Is your JK with 35's+ your first lifted 4x4?

Just wondering how many folks are lifting a JK and it is the first time they have ever driven something with a lift.

Voted "Yes, and my first 4x4."

I had a 2WD Tacoma on which I installed a leveling lift, but I don't count it. So my JKU is my first lifted 4x4.

It's my first lifted vehicle and first I've drove on 35's. Have plenty of 4x4 experience though from driving around a Chevy s10 an silverdo 2500 most of my life

Lifted a Ramcharger, a Bronco and a p/u truck, but none were worthy of the Jeep, results-wise.

First lifted here, but not my first 4x4. Wait! I'm thinking an Audi TT Quattro doesn't count right?

Nope, it's about Jeep #15 for me. Pretty much all of them have been lifted at some point.

First JK though.

I am 34. About one per year, on average. Some more, some less, and sometimes owning multiple Jeeps at one time

I don't think I have ever been Jeepless for more than a couple of months. Even if my DD was something else, I always had a "toy".

I had a Tacoma with 5" lift and 32's, then an 05 Unlimited with 4.25" lift and 33's. About to add 2.5-3" and add 35's. Crazy how as I go it takes less lift for larger tires lol!

I've had several Jeeps. My JK is my 9th or 10th so far. Certainly not my only lifted Jeep.

This one so far is my favorite:



86 J10 with a 4" spring lift and 35" tires.
