Here's before and after. 285/75/16, level 8 strike 5 wheels. About 4.5 inch backspace. I'm very happy with new look and I don't think the pics do it justice. Sorry for pics, I finished at nighttime and couldn't wait to post. Just reprogrammed TPMS and adjusted tire size with procal. She rides pretty good, no rubbing with normal street driving. Tires PSI are at 36, what does everyone else run their pressure at on road?

Sweet, looks great! Amazing how it totally changes the look & personality of the Jeep, eh?

I run my 33" DuraTracs at about 32psi. Winter rolled around and they dropped to 29psi in the cold.

Thanks man, Absolutely! The ride at 36psi felt a little stiffer, maybe I'll drop it down a couple.

Now take the stickers off the fenders, the silver Sahara caps off the bumpers, and swap out that huge antenna and you're looking at one sexy Jeep
