Wj New Lift and tires / first jeep update since deployment.

So I ended up getting the Rustys 6.5" lift, and I know some people don't like them and some do. But I have to say that I couldn't be happier!!! The WJ actually rides better then before, witch is oddly confusing but hey cant complain (knocks on wood). As far as tires i'm still on the 32" swampers, but I got a set of general grabber red letter 315/75/16s in the garage and some 16" Crager soft 8s (took me forever to decide on rims), tires and rims should be on sometime next week or so just been busy with work. Other then that the jeep has been running great. Haven't had a chance to hit a single patch of dirt but hopefully soon!

Unfortunately this stupid thing wont let me upload a single damn photo, guess ill try later

Looks great man, need you some limiting straps to help with the popped spring problem. I can't talk because I still have to kick mine back in after every extreme flex. I've got the 6.5 Rock Krawler with true 3 link front on a 04 WJ

You got one of these yet? My new one just arrived. My old one is from a ZJ and it's for 4.5 I believe. So hopefully this new 6-8 drop pitman arm for a ZJ will fit the WJ and make the steering better.

Don't forget to relocate that trackbar if adding more pitman arm drop
