Eventually you'll end up with a lift that requires a rope ladder to get in the jeep

No, was just noticing. I remember the first day, it felt like everyone looked at jeep cause how high it seemed to *Me*

It seemed high for the first week. Walked out of house this afternoon, and it looked really normal, was weird, just thought I would check if that was normal, ha.

Yeah, I have a 4" lift with 35s, which are starting to look like Toyota Corolla tires to me now. Definitely need to throw some flat fenders and some 38s on there.

Man, first day I drove mine after the lift it felt like I was in the cab of a semi.

You got used to it, that's all.

I say go 8".

If you want to cure that insatiable desire to get a bigger lift then go to a jeep dealership and park beside some stockers. Then you'll feel all manly again.

We'll...that is until you see that JK on 37s with a 4" long arm sitting in the service department lot near the exit.

Haha, great minds think alike. Along with a regear.

Not sure if this intimidates or inspires.

Reminds me of one of those big ass dump trucks they drive at the coal mines. Scares the hell out of you when you look out a van window and one drives up next to you.
