WOW!! im liking the rig man! red is a color that has always been appealing on anything lifted.

Now all you need is to add some fogs!

And What do you mean "slightly modified"? i am very curious to know???

LOl, i went against what everyone said and did a small mod to get more lift.
Doubled up the rear spacers and used some additional aluminum "washers" up front to gain more lift there. It's about 3-3.5 all around. I know many have told me i was destined to die a horrible, firery, vehiclular death, lol, but after 6 months, no problem. I'm pretty tame with it, if you actually want to do some real off-roading i wouldn't recommend it.

holy crap!! you got some jeeping BALLS! seriously i was wondering why yours looks so much bigger them mine! and no, the only offroading i do is through parks and the beach, maybe a jumping a few curbs haha!

have you done any offroading in it yet? just curious? not major.. just little things.

this is something to consider for me, i really like the looks lol! how much did it cost you? and what size tires do you have??

and if is cost you more then 700, why not consider just going with Old Man Emu lift?

Re: Finaly lifted! Rep your rough country lifts here!!

The only experience i can comment on is the "urban off-roading" i've done LOL

There's a 2 foot snow bank in front of my house from the snow plow and i park on that on a regular basis and some curb hopping for short cuts to McDonal's lol. The only real stress the suspension has gone through is a Canadian winter, the roads get EXTREMELY rough sometimes with snow and ice build up. Imagine a constant washboard road and you'll have the right idea. If i was actually doing some trail running and the suspension was running through it's full range often, i would have heeded everyone's warning and not run the extra lift. Upper ball joint failure seems to be the main concern. The new upper control arms that are coming out from JBA and others would fix that.

Basically it sounds like you using it like i am, so i'd say go for it. Total cost was about $400 canadian funds. Just 2 RC kits to get the two spacers for the back. The front i used some existing aluminum spacers i had around and put them on top of one of each of the RC spacers.

Tires are a 265/70/17
