6 years and no sag? That's impressive, makes me feel better about mine which I've had since 2010. Have all the shocks held up as well?

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Especially since we are talking about Rough Country...

Toyos arent ****ty tires FYI. Have you pulled a control arm to actually look at the bushing, or are you eyeballing the outside? What about your trackbar?

FYI my toyos are damn near bald that's why I said they're ****ty.
Just eyeballing from the outside, got a pretty good view of them and they appear to be good. All other suspension bushings look good also besides the sway bar links are a lil worn and cracking but they will be replaced with discos shortly.

So, I'm looking to put 35s on my Jeep. 2004 Wrangler Sport 4.0L. I'm in school and work full time so I have 0 time for off road play. I would like mine to look like this. I have the rough country 2.5 inch lift currently on mine.

Pro Tip: Then don't lift it and don't put 35's on it.

Not only will you get laughed at for being a poseur. You're going to spend more money on gas than your education. It looks good the way it is, and especially since you said you're in school full time. 35" tires get expensive when you commute. I'm actually taking the 35's off my truck and putting 33's on. My buddy with 33's put the 31's off his XJ on his TJ for a healthy mileage increase.

I mean if you really want to do it for the look, feel free. But to be completely honest it's a waste of rubber, gas, and you will be getting laughed at.

I am running the 2.5" suspension kit from RC with the progressive springs. I also am running a 1.25" body lift. Without reading through this entire thread can anyone tell me if some folks running this kit have needed either a MML or TC drop kit? I seem to be getting slight vibrations on acceleration. I'm thinking a MML would fix the problem but the kit didn't recommend this and even the guy I spoke with at RC when buying the kit said it wasn't necessary.

So - thoughts? MML necessary?
