4.5 inches of lift and stock control arms hows it ride? maybe some lower control arms should be on your soon to come list. Looks good though I like the combo.

1.25" BL, only 3.25" suspension, should be fine with stock control arms.


jrb470, the Jeep looks great. Great choice in mods.

Thanks for the compliment!
It's exactly the look I wanted...even with the BFG A/T's... love the look and feel of 'em.

Today I'm gonna hang the spare on the stock carrier...I'll get pics along the way!

Added Spare to Stock Carrier

I just got done adding my spare to the stock carrier. It was easy.
I had 2 spacers left over from the TC Drop Kit and used those.

All I did was remove the 4 bolts holding the 3rd brake light assembly down, placed the 2 spacers under that assembly and reinstalled the 4 bolts. It gave the perfect amount of clearance for the 33's and there was plenty of slack in the wiring harness. Here's a pic:

VERY nice looking! what kind of sliders are you gonna get? if you get tub mounted ones can i suggest you paint them to match? i did on my Green sahara that has painted flares and it looks SOO good and get compliments all the time because it looks factory but still hard core. looking great tho i'm hoping to buy the rc2.5 off a friend and sell my SJ 2" and and install my .75" spacers to get that look

Thanks!

It's starting to level out now as I drive it more!
My TC Shift Linkage is knocking like crazy, so I ordered that bracket from Advanced Adapters; it mounts the linkage directly to the transfer case rather than the body.

This weekend the wife and I are gonna hit the beach so I'll get some cool pozer shots!
We live close to Honeymoon Island State Park, so we'll make a day of it!
