Great looking jeeps, guys. I think a TJ this size is what I'll want to build as a DD when I'm out of school in a couple years and have a 'real' job...something that'll run all but the nastiest trails out here, and will get me literally anywhere I need to go for fieldwork as a geologist, but won't be a rolling deathtrap if I take it on the highway.

Unlike most of the pic's people have posted on your Thread, I only have the 4" lift. No body lift....No Coil Spring spacers etc. I have ample room for the 35's as you can see.
Put a winch in that fancy bumper and you will see why I have 1.5" spacers up front. The bumper and winch combp is close to 160lbs on the front of my Jeep. On top of having about 40,000 miles on the lift. Good call though.

I'm sorry if I offended you with my statement. The thread requested pics of a 4"lift w/35's. Alot of folks that replyed had less or more then what was requested and I did mention that you will get spring sag in my post. Coil Spacers are a good option to level the sag out caused by age or additions like ie. Bumpers,winches,etc... Anyway...I like your build and your spare tire carrier you fabed. As for me; I just ordered coil spacers for the addition of my winch to help w/the sag. I plan on buying 5" spings but till then the spacers will do till my bank roll is thicker.
How you liking the long arm from Rough Country? Test it out much? Looking at ordering one soon and just curious of what you thought about it.
I haven't had much time to trail test it yet. I live in the bald flat prarie and have to drive three hours to the mountains and just haven't had a chance to get out yet. I have about 200 miles on the road since installing the kit and the raod manners are good. As you can see from the pics there is plenty of flex both front and rear and the kit is very complete. The only mod I have had to do is address the rear bump stops.
