New suspension, wheels and tires

Thought I'd share with the forum the recent upgrade I've done to my CJ. Replaces factory springs with BDS 2.5" and the PO's monster 8" shackles with BDS boomerang .5" lift shackles. I also replaced the ball joints, tie rod, drag link, sway bar bushings, correctly attached the steering gear box(PO broke off two of the bolts). I also finally received my mickey thompson classic lock black wheels and mickey thompson MTZ(33x12.5). All I can say is what a difference in the way the CJ rides now, HUGE difference. Here are some pics:

I second the like of the color. It reminds me of the '06 TJ I used to have. Looks great!

Thanks, it's called Deep Night Blue. I believe it was one of the OEM colors for that year.

I've got the BDS 2 1/2" springs too, and I love 'em. Do you have any steering issues (caster) with those shackles? I'm considering 1/2" lift shackles to compensate for the winch weight.
