Tried flexing out today. I was about 4" from the bumpstops, with 2" of the JKS adjustable bumpstops installed. I thinks the front should be flexier, but I believe that I may be limited by the Rubicon sway bar, I was disconnected, but not manually.

To be honest, the majority of the pictures are from my iPhone 5, I'm usually too forgetful/lazy to grab my dslr. Although a little retouching in Lightroom 4 never hurt anyone.



Also forget to mention, With the RK 2.5", I got 3.5" in the front and 3" in the rear. I didn't measure before hand but comparison measured center of wheel to bottom of flare against my roommate's JK.

Got my 37's about a week ago. Had to yank the flares to fit while waiting on my Metalcloak flares. Trimmed about an inch and a half triangle from the pinch seams in the rear wheel wheels.













All of my Metalcloak goodies came in a few days ago. Painted the front fenders today, will put on tomorrow. The rest probably by middle of next week.

looking pretty mean, did you notice much of a difference with the kicker sub over stock?

Love to see someone still buying 2 doors...makes me sad to think this "could" be the last generation of them.

Much difference. Of course at 8" and only 300 watts, it by no means shakes the mirrors or rattles your insides. I mostly listen to rock and metal, and this setup is very balanced.

Could be. The 4 door is a better seller and the redesigns of other models have been laughable. Is it for certain? No, but honestly I wouldn't be surprised at all. Anywhos, nice JK.
