i ran 32's with no lift. i'm much happier with the lift now. makes it look a lot better. i'm already looking to get a bit more with a 1" BL and i'll do a MML with it.

i have always been a fan of big tires with the truck slammed as low as possible.

i love the look of tube fenders, but they wont work for me as they wont give me the clearence i need. im going to raise the front fenders up `4" (even with the first line in the hood) and raise the rear wheel wells to the top of the rear tub. then on go the 35s and later (after i tire of breaking D35 and D30 shafts) ill swap in some 44s

hood scoop? not so much.

both.

in a perfect world, you want your drag-link to be horizontal. in our world, close is close enough.

it also helps to have your drag-link and your panhard bar as parallel as possible.

i enjoy the rocks too, building my jeep for the rocks, cant stand the mud.

i enjoy trail riding on occasion, but for the most part, i want to beat the shit out of the TJ on some ledges / boulders / cracks / anything else

hence why i am keeping it low.

i have to say...with no lift, 33s, and 4.00 BS wheels, the tires tuck nicely between the fender and the fender flare ... although i wont lie ... my fenders look like they got hit by a truck :lol:
