That picture has a 2" on it, but I don't think you can tell. I think 3-4" will make it look mean!

You can check my build thread for pics. I have a red LJ with MetalCloak armor. I've run it on 35s with both a 2" lift and a 4" lift. I preferred the look with the 2" lift, but it performs much better offroad with the current 4".

I just looked at your build thread and I found a pic of you playing in the snow. That jeep has the look I like! Great looking jeep! One quick question though. Did you do anything to prevent rust for your paint from contact with the rockers or rear flares? That's the thing that worries me...rust.

Nope, not a thing. Been on the Jeep for 2 years and no rust. It's not worth worrying about.

The pictures in the snow were with my 37" Pitbull Rockers. You'll need to look further back in thread for pictures with my 35" MTZs.

2" lift and 35s:

Yeah I saw not to long ago. I completely drained my phone battery going through your build/restoration. Personally, you have the most amazing build I've ever seen. It's hard to believe what that jeep looked like to what it is now. I would love to build my jeep like yours but I don't have many skills when it comes to what mods you've done. I don't ever plan on selling my jeep, and I hope you don't either with that story of whats been done. Nice jeep!

Oh yeah? That's awesome. If you can, try to find a rubi. The 04 didn't have a rubicon option but I wish it did. Now I'm debating wether to put in lockers or just find a totaled rubi to swap axles. What state you in?

I wouldnt go quite that far, but thanks! No plans to ever sell it, this Jeep will probably die with me (if you've seen how I drive you know how true that is ).

This is probably the most legitimate statement ever on JF.
