running a 200watt amp for my subwoofers and the batt meter doesnt budge

so your alternator should be fine

thanks, the backspacing on the rims are 5.7 and the offset is 18..my tires dont stick out of the side of the jeep but it still has a wider stance once i get 33x12.50s my tires are going to stick out more, rough country lifts are a good start if your on a budget but if you can throw in a couple more hundred dollars i would recommend IRO

when i first got my lift on it rode great and really smooth
but now it only being a year old im starting to here alot of noises ..mainly the shocks clunking but all WJs have the shock clunk..if you want more quality i would go with IRO.. i here no complaints on them on this forum and if you do a quick search on rough country your entering a war

Yea I sold my TJ a little over a year ago and really miss it , I'm getting stationed overseas for 3 years but when I get back I'm defiantly getting another jeep. This time the WJ seems to be whats gonna fit my life the best. I need a weekend wheeler , but a grocery getter to. I looked at the IRO lifts and it looks clean , not to pricey with upgraded arms and shocks . I could never use those 2.2's again .. my teeth and head cant take the shaking!!
