1-2". You can fit them on stock height but you don't have a lot of wheel travel.

85 has big paws and meant to hit the (2) instead of (3) for the amount of lift. Prob end up going BDS or Rancho. I would love to do OME but they are nearly double the price and still don't have shocks. Plan on running 5100's for shocks and install Currie shackles.

Once we get the Jeep all set up, I plan on taking him out to RC to show him what rock crawling is like and what his jeep can do...

85 - You should try to get the truck Sat so you can get the 35's unmounted from the Cragar Soft 8's. This way we can clean em up and get them ready for "new" tread.

The clock and Tach was an additional option on the renegade. I am an original owner. Here is the window sticker. Should be identical to yours!
The Laredo package the tach and clock were standard along with chrome grill wrapped grab handle and steering wheel.

Floor panels should be arriving today from Quadratec and I'm sure 85 will be posting up pics of them. Hopefully this weekend we can cut out the cancer and install a few of them. Really excited to get my hands on them and see the quailty and fit/finish of them. Curious to see how much work it is going to take to get them to "sit in" properly for a clean install
