lift results

so I lifted my jeep a little bit last weekend. I did the RK 3.5 x factor because I got a good deal on it. After installing, i had a hard time determining if it looked any different. i had slightly oversized tires before the lift, but once I put this kit on, the tires looked stock..or even undersized.

so today I was at the grocery store and happened to see a jeep exactly like mine....well, the stock version! so it was nice to compare. I think the slightly oversized tires and lift kit definitely improves the jeep's looks!!!!

here are pics.....

angles are hard to do when I couldn't get in same position. I'm sure people think i'm weird because I was taking pics in parking lot LOL

Re: lift results

Those tires arent that bad but i would def go with larger tires (265/70/17) or (255/75/17).

Either way the jeep looks great!

Do you feel as if you need wheel spacers?

they are Kenda Klever A/T - got them from buywheelstoday.com for $122 each and FREE SHIPPING! you will not find these cheaper anywhere else!!!!!! they have decent tread and are very quiet! I'm very pleased! I actually have good year duratracs on with my new wheels , but am going to save those for winter and use these Kendas for summer on the new wheels (will put duratracs on stock wheels for winter).
