Jacked up...with pics

Finally getting around to installing the BDS 4" lift on my '5. The back half just got done and I just had to see what my new 33x12.50's on 15x10's looked like so I snapped a couple pics. The fronts are 30x9.50 on 15x6 or 7" for reference

Kind of shows how severe a lift it is actually going to be.





I will post actual lift numbers and a couple more pics when it is finished.

Thats what a jeep should look like.....
unless your going stock restoration.

I did my BDS on my 7 about 6 weeks ago. Took about a month or 1000 miles to flex them in but best springs I have ever used.

should prolly consider getting some boomarang shackles , it doesn't look like it would take much droop to invert those shackles and ruin those springs.
