He doesnt drive that jeep on the road, but i would guess it'd be hard to not squeal your tires around every single corner

Only thing im concerned with is the gap between the bumper and the clevis tab. I'm going to take it to get welded, and hopefully they can bridge the gap and make it strong enough to be a safe tow point.

Emailed Zach and said it wont be a problem. He said center it in the gap, tack on all 4 corners, then weld the sides down

BDS lift is great for the price. Rides comparable to stock and I think I got a bit more than 2" If I were to do it again, I would probably get the 2" rear springs, 3" front springs, and outboard the shocks with something like bilsteins.

mpg's are really killing me... I know 10-11 isn't normal. Anybody have any tips? Thinking of downgrading to an a/t 31 or even selling the jeep

Am i going crazy?
