Looks Like I will be a Guinea Pig for the new 4.5" RC lift with military wrap springs , I can get it shipped to my door for $519 I can not get any other lifts with military wrapped springs for close to it. And it has a life time warranty so if I kill it I'll have them replace it

Love the build... Been following on instagram for awhile. Finally getting back to checking in here... There is just something about your islander.... I can just see it all built out like the poisen spider papa smurf. I guess baby smurf is getting a lift soon. Looking forward to the results. 33/10.50 will look awesome. Killer rehab of the rig so far...

Thanks. Right now the tire situation depends on what my wife wants to do. We may sipe the km2's on the xj. And I may pick up some 33x12.50's I found a set if 5. MTR's with 85% tread left for 850 I may pick them up and just buy wheels. If she doesn't want duratracs. QUadratec said there were 2 of the tops I wanted left. So if it goes on Backorder I'll be stuck with a hArdtop and 3.07's for who knows how long. But there is one locally that's new in box for 475. But it's grey and has clear windows. I really want a black top with tinted windows

Tinted windows for sure... My bestop has tinted windows, and it makes all the difference, from security, to a little shade for my kids...

That 3.07 gearing will be fun.... Its doable in the short term...

I wanted my supertop in the charcoal grey to match my interior and all they had was spice and black. +1 on the tint for sure though

Love the Jeep, I really like the color!
Have you considered Treadwright tires? I just ordered 5 new mud terrain 265/75/r16 (32.2 inch) tires for $568.90 shipped. Can't beat that!
