Re: Lift kit. Yes or No??

Scott hates lifted Jeeps in general. He wants 'em lowered! Everyone has his or her own taste. I like 'em LIFTED.

Re: Lift kit. Yes or No??

lift it right.

buy the spacers, new shocks, and a +1 size tire at the same time.

the bridgestone dueler A/T revo is really popular tire for the 2in lift in 265/65

heres mario's wifes rig with that setup

Re: Lift kit. Yes or No??

Mario's WJ is a great example of a lifted Jeep.

Personally though, I'm with Scott and I'd say lower it but its your Jeep bro!

BTW; why would lifting the Jeep wear out the pinion seals on the diff/T-Case faster?

no lower control arms for the wj, just a dead axel or a live axel.

and quick question, is your wj 4WD?

The drivelines have more of an angle on them.

Re: Lift kit. Yes or No??

ok, I just hate the kids that lift their 2WD Xterras, 4runners, and cherokees. If they were building baja trucks then I could forgive them, but they never are, so they look stupid driving around town without a spot of dirt on them. lol
