Finally, new tires, wheels, and lift installed...

It's amazing what a difference throwing a lift, new wheels, and some 35s will do for your Jeep.

I've got to get used to the ride, it's certainly different. I had a 2.5" coil lift installed, still using my factory shocks. Will the ride be alot smoother if I get a set of Rancho shocks?

Also, I need to get the AEV ProCal for my speedometer, etc.

One other thing I low fuel light typically comes on at 50 miles to empty. Seems like now the low fuel light does not come on until 40 miles to empty? Not a big deal, just thought that was odd. Will the Procal fix that too?

And, should I go ahead and had it realigned now?

Anything else post-lift install I should be aware of?

Yes pics. Then you get answers.
Do not perform any mod for looks alone, mod for function. I promise you if you plan your mods to improve function, you will have a Jeep that "looks" the way you want.
