Looks great-

New tires/wheels--what size and hows the gas mileage now ?

Will it still stay in 6th gear at 70mph ?

Your Dozer is exactly what finally decided on (also in WV). Is the picture outside a good representation of the color? It looks like a darker version of 2011's yellow (maybe a touch of orange) ..... correct?

Sweet looking setup!!
So how does the lift feel on the street compared to stock? Better, worse? Also will it hold 6th gear on hills with those 35's?

I'm looking into those shocks as well. Read on another forum someone was having rubbing issues with 35's on the front shocks. Have you noticed anything, or is it all good? Btw looks awesome!

He did it himself, let me tell you all this guy knows his stuff. I'm definitely adding him to my list of people to hit up when I do mine.(Daggo, Jimbox be prepared for lots of pms coming your way) If he was closer I'd let him do my JK when the time comes. Plus he's a really cool dude to talk to.

No rubbing on the shocks, drives almost stock.6th gear is ok over 55mph. Was able to get about 5 degrees of caster and still maintain a decent front pinion angle. Have to use suspension limiters in the rear or you will drop a spring . Total setup is around the 2500 plus tires and wheel spacers

Does driving almost stock mean that the ride is firmer and corners a little flatter or does it ride softer with a little more leaning in the corners?

I'm trying to decide on shocks for the same suspension. I've been waiting on my Rock Krawler RRD shocks, but I may change to the fox shocks because the RRD shocks have been on back order for almost 4 weeks now and I want to get my suspension and 35" tires installed. I decided to purchase Northridge4x4 Jeep Parts: Coil Springs to hold in the rear springs. If that doesn't work, I'll follow your lead and get the limiting straps too.

Well, it has been lifted longer than it was stock. Drove from NC to Maryland then to Chicago. Averaged in the high 17mpg range. 70 is the sweet spot with the 35s and 6th gear. Thing loves to follow road crown. Once I get the alignment specs perfect I will post them up.
