Absolute Offroad Phoenix... it's a bit of a drive, but ask Scout about the service.

You might inquire about the installation at your dealership so you won't have problems with warranty issues down the road.

I didn't drive it to much, but the ride is good, I don't think it is any better or any worse. When I pulled in to pick it up, it didn't really look alot different,(maybe not what I was expecting) but while driving I can tell it is higher when I am next to other vehicles. I am used to getting 4"lifts on a pickups and it really stands out, but I think because the stock tires on the jeep are so tall to start with it isn't quite as noticeable. I can try to post a pic if you want to see it.

Good to hear. Would love a few pics too. Also, since you're around this area, would u know of a good place that installs stereos?

I never had stereo work done, but I would think American or Best Buy would be ok. The pictures are from my phone so they may not be the best

From the photos it really doesn't look like it was all that much of a lift. Which is exactly what I am wanting. I love it! I think with a rubicon tire/rim combo it would be sweet! Are you going to leave the stock rims and tires on there or are you planning another upgrade?

I'm starting to seriously look into a lift kit, tires, and rims. U mentioned Moose's 4x4 in Hartford. I'm new to this and don't know what lift to start with? What tire size? What's the most common lift? Tire sizes? Rim sizes? It's a daily driver and I don't off-road that much as if yet so I'm not looking for the best.
