Never a fan of blacked out tail lights.. had them on mine and people could hardly see me breaking.
What kind of Uniden CB radio do you have? I got a Grant XL.
How did you mount your 4' antenna?

Here is my jeep, spent two summers working @ 8.00 a hour to get it. Still need some new tires and a few more suspension parts, but that will have to wait since i cant work much during the school year.

does RE make a long arm 4.5 lift? that's the only reason i was going with the RC. I was originally dead set on the RE... it might have been 8 inch wheels. i can't remember. i have a guy who's getting them for me who works in the tire industry. i think he said to go with 10" wheels for the backspacing.

also why does it say on the rubicon express site that an SYE is required with the long arm lift? i've read both ways about it. would a TC drop be fine? I'm not too concerned with breakover angle cause i won't be doing much rock crawling i don't think but i like the sound of the long arm kit having better on road manners. just cause my jeep will spend 85-90% of its life on the road.

Well if you want RE they have a 5.5" LA, no 4.5"

I don't know anything about XJs so I can't help with the SYE issue.

You can get different backspacing with 15x8 wheels. A TC drop would make up for an SYE, but then you lose clearance, which is why you lifted it in the first place. Why are you so set on RE? I would look at Zone for springs, Bilstein for shocks, and any adjustable arms with JJ's. RE uses bushings for their arms making them inferior.

Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.
