Your name will come to you. mine came from promising that i would keep this one for a long time. (ive went through over a half dozen jeeps in the last 4yrs) what size BDS is that btw. and you will love how it sits once you get it on.

What are milk jugs? Is it an LJ thing?

from what ive heard, they should ride all right. ive got full traction springs and theyre nice, i just have stiff shocks right now. The 35"s wont b all that high with 3" lift. im sitting with 4" rear and 5" front and 37's and the bottom of the body is 27"

What color are you painting the wheels ? If you havent bought your paint I had good luck with fusion on a set of flares .

an easy measurement for me was to put the tape from the ground to the bottom of the body. dont have a number for the undercarriage. i can give you clearance #'s if you want. you'll like the ride with 33's though. 37's are a bit harder to balance.
