So what is the current amount of lift? 1" body and aprox 1" suspension?

I really like the stance!

Thanks, it performs great being so low and the suspension geometry is correct.

1" body, no suspension lift up front (high lines), 1" axle tube lift in the rear making it kind of a suspension lift. The tubes on the 8.8 are about 1" bigger overall giving it a little lift. I was going to install spacers or 1" coils up front but seeing as how the rear sits with tools, spares, and passengers it's perfect as is. Rear just needs some fender flare trimming to be completely rub free.

It was a blast, I loved the challenges it gave us plus I didn't feel like I was overbuilt for the trail.

Victor, running 40s and the smallest axles he could find, broke coming out a huge hole. I have a video of it, I'll get it uploaded as soon as I can.

My only damage from the weekend went to my hard top-

And a broken oil pressure sensor...but I hated that thing anyway. So I took the top off
