You could throw some 33x10.5s on there. The 7inch wheel will actually hold the bead a little better when aired down. I love my skinnys.

Wow, I started reading your post and thought my dad must have found his way onto JF! I happen to also be a 17-year-old girl with a TJ with a 2" BDS lift! My dad helps me install all the mods on my Jeep too. Very cool to find someone so similar to me around JF.

Looks good. I'm glad you got the full lift. I measured mine before I did my install and I got about 1 1/2" front and 2" rear with my new BDS 2". When I measured from hub to flare mine measures about 20 front and 20 1/2 rear. Quite a bit shorter than yours. I contacted BDS and they said I was within range. They must have a pretty wide range. I was also forgotten about by them and had to keep reminding them. They said I may have a problem but I haven't exchanged anything yet since I don't know if I want it any taller. Sorry to hijack. Your jeep looks good.

They only do that so you don't put them in a nursing home when they get older.

Also I want to thank BDS for the fast (free) shipping to my somewhat local distributor. Kind of a last minute purchase and was able to get the kit in time for Christmas.
If it was the one that went to Off Road Enterprises in the last couple weeks, you probably don't want to know that Outlaw Offroad in Santa Ana just signed on as a distributor...

That was the one... I was told that the Outlaw deal was in the works but not finalized yet.

Jason, any problems adding a 3/4" spacer to the front to get it to sit more level? I was going to add the spacers at the time of the order but was told by BDS that the lift would level the jeep without them.

Thanks, Doug

There should be no problem, there is plenty of travel in the shock to accommodate that.

Bit of an update...

We have added 3/4" up front with some Terra Flex spacers and installed a JKS adjustable rear track bar (rear was 1" off after lift).

Finally got the Black Rock type 8 wheels we ordered, mounted them up with some 33" BFG A/T's and we installed them today.

Needless to say, she's really stoked!

Sweet lookin rig.

I'm hoping my 16 year old son will take an interest. If he does, after the lift this spring, the Jeep is his but I'm not going to tell him till he starts to show some interest.

I had my 2" lift from bds installed at phantom off road. Rick did a great job! I had some vibrations so I took it back to phantom off road. Rick installed the bds transfer case drop. That fixed my problem. Next week I am getting the bds steering stabilizer from bds. Jeep rides great on road. It is great off road. Bds rocks. I can not say enough about phantom off road. Rick is great!

Is that a 33x10.50 on the back or a 12.50? it doesn't look as wide as the other four on the Jeep, could just be the pic.

Yes, spare is a 33X10.50 on a 7" wheel. I wanted to keep the weight and leverage to a minimum hanging off the tailgate.

Good Idea.
