Almost done..pics to come.

Hey guys, just wanted to share that my 08 will be all suited up with its new lift and tires tomorrow.. I'm real pumped.. I wish I could've done it on my own and got to know my suspension a little better but I just didn't have the time currently/know how.. and it was in the shop for other repairs already.. hoping I don't raked over the coals on the price in the AM(I'm sure I will to the tune of like $1,500 for all the work, we'll find out tomorrow) (I know.. I know.. you don't have to tell me...)but hey.. you live and you learn.. I'll probably be looking to add some more down the road which hopefully I can get under and take care of myself or with a friend...stoked to start making my WK my own and I'll be going on a camping/kayaking trip down the susqee here in PA this weekend with the new setup..
which BTW is:
2" Daystar lift...(probably would've went RC for the all metal parts.. but they were able to get the Daystar quick from a local place...people seem to be pleased with them though, so I'm not concerned)
265/70/17 Cooper Discoverer AT3's
1.5" wheel spacers
and a pinch weld mod

I'll post some before and after pics to this thread during the week when I get back.. excited to hear what you guys think and any advice you might have. Thanks..
Also, big thanks to AntsJeep and JeepCoop for their prior advice and help!

Re: Almost done..pics to come.

Sorry it took so long for me to get some photos up.. I've been pretty busy this week... they are just quick shots from my phone so they aren't the best quality but you get the point... the first two attachments are stock.. the last 2 are obviously with the lift in and new tires.. just did the pinch weld a few days ago too
Also threw one in from the kayaking trip.. 14 miles down the susqee with no current isn't the shortest day on the water...

let me know what you guys think of the lift and what i should maybe do next..

Re: Almost done..pics to come.

Was wondering what the next mod you guys could suggest that I do...
My plan was to PD my wheels and take the air dam off next, but after that, I'm not sure what I'd like to do...
Fog lights maybe? Theres none there...
4xguard front skid?
Bilstein HDs all around?

Suggestions welcome.. what should come next? What fogs would you suggest doing if I go that route? and how much does a new blinker stem and computer flash to recognize them from the dealer run?
