32" KM2s with the IRO 3.5 is a sweet setup.

Indeed it is, but you'll probably need either control arms or some trimming if you don't want rubbing. I like the sticker, my buddy has the same one on his mustang, but dark blue.

The only thing you'll have to trim will be your front bumper, not a big deal.

I still recommend Hankooks. I think they have better traction in snow and on ice than BFG's, or at least the BFG's are not noted for being good on such surfaces, while Hankooks are. And the Hankooks actually cost less.

The lift has been ordered. I ended up getting the IRO 3.5 benchmark series. I upgraded to the Nitro shocks with yellow shock boots and also got the JKS quicker disconnects.

It came at wit the discount to about $560.00

Great lookin jeep and the price was great to!

I have the same lift but i orderd Zone off road shocks and disco's to go with it. 32" will look great but under flex (expecially with disco's) theyl rub like a mofo. 31"s look so small under em but once you actually go and flex it out youl be happy you went with em. they fill the wheel well's so nice when flexing.

cant wait to see it done! good luck!

lube wont help. were having problems getting the nut on the backside of the bolt, but you only have a small slot to get the nut on.

Front or rear track bar? I'm guessing front. I'm gonna guess front. On my LP30 I had to cut off my nut with the handy piece of metal on it. So I replaced it with a proper sized nut with a few washers as spacers so I could fit a open ended wrench in that slot. Don't know if I would recommend that though.
