The lift itch

So today i stopped at the shop that has in stock my 3' BDS lift and I have the money in my account to buy it but would have to push back paying off some credit card's and just make min payments on them. Well I had the itch really bad but I knew what needed to get done and that was to pay off the credit cards.... Now I am thinking now i payed them off have more room to spend on them for a bigger lift lol.... Not good. Any one esle have an itch like this lol???

That is what I am going to do next week. Well for at least the 3' lift part. I want to see how it looks with the stock tires on it and save the money for the tires and rims and pay that off with out using a credit card. But if it looks dumb I will have to put it on the credit card lol

Here are instructions. I got them from the BDS web site. Premium Lifted Suspension Systems - BDS Suspension
You may want to find your exact lift and make sure its right. The PDF instructions are available for all their kits.

Not necessary, but it won't hurt in terms of breaking some of the bolts loose. As always, NEVER use a gun to tighten them back on- use a ratchet to snug and a torque wrench to properly tighten them on. Also, are you in Woodstock, NY? I may be able to help- I'm just over the river in Dutchess County (right off the Taconic)- Mark W.

Do you know will 17x8 5.5 fit on our JK's?
$107.89 x 4
The guy at NTB said he could put 315/70/17 BFG A/T and the rims above for $1600.00 I don't think that is so bad of a price but I am kinda looking for more of meaner look for tires

If my mind serves me correctly, that's about a 4.5-5" backspacing, but I could be wrong. Call the manufacturer, or the wheel dealer- Mark W.
