My TJ is finally lifted. What do you guys think?

Pro Comp 4" Stage 1 Kit with the MX6 adjustable shocks, and a stearing stablizer, with some BFG 32" 11.5's. I regret buying the 32" I think I should have gone with 33", but they will have to do. Any opinions, criticisms, questions, suggestions, or compliments will be greatly appreciated.

My Jeep is an 05 sport with Dana 44 rear, AEM intake and Gibson cat back exhaust and a stage 2 Jet Chip, some KC 100 watt driving lights and other goodies.

Very nice!!! I like the look of the 32's. I am old school. I don't believe you need to syuff the wheel well with rims and tires. I like to see gaps. Your rig looks good.

Thanks Guys, I've been saving and planning for almost two years. I get some vibration around 50 mph, but not too bad and hopefully it will go away once the springs settle. Now I ned to get it dirty!!

I think I would like to add some wheel spacers to make it look wider. Any opinions on those things? Are they safe?

tires will look better after the rear settles a bit. its sitting really high rite now. with a 4" kit you will need at least a transfer case drop kit to get rid of the vibration. go to your local hardware store and get a bunch of washers, enough to stack about an inch on each bolt, and get some longer bolts. drop the transfer case an inch and you should be good.

wheel spacers will make the bearings in the axles fail quicker because they put more stress on them.

The kit came with a transfer case drop, about an inch and a half, so maybe it just needs to settle.

What? Not to say this is false, but if it is true it's only as much extra wear as a wheel with smaller back spacing.

x2. if you can look at your jeep and honestly say that it is "finished" you are not looking hard enough.
