2002 Sahara: Evolution

I've included a few pics of my TJ from the past 2 years. Details the humble beginnings to the present set-up:

2" budget boost w/32x11.5 BFG AT's

4.5" (Tera 3T and 1" BL) w/ 33x12.5 BFG AT's

6" (about 5" mostly RE 4.5" SF components and 1" BL) w/ 35x12.5 BFG MT's

I'm very happy with the current lift, but I now have an itch for long arms. We'll see.

Thanks guys. I'm running the factory 30 and 44 with stock axle shafts. I can easily get away with them since I'm running limited slips front and rear rather than lockers. However, I've pretty much maxed out the capacity of my factory axles with the 35s unless I swap in some aftermarket shafts some time down the road.

I'm a bit concerned now about the shortened wheel base. If you look closely in the first 35s pic you can tell both the front and rear tires are no longer centered in the wheel wells. I figure I've lost 2+" in wheel base due to the short arms. More importantly the control arms are very downward pointing so the ride is a lot less forgiving. Sooner than later I'm sure you'll see my TJ sporting long arms.
