Pics of My New RE 4.5 SF with 35's

My girlfriend passed along some pics she took of my Jeep after we got back from our first off-road ride with the new lift. Some of the water we passed through on our local trail was even over the 35's... lots of fun & lots of time spent cleaning off the mud!

Can't wait to get over to Paragon & see what she can really do

Nice jeep - the lift looks great. It looks like you got 4.5 inches and then some out of it. It looks good with the whitewalls inside like that.

Nice ride bud. Looks great. Was a tough choice between the RE and Tera for me. I like mine you like yours. We both win. Lets tear it up!!!!

Nice looking Jeep, I think the 4.5" with 35's is the perfect combo. Good move going with RE, I've got the long arm kit on mine and we're throwing the same SF setup you have on my girl friend's TJ this coming week.

Now that is how a Jeep should look; however I think your girlfriend is wearing too much clothing for modeling a Jeep, she is cute.

I wish I had some other pics to post right now as she looks great up front too since I painted the headlight rims with Rustoleum's glossy black enamel. You'd swear it came off of the assembly line like that!

I've been real happy with the mods so far. The street ride isn't much different from stock, to my surprise. I have about 300 miles on her since the install and have had no problems whatsoever... until yesterday. I began hearing a slight banging sound whenever I went over bumps and when I pulled over to have a look, I saw that one of the f***ing disconnect pins fell out. The bottom of the driverside disconnect bar was now free and lodged in the spring! I ordered some spare pins last night from RE but I have a feeling that won't be the first one that's going to pop out. I'm planning on finding a bolt and nut to feed through until my order arrives.

Aside from the "functional" disconnects, the rest of the kit is very impressive. When I intentially remove the discos for some local trails it handles so well you'd need a crow bar to get that big grin off my face... which doesn't look much different then this

By September I'll be ordering a proper set of discos and, to quote the Oracle from the Matrix, "everything will be as right as rain".

Time to switch to Tera disconnects. They have the best design.

I'd recommend doing the Currie Anti Rock rather than another set of disconnects. Improves stability and traction off road, and there's no longer a need to disconnect .
