I actually really love the JK. It is a rubi so of course I love it more than my sport but it is my DD so it is a really nice ride even on 35s.

I put some nets in the back of the jeep to keep my dog in.




Ordered some soft doors yesterday so I can't wait for them to come. Full doors will go in storage for the summer.

sooo stoked about soft doors

MattMAN your jeep is sick and love the canoe on top of it. Makes me stoked for my canoe/camping trip down to WV in mid July.

Yea the Sunburst is a great color. Got the same color and get mad props on it all the time.

I have spidertrax wheel adapters too that push them out another 1.25" because they were 5x4.5 and I didn't feel like buying new wheels and mounting them.

I like a little poke

where did you get the nets? ...I've been looking all over.

...dude - I love the 35's on 15's - they look so much bigger (cheaper too). Sweet rig.

yeah I like the way 35s look and the price for tires is a ton cheaper.

The nets are from here.... http://www.jeepcargonet.com/

Mattman,

I'm a working on my JK and was wondering what lift kit you went with? When you start really looking there are so many of them to choose from. I am leaning toward the Teraflex 2.5" kit with springs and shocks for a starter.

Great looking ride.

Carl

thanks

I just went with the rough country BB because it was really cheap. I am planning to do 4.5" of lift in the near future and wanted to get it off the ground so I got the cheapest lift I could find.
