Hmm...I'm not sure how to explain that one. Almost all of the pics of WJ's I've seen with the 2.5" Rusty's kit have a slight nose dive.

im thinking maybe its because of the spring isolaters sagging a little in the rear. Or could it be that I need extended sway bar links?

Got some yellow 9005's for free today at work and thought I'd give them a shot in the fogs, they're actually pretty bright, even threw tinted lenses.

Sorry bout the cell phone pic

Yeah, rims look great. Regardless of how it performs in the snow, it looks good.

I drove a rear wheel drive car in the snow for 13 years, so anything is better than that. Jeeps seem unstoppable to me.

Thanks guys,I was unsure how they were going to turn out.I think they turned out pretty good.

Got some new steering stabilizers coming next week as well.

I just wish I had a hook point on the front with all this snow coming.Got the 4" strap and shackles ready.

I got the s rated.I did not need the e rated tires for the Jeep if I was putting them on my Cummins then I would have got the heavier capacity tire.

that's what I would do too...stiffer side walls right? I do tow with mine though, but I think the "S" would still be ok...
