I finally finished the installation of the 2.25" BB. Only took about 6 hours from start to finish.....very easy. Running 33x12.5 w/ 3.75" BS.....no clearance issues so far.

Looks a lot better! Not much room for off roading with those big tires but it looks nice!

There is really not much opportunity for offroading in Delaware. I was going for style points.......plus I like to drive out on the beach for surf fishing. Should have enough travel for that.

Looks good. Did you do new shocks, and if you did, what brand? Any special tools needed? I'd like to do a mild lift to my TJ.

big improvement, looks great. I would add a small body lift to get a little more clearance. and make sure that you extend your bump stops if you are going to go offroad (you can use hokey pucks and rtv)

I was thinking about a body lift.........might have to do that. I already took care of the bump stops.

Next mod will be the surf rack.......I will start to weld up the brackets tonight.

Looks good Spider. You may want to dive more thought to that body lift.
