Thanks for the info!! I really like the stance of your Rubicon, I believe mine will be very close to it when done.

I hope you do not mind, I referenced your Rubicon in another post. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f96/jk-suspension-tire-info-picture-guide-389731/ if you want me to, I will remove your info. If you do not mind, please post there as I suspect several people would like their Jeeps to look like yours.

i think your Jeep looks great, but i'm wondering if your electronic swaybar disco switch still works. it's a function that i'll want to keep when i lift mine.

Did you go with a heavy duty steering stabilizer such as one from Black Diamond? If not, how is the steering? I ordered the Black Diamond 3" lift kit from quadratec today since it was more complete than the Black Diamond kit 4wd.com offered. Neither kit includes a steering stabilizer, although Black Diamond, Rancho, and several others make them.

I did not put one on, although I did buy a Skyjacker Steering stabilizer just in case. I don't think I'm going to need it, I can't tell that it steers any different with the lift on it than it did when it was stock.

I had several people ask me to post some side-by-side pics of my Rubicon and my wife's X. Here are a few I snapped this evening.

Thanks! I think am going to have to upgrade the wheels on my wife's X now. She really doesn't like the ones that are on it.

Love it, great balance of tire size and height, that's how they should've come from the factory.

2 questions, what is your overall height now from ground to top.

I love those tail light guards, where did you get them?

Thanks.

Thanks. With the hard top on, it's 75.5" from the ground to the highest point. I think the soft top is a little higher but I haven't measured it. The tail light guards are MOPAR accessories, I got them off a Chrysler/Jeep dealer that sells parts on ebay. You could pick up a set at your local Jeep dealer though.

I suppose it's just an optical illusion, but your wife's silver X looks longer than your rubicon in post #52. Then again I sometimes think I am going blind and am into bifocals these days.

This picture especially makes it look that way. It was the perspective I was taking the picture from...it's really an optical illusion.

So you're just under 6'3". any problems with getting in underground and parking garages? I think most of the lowest garages are about 6'2".
