I do use this as a daily driver when the weather is bad and I can't drive the classic. I would like to increase my down travel and keep the height about the same. I plan to add some armor for protection at a later date. Below are some pics of my rig. Let me know if you have any suggestions.






There are a few more here.

Any reason for the tubes being that big?

Is it the dream that one day you might be something you're not?

No not really. It was my first go at it. The goal was to cover the wheels, but now that I live in TX I dont really have to worry about mud/rain.

I find it ironic that you've gone through an entire thread about 35+ size tires and you have nothing more to contribute than the above statement. Why don't you fill out your profile so we can all see what you're running.

I am running the new Metalcloak Overline tube fenders. I have 35x12.5 Goodyears on 15x10 wheels. I am currently running the stock Rubicon suspension, so zero lift...







I like the LCG, but I can tell I want the belly pan up an inch or two. I've been reading about the tummy tuck, and I may do that in the spring. I haven't had the Jeep very long, so I'm still learning as I go...
