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.

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!
