That does have some travel to it.
Extended bump stops would also be an option if you don't want to run spacers.

Spacers are a bit of a PITA. I'm very cautious about checking the torque on the spacers and rims. It seems at times that all I ever do with 40 lug nuts to keep up with.

That eats into the Jeep fund. I did something similar a month ago. My wife parked the Expedition just a little different. I loaded our F550 and did a walk around and made a mental note to go forward and not backward to avoid the Expy. Well, got in the truck DIALED my wife on the CELL PHONE and backed up.......$1000 deductible. Have to wait for my new rims and beadlock kit

I feel your pain...



I cranked up the pre-load on the cross bar of the door and got another inch of clearance.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

I replaced the CB in the center console today. Ran a new 18' (1/2 wave) length of RG-8 coax for the antenna. Also mounted a new antenna mount to the spare tire rack. Picking up a new antenna tomorrow. Also go the 12v outlet in the center console working.

Did you change lift kits, or swap out from stock? I ask because I don't believe I EVAH heard anybody say that!

I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you
