2" Lift -- Before and After

So I am new to the Jeep world and didn't want to look like everyone else! I really wanted to get something for my Jeep to make it stand out. I have been reading A LOT of posts and decided on this set up. Started witha Rough Country 2" Suspension Lift Leveler Kit. Not too bad to put on besides the bolt holding the strut fork to the control arm. Can you say air hammer!? Then I wanted to go with 265/70/17's Goodyear Duratracs. They put them on and I was rubbing at about 3/4 turn on the inside fender well. They downsized to 245/75/17's and that is much better but I still have a very minor rub at full lock. IMO, I am not confident in the wheel spacers so I will have to look at getting some new wheels with a lesser offset than stock. But very satisfied and it looks great! I was really surprised how much it increased ground clearance in the front. I have seen a lot of people asking about these kind of lifts so I took some pictures to maybe help out with decisions being made.

I can't open any of your pictures, the error message says something about an invalid attachment.

Re: 2" Lift -- Before and After

Sorry bout the pics, lets try this again
The first set of measurements pics are at the front fascia. The last 2 pics are a measurement of the ground clearance at the pumpkin.
