ok so the time has come to show some progress on the JK.

I have been adding little items here and there for the last couple weeks

Started here:

Image
Image

Then I put on some chopped flares:
Image
Image
Image

Then I decided on the 3.25" lift from RC
Image
Image

I found a set of 35" KM2's locally so I got wheel spacers to be able to use my OEM wheels for the time being
Image

Then thanks to CrawlerMike and Spudbar we slapped the lift on in no time!
Image
Image

these were a pita to install; still not certain they were worth it :lol:
Image

Image
Image
Image

and how it rolled out of the garage:
Image

home waiting on the new tires. I know I will get busted on for the tires. but I am ok. I know what the end result will entail so I am still happy with my JK  8)

Image

the 35's should be on this weekend if I can find a shop to do it Friday

oh.....and some gear changes and 36-37's are in store after Christmas!  :dance:

Oh, Jared I may have to make that last pic my screen saver, so I can have a good laugh every time I get on the computer.

;P

What's wrong w/35" km2s?   If they were a good deal...  Run 'em!

Thanks ya'll.

Im going to run the 35's for now Josh. Supposed to get them at 5AM Thursday morning. hope I dont oversleep :lol:

with the chopped fenders it really opens up more room for bigger meats. the pinch seam is already folded over waiting for more tire.

You can't laugh until you have a green inspection sticker on yours, too.

I kinda have to agree with you on this one Joe.  There has to be something that can be done to improve on that.   :wink:


Jeep is coming along nicely Jarod.  I am looking forward to seeing it.  Come by some evening here soon so that I can take a look at that thing.
