1st Azusa Trip with 4"super lift "Verdict"
OK No action pics I was by myself with my 7 year old boy ,, But as for the 4" super lift Its rocks I was able to do anything I wanted get out of deep mud deep sand and do Hard trails & hard climbs , ,, But at a cost I put the jeep thru a hard trip no pansy stuff .. The only proublem I find with the lift is its just not high enought for thier recomened tire size I was rubbing alot front I tore up the inside fender well cover on the driverside also rear driver side I bent the fender seem out nothing a rubber hammer wont fix since its on the inside its not going to be a eye sore . I have to bend it back so the plastic running board and plastic fender cover will fit back . But I wanted more out of this lift ! The 4" lift isnt enought for the recomended tire size 285/70R17 In order to make them work for real off roading you will have to go with a 6" lift or do some fender mods .. Phunkeydude would like to hear your opinion on this .. Other then that this jeep can now hang with the big boys! Heres some pics

A friend who does extreme lifts on trucks (his is a 23" lift - not for every day driving) looked at the 4" lift on my Commander and did some articulations on some blocks to show me the lack of wheel clearance for front fenders and is going to first add 1" steel plates to see how that does and then may go to 2". His comment was, "it looks great as it is and would be fine for driving to the mall if all you wanted was show", but he knows I want to take it off road for some dirty fun and recommends 1-2" more for propper clearance. I already hacked the inside fenders for some room but he said dont cut more, just go higher.
Keep me posted on your endevors. Looks like you and your son had a blast. My 6 yr old son and 3yr daughter love to go Jeeping too!
