I'd love to run an MT for my next tire, but don't want to sacrifice a lot of performance for it. Also, what's the noise like compared to stock, if you can think back that far??

Thanks Dr. Marneaus! I do appreciate any feedback!
I like in las vegas. There is never snow or rain haha. However, when it has rained out, i avoid driving because the roads here build up oil for months at a time....then the rain turns the roads into the slickest **** ever.

I have hardly any experience driving in wet conditions.

They arent too loud for an MT, i always have a sot fop with the windows down, or no doors, the the tires dont bother me too much.

So you don't get to go mudding to often, huh?

Here in Florida, we get those 10 minute rain showers everyday in the summer time which makes makes it so fun to go out.

i made it with 2 fence clamps, 2 carriage bolts and some nuts. pretty straight forward. i think i mentioned it on page 1.

funny you should mention this because i was just thinking about mounting the hi-lift to those 2 tabs on the front bumper. duno how well they'd hold up though.

edit: guess not. here's a close up pic

took one of these:



took off the roll bar pad, cut 2 little slits in it, put it back on, stuck the carriage bolt through the brace, and tightened it down.

boom. done.

Spring comparison:


after:



Dont mind my best friend, he's just making weird faces because he's used to lowering imports.....


i gained about 1-1.5 inches up front. perfect. nice and level now with the new bumper. and it'll still look good with a winch eventually

thanks to Rollerhman for the coil springs!

What springs was that you used? Cherokee or grand cherokee? is there a model or part number? I would need 1" in the front to level up and I aint even got a big bumper or a winch ...

Just wanted to let you know that I like this thread and will be checking back later when it comes time for me to do some more work to my Jeep. I like the idea of adding the cherokee coils so I probably will when I get knew bumpers.
