Not exactly what you're looking for, but 2.5inch BDS lift and 32 1150s

I have a similar stance to everyone else (except the SOA CJ). 3" lift with 1/2" shackle lift and a 1" body lift, sitting on BFG AT 32x11.50R15.



Here's a front stance.



I better side view, (glad to not have those seat covers any more.)



Later, T.J.

Yeah way to much lift, I'll never do that again. I got the 9.50's for $100.00 and sold them soon after that picture. If I was to ever do a CJ again (Hopefully soon) I'd do the same as the rest of you guys, maybe a 3 lift and 1/2 shackle. Good luck all. And a CJ is the SH%#....

Before I took it all apart (again), and installed the drivetrain:


Drivetrain all in, winch+bumper, no roll cage:


2.5" BDS spings, 3/4" (3/8" lift) shackles, 32x11.50x15 TSL/SX tires on 8" rims.

Here is my setup:

3" BlackDiamond suspension lift, 1.5" HD shackles, stock body mounts and 33x12.5 tires. No rubs, good flex. still handles good without too much sway. (NOTE: also have a sway bar and steering gearbox brace and that helps with control too!)
