2.5" Rock Krawler max travel lift
Bilstein 5100 shocks
Tera exhaust spacer
35" Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ's
17" Fuel Boost wheels


Waiting for delivery:
ACE sliders

I'll have pics as soon as I can get them.

Nice list!

Btw, the install is a piece of cake and can be done with simple hand tools! I would save $$ on the install and DIY.

My new Jeep's in the shop getting the lift installed today.

I know I could have done it myself, but my wife is in nursng school, which leaves me caring for my 3.5 year old grand daughter.

Jeeps on jack stands and 3.5 year olds running wild are not a good mix.

Can't wait to see the jeep lifted. It's been weird driving a stock jeep for the last week. My 2007 JKU was lifted since the second week I bought it.

My ACE rock rails should arrive tomorrow, so only a couple days of trying to figure out how to get into the Jeep after it's lifted.

Here's some stock pics:

Looks nice, but you're sure that's not black?

It looks dark, but I definitely see plenty of green where the sun hits it.

Besides, I was going to buy black until I saw the BFG on the lot that someone had ordered and was there picking it up.

Did you ever get any pics of these wheels on? I am thinking about getting a set for my Deep Cherry Red Unlimited Rubicon and have not seen any Jeeps with them. I think they will look good, but thought i would check.
