update for pics here and on 2nd page!
Finally have most of my parts in! Going on the Jeep are:
4xGuard front skid
Rough Country 2" Lift
Bilstein HD rear shocks (won't ship til 1/10
Michelin LTX MS 265-70-17s
Raybestos sway bushings with new mopar clamps (these fixed my front end noise over bumps)
Due to some scheduling conflicts I had to put the tires on/sell the old tires prior to the lift going on so I have before pics, pics with big tires/no lift, and will have (soon) pics of bigger tires w/ 2" lift. Hopefully this will answer a lot of the before/after questions people have on here
I know the Michelins aren't a AT tire but I got them used (9/32) off craigslist for $80 and they have almost perfect ratings on tirerack and it's kind of nice to have a quieter ride for right now (and be around 22.5mpg highway) I'll be getting some new ATs maybe in the bigger size mid summer.
Skid on woohoo
Before (245/65 17)
After (no lift - 265/70 17)
After (with lift - 265/70 17)
Yes I had to cut the bolt but the tires don't rub on the sway...maybe bc its a less agressive tread but I'm fine with that. Honestly these should come on the Jeep from the factory. I love my old tires but these look much more fitting IMO
Sorry the pics are kinda crappy...iPhone4 took em. I'll get the CannonEos out for the final result pics
