Finally lifted her!

Finally got the lift/tires/wheels installed today. Now I've finally got a little more clearance up front than my neighbors Sienna minivan!!!!
I'm very happy with the purchases and I think it definitely gives the Jeep some much needed ground clearance to get to some of the places I like to go. I got the RR 2.5" lift with ProComp 7036 wheels and Toyo Open Country std. load Tires. I think the ride is still great - steering is a little sloppier in my opinion but it basically rides like a larger SUV/Truck compared to what I think was pretty much like a car stock. Feels more like a Jeep should!
I was going to get more aggressive AT tires but the Toyo's will be fine for the terrain I'm going to see, and they are basically as quiet as the stock tires on the highway. Very happy so far overall.

Thanks guys, appreciate the compliments. I'm really liking the ride better than stock personally. Next up, want to add some Rock Rails.

Re: Finally lifted her!

Looks great, just a question though - do you have regulations by your road authority regarding the wheels protruding outside the car body, over here the only way we can get around that is to fit wheel arch flares or something to allow the tires to fit inside the wheel arch, love the black/black look, thanks.
