I think that is the first LJ on the stock suspension running 35"s. I know of a Tj running 35"s with no lift though.

That bumper looks great, but I think you need to find a better way to mount the license plate.

That looks really awesome, but are there any plans for soemthing like a 2.5" lift? A bl (needed for a TT, preferred for a hi clearance gts)?

Thanks guys, I am in love with this rig...rides like a dream down the parkway too which is awesome...I do plan to run a 2.5 lift and HD steering at some point but next up is the or-fab cage, then a winch with synthetic line, then gearing and installing my front locker and riddler covers and then the lift steering and brakes...

btw i was went back and forth on what front bumper to go with and so glad i went with the infinity finish stainless steel bumper from metalcloak...the fit and finish is second to none and bumper really compliments the rest of the system nicely...

That's a beauty!

Now show us a picure of the booty! I want to see what kind of rear bumper you're running.

So with those Metalcloak fenders you're running 35's on stock suspension? I think I know what I'm doing in the future.

I have a an 06 Unlimited, getting ready to buy the metalcloak fenders but struggling with the 4 or 6 inch flare decision. Yours seems to look pretty good with the 6'' just wondering how you feel about them? Happy with the 6'' or do you think the 4'' would look better? Of course I don't want sand/mud slinging up in the cab either so perhaps that narrows it down? The plan for me is 37's eventually but for now going with 33's probably an 8'' rim either way

6in hands down...the 4in would be nice if you were running some pizza cutters but with any 12.5 rim the 6in fit nearly perfect with a 4in bs rim (mine are 15x8) and when you hit the trails you can always pull the fenders off if you would like...i think the 4in wouldn't have enough coverage

Sounds good. I think I'm going to go with their corner guards as well and do the 6'' flares on those. You give any thought to the corner guards?

the corner guards weren't available at the time so i didn't order them...i will do them at the same time as i do their rear bumper whenever they release it (won't be for some time though)
