I am new here...I just did a 2"front 2 1/2" rear budget boost with Skyjacker BlackMax shocks and 265/70/16 Goodyear Trail Runners. I went ahead and replaced the Steering Stabilizer with one from Moog.

I am new here too.

Now I am using 265/75 R16 without lift. To go ahead is working fine, but I need to trim somethings to make trails better.

I've been stalking this place since before I got a Jeep so figured I'd contribute.

I only for this at the end of last year and have spent most of my time fixing it up, seems that just about everything was broken on it when I got it. So it's only been on 1 shakedown run so far so no flex shots yet! But hope to rectify that soon.

I bought mostly as is so I'm not 100% confident on the lift kit, guy I bought it off said it was a 6.5" lift and thought it was OME, but after spending some time under the car and looking at others on this thread I don't think thats the case.

Lift: I think it's an IRO 4" Long arm kit with the Adjustable rear A-Arm add on. It's definitely a long arm from, short arm rear. Has the IRO Adjustable Rear A-Arm and replacement Rear control arms. Shocks and springs and all components look like this kit.
Looks to have a IRO or RC steering stabilizer too.

Wheels/Tyres: 275/70 18s. Moto Metal MO951s in Chrome. Wouldn't have been in my top 20 pick of wheels but can't complain about having 33s. The tyres scrub a bit in the back with a full load and in the front at full lock. I haven't had the wheels off yet so not sure if its running spacers.
Wheels are a tad wide and I think I'll go to a 265/70 when these are gone.

Notes: Front and Rear fascia have had a trim before me and parts of the wheel liner are missing in the front.

I do find that the rear clearance isn't great and it does sag a bit with a full load. Has anyone supplemented their lift with a 1 or 2" rear spring spacer? I want a touch more clearance in the back with a full load but don't want to jack it too high that it drives like rubbish.

Thumbs up My new baby

My first car was a 2004 Special Edition back in 2007 with 30k miles. It now has 147k and is rusting badly (I'm in New England). A couple months ago I bought and shipped an all stock, single (elderly) owner 2004 Limited 4.7 HO with 105k miles from LA and have been going through everything. I thought I'd share the new setup.

Stock silverblade wheels off my old '04 Special Edition powder coated (@powder__man on instagram) in "super root beer" and clear.

3" lift, mostly from Nick ([email protected]), some 10 years old, some new.

Cooper Discoverer STT Pro 265/75R16

OME HD springs
Bilstein 5100 shocks
Amazon front end links
Custom rear end links
JKS track bar. 1"
Addco rear sway bar

I've updated and replaced quite a few things since my last post in this thread:

Front: 3'' IRO Rock-link long arm kit
Rear: 3'' IRO heavy duty adjustable control arms
IRO adjustable track bar
IRO sway bar links front and rear
Billstein 5100 shocks
Moog Trailboss steering stabilizer
Spidertrax 1.5'' wheel spacers
Crown coil spring isolators
Falken Wildpeak AT3 265 70 R17








Did some quick trimming of the front bumper to fit the bigger tires. They rub pretty bad with the wheel spacers.




I still need to put spacers behind the fog lights so they'll clear the tires. Right now the bulbs are pulled so they won't rip off.


I cleaned up the front bumper trim so it looks decent. Might splurge for an ARB winch bumper if I can convince myself it's worth it.

^^That undercarriage is CLEAN! I cannot wait to get back to AZ where the rust demon doesn't live, unlike here in Michigan. Love those wheels also, pretty hard to find though. I'd really like a set for my 04 Limited. Super nice ride you have there!
