Wheel color

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
Those wheels look great. You gave me a great idea on color.

Im looking at a 04 Limited that’s stock with factory 235/60/17( might be 235/65/17) tires. I plan on doing a 2 inch lift. Will 245/75/17 tires fit with amount of lift? Thanks

That's about a 31.5" tire plus or minus. With 2 inch lift (BB?) you will need to make sure your spring isos are brand new and trim the hell out of the bumper (unless you're starting with Up Country springs)

My understanding is that there was no Up Country lift on the 04s unless it was added by the dealer.
