4.5" Rubicon Express w/ 33 or 35s

Anyone out there running a Rubicon Express 4.5'' Super-Flex Lift for TJ? I would like to see how it looks with 33's and even 35's. I've heard it can run 35's, but with enough flex?

Show em if you got em, especially 35's flexin.

Yeah I was thinking i would need 1'' more than 4.5''. BL seems to be a good option. I was considering the the 5.5'' long arm, it looks so sweet! haha, too bad its like 1200 more.

Anyone else running the same w/ or w/o BL?

All look very nice. 33's ^^?

You guys have any major problems in installation? You do it yourself? Recommend it? Might as well ask while you're here.
