Facepalm!

Just went to the store and an employee was outside smoking. As soon as I walked past her she said, "Nice ride." I'm getting pretty used to this by now, but I still want prepared for her next sentence: "What is it, a mini Hummer?"

Now I'm sad.

I will keep this in mind! As it was, she did get the politely condescending furled eyebrows and a simple, "No, it's a Jeep." That was the end of that.

Trust me, that's all I can think about these days... just can't decide how soon since it somehow seems a shame to remove perfectly good parts. I had it in my head that I'd wait 'til these tires need replaced and then do it all, but I know I can't wait that long for the lift, especially once I add the weight of the winch. So my choices are lift it now and deal with 32s or just part with the tires now, too. But I do really like these KMs.

As long as we're on the subject I might as well start asking... What I have in mind is the AEV 2.5" lift with the geometry correction and then either 33" or 35" KM2s eventually, but would I hate a 2.5" lift with 32s for awhile?

yep, the jeep is the first vehicle I've owed where people go out of there way to compliment it. although "mini hummer" isn't quite a compliment, but I'm sure it was well intended.
