Question Looking for Pics and advice.....

ok... 2007 wrangler unlimited saraha with 4.10 gears. Wanting to go to 33x12.50R17 Dick Cepek mud coutry tires on 17 inch rims with 4.75 backspacing. I found a pretty fair priced 3" lift but see a lot of jeeps with 2.5". Would you all mind posting some of your pics here with what lift and tire size you have. Please only the 33's since I have ruled out 35's with the fact that this must be a daily highway driver. I would really like to see some that are sitting with a 3" lift and 33's.

Here is the current lift I am considering and welcome all advice...

Daystar KJ09153BK - Daystar 3" Lift Kit in Black with Scorpion Shocks for 07-11 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

Thanks and I look forward to seeing all your rigs..!

Jimbo sweet jeep! I am so ready to mod mine out this april. Here is a question for you or anyone else who come along my thread. I am also planning on adding the rugged ridge XHD front and rear bumpers. Whould that bring a lift down just a tad due to weight?

Kinda depends on the quality of the lift coil springs-

That RR XHD bumper starts out heavy and can get pretty heavy with/winch/additions, so if the lift you want, gets rid of the JK "rake", if you install that bumper---you've got the "rake" back, cause the front drops the most !!

Good luck

Every time I see pics like that or fly over Canada, I think that President Madison should never have condoned the Treaty of Ghent, and we should have just kept coming north.
