Heyann's tires are wore out and I said when they do we will put a lift and some bigger tires on. soooooo it's time to start to look at some options.

I know there are a few people with Lift JK's What did you get, are you happy, or knowing what you know now would you have gone with something different?

also what tire size did you go to and how much did it take away without putting new gears in?

I love my new tires, i got the goodyear wrangler mtr's 35" with the kevlar side walls on a 3.5" lift. do the 4" or 6" with Annes. I should have done the 4. No rubbing at all on mine just had to do a little trim on that front plastic thing. (brain block write now). give me your e-mail and I will send you a pick of my tires. I have gotten lots of comments on them.. and alot of other jeeps drive up to mine to compare. they drive great...

oh ya lost a little bit of power did'nt change the gears yet, go through a little more gas but once she starts moving I'm good to go. And I can still bake them going around corners:D

I am so totally happy with mine Kevin, little less power as I never did a gear change but it's okay for me, have to shift a bit more but still got low range :cool: The Synergy 4.5" lift and Goodyear Duratracs (35" - clearance at last :) ) are both awesome. Rides better on the highway now, don't feel the cracks in the road like the stock Rubicon did. You feel the wind a bit more of course but I love it and the brothers at Jeep Thrills were beyond awesome for me. [36] [cheers]

I would like to be able to go to places like the bible camp with the fam and two dogs towing my camping trailer. Just no way I can do that with the WhoreJ

This jeep will never be a trail wheeler but a way to get into the harder camping places....thats why it needs to be lifted

so why? so we can get more use out of it

Cool man ..a couple buddies just went with 4' lift ... I would do the 4.5 lift , as they all regretted not doing that ... you should be able to clear 35's NO problem with that...

good idea to make the wagon a lifted wagon!

yup Ann's tires are pretty bad so we need to get this done soon. lol there is a pretty good chance that I won't be getting this done at Jeep Thrills though

At least not anything Mechanical. I will still use them for parts and accessiores
