Yea with my wife taking jeep that's what I had to do she is starting to drive her 2014 Cherokee a little more now. But still wants the jeep as hers to make it all dolled up. She says that I already have a YJ so she is taking JK for hers. But overall we all enjoy the trails an that's what matters most.

I took the top off today, looks awesome. Feels great too, riding around with everything open. Only thing is I got sun-burnt real bad, I look like a lobster right now. I think the top and doors are going back on tomorrow.

Been a while! After much nothing doing, I finally lifted my Jeep with the SkyJacker 2.5" coils. I gained closer to 3" of height on my 2 door JK with these. New shoes are Cragar soft 8 15x10s with 4" backspacing, and 35x12.5r15 BF Goodrich Mud Terrains. Also bobbed my front bumper. The 3.21 gears are fine with the 35s, I was worried for nothing. It is still plenty peppy on the highway with the 285hp Pentastar motor, especially on a 2 dr. I had to clearance the front calipers a tiny bit to fit the 15x10" wheels, nothing major, mostly just the flashing from the rough casting. Drove through alot of deep soft sand this weekend, it was a beast! went up dunes and all, never needed 4-Low.

Bumpers and a nice L.E.D. lightbar are on the top of my list.. I'm sure something else will come to me.

looks good man.

If you have an auto I would suggest using 4-low in the sand though.

A few people have damaged their autos by working them too hard in the soft sand.

If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.
If it's supposed to move and doesn't use WD40
