I have been researching lifts like crazy. Finally decided on a RE 3.5" Short control arms, Bilst. Shocks, AEV Black Pintler, Nitto 35", etc. I have a concern for daily drivability and had a knee jerk thought of no lift, running the 35" tires and going with the Smittybilt Armor fenders front & rear. Anybody done this? have pics? thoughts?
I love the look, I'm in VA so the laws are relaxed (4" past fender w/o running lights). Also looking to keep my ride as close to factory as possible. Seems any lift will be a change w/o a doubt. Not to mention, my wife & daughter already complain about the stock height.
So, in a nut shell:
2012 Rubi Sahara Tan Unlimited
35x12.50x17 w/ AEV 17x8.5 Pintlers
Smittybilt Armor Fenders frt & rr
Also doing Poison Spyder Frt & rr bumpers & a winch.
Once complete, I will post pics & a write up.
