Thanks, yours looks good too . Yeah I have the Rokmen lowers but trying to avoid vibes at the moment. Waiting for my TW shaft and my Rokmen uppers (whenever Currie decides to produce more JJ ends) to square it away. Hopefully a next weekend install.

GO BIGGER! Not really, I loved my 285's on my TJ when it was a DD. Perfect combo of weekend wheeling and driving to work the rest of the week. Sometimes I miss my 285's, but I love my 315's.

A few more pics from 2005:

Ya its not my DD, but I drive it on the street alot too. 285's should be a nice upgrade from my 31's. It'll be a slight improvement offroad, plus i'm itching to change my painted Gamblers.

Thanks. It's a Knoblock bumper. The guy is on eBay and his username is knoblockbumper. I like it a lot. I just need to get the rear.

Thank you for posting this picture. For years, I have been wondering what a TJ/LJ with AEV Highlines and no lift would look like with 33s. It definetly has a LCG look. I bet that setup is very stable and very capable offroad, yet probably has a better than factory ride due to the bigger tires. Am I correct?

I wonder what my LJ would look like setup that way. The LJs seem to need a 2" lift to look right.

if you look closely, you'll see I also have a AEV/Nth degree tummy tuck, so my ground clearance at the skid is about the same as you would get with a 2.5 inch lift with the stock skid

yes the Jeep does handle better than stock, the tires are wider than stock and the stance is wider with the spacers plus I went with Duratrac as opposed the old stock MT/R's ... for off-road I'm still looking at some mods, I have a new front bumper and winch sitting my garage, I'm waiting on the SwayLOC I ordered to arrive, after that the bumper needs some customization (one to make the SwayLOC work and two to look better with the highline) ... then I'm looking at levelling it up (back sits lower than front especially with I load it down with hi-lift and misc stuff in the back) and maybe lifting it ever so slightly (thinking of the 1 inch H&R springs talked about in another thread)

my opinion (for what little it's worth) is that LJ's (regardless of lift) look best with 35's (most proportional in my opinion)

Sounds like you have a pretty good plan. Do the Duratracs ride smoother than the old MTRs? I've considered that same tire.
