Probably. I'm putting parts on it when I have time. I trimmed my fenders yesterday, added another inch to the front/rear bump stops and modded the tire swing today. I still need to fill my argon tank to lengthen the sway bar links, build a front truss, etc...

Here's a pic of my new steering stops, also shows where I ran out of gas and ruined my welds on my lower gusset!




Rokmen arms...

You guys with the 4" lifts would probably know this. I like the look of a 4 inch lift and a 1" MORE body lift. Do i have to get new differentials/ drive trains/ or gears to have this lift just to cruise around in big tires? I have the 08 Sahara Unlmited. I'm not much of a rock crawling guy, cuz it s a new jeep (bought it in 07 when these things were $40,000 and hard to find in a small town, so i'm not getting another scratch if i can help it! Jeep if for pleasure commute to work and all

What is a big tire to you? I know you are going for mostly looks, but I can tell you, the bigger the lift, the smaller your big tires are going to look. I wouldn't go past 3.5" lift for 37s personally. Especially if you're adding a body lift.

The bigger the lift, the more parts you'll have to change also. People always say, "I'm no rock crawler" or "I almost never go off road". But seriously, the last thing I want is a rough riding, crappy handling lift for driving the thing everyday, day in and day out. My shocks and springs ride better than the oem Rubicon ones. And you don't want to make your Jeep unsafe or unpleasant for your daily commute.

Love to see pics. Also what wheel you used and if you used any spacers. Curious about the 15's due to the cost per tire savings but not sure if I want to give up any handling with the increased sidewall with the 15's.

Got my before picture when I bought it in Feb. Finally got it lifted this weekend....Still have more things to do, one at a time....lol or my wife may kill me. My friend at work who is huge into jeeps sold me the tires with 4000 miles on them, ordered me the rims and the Rough Country lift and spacers and quick disconnects and did it all at a amazing price.
