I just finished installing 2.5" Skyjacker lift this afternoon. Turned our great; althought I got 3.5" rather then 2.5".

Before I put the lift on; my wife told me hold off on new wheels/tires.... her first question this afternoon was, "when are you getting new wheels?"

Where is this at Jersey Shores? My wife was just telling me about a beach where we can roll the jeep onto the beach but we just have to have a fishing pole to stick on the ground.

Democrat Point, it's on the south shore of Long Island. Same deal, it's a fishing permit.
