Letting the money tree grow a little bit more. Then I'll be getting 15x8 d window wheels with 33x12.5x15 KM2s. Going to the outer banks September 8th for a week. Pics to come with my jeep on the drive on beach.

Leaving for OBX on Saturday. Checked out a buddy's new to him TJ yesterday. I am now positive I have 4 inches of lift from the PO installed pro comp lift. We both measured and got the same results. Would you all recommend JKS 1.25" BL or Daystar 1" BL. Will do the Brown Dog MML at the same time. Just wondering on differences of the BL and pros and cons.

Either or. I went with the Daystar since it replaces the old body mounts instead of just adding a spacer on top.

That's the way I was leaning for that exact reason. Rather have all new one piece. Instead of stacked. Thanks.

Daystar for sure! Start pb blasting those bolts now if you plan on installing that BL anytime soon!

Yes. I've heard the horror stories. Will order BL and MML tonight. Correct me if I'm wrong but all linkage will be ok since I'm doing the MML right. Won't have to worry about transfer case or trans linkage getting messed up?

Yup, you would even be fine w/o the motor mount lift.

For what its worth, I am running Pro Comp 7069 16x8 with 4" back spacing, 315/75/16 D-range KM2's and have ZERO issues with rubbing. I am currently on 3" AEV progressive coils and 1.25" JKS BL. I have 2" bumps front and rear. I can post up more pics if you want...



I live in NJ hence the 6" Xenon Flares oh and this is a 06 Rubicon 6spd as well

Yeah I've been putting a lot of thought into that. And after seeing a buddy's jeep. I now know that I have 4 inches of lift for sure. 1"BL and 1" MML ordered a few days ago. I'll have plenty of room for 35s. I'm just gonna skip 33s

Wheeled today on the drive on beach in the OBX, NC. Four wheel drive made a very load clicking noise when under power. Transfer case? Driveshaft? Front Differential? I've read some places that this is normal but hearing it today made me worry a little more. First real time I've gotten it offroad. Pics to come. And I will be here for 5 more days. So more beach wheeling to come also. Selling paintball gun and a lot of other stuff for more jeep cash So major upgrades to come in the next month or so. Thanks guys.

The transfer case shift linkage ( the 4wd shift lever that sticks through the floor) vibrates on the tub and Makes a vibrating noise that sounds like something bad but it's just a noise. It did it on my old YJ, I took the the shift boot off and trimmed the body back an inch or so.
