New lift

Picked up my Jeep today after having the Full Traction 3in Long Arm kit installed. Had to take my ACE rock rails off due to interference which doesn't make me happy but I love the lift, it rides great. I need to get quick disconnects since the e-disco is only a partial disconnect.

Looks incredible. Very nice.

If my better half wasn't about to kill me for all of my "needed" upgrades, I'd be all about relieving you of the burden of holding onto those rails.

Though maybe . . .

Seriously though, looks awesome and functional.

The 315/70r17 Duratracs will work for now, if I plan 37s I am going to upgrade driveline first.

Looks great. Forgive me if this is a dumb question- but where were the Ace Rails interfering?

The rear mounts. The new control arm bracket for the rear runs right up to the mount and has a bolt going through the frame right next to the mount as well so a lot of cutting would have had to happen to the rails and I wouldn't want that to effect their strength. I'll try to get a pic today.

Looks awesome dude!

Not sure if it's just the angle of the photo, but in the last pic in the first post your front passenger flare looks like it's drooping down a lil....just FYI.
