32's on a stock Jeep...

Here are some pics from this weekend of my stock '03 TJ with 32" tires. I ordered my Pro Comp 4" lift last week and it will be installed this Friday. I can't wait!

I bet that rubbing is an awful noise.

32's on a Not Stock Jeep

Just got back from Tahoe with the new lift and it rides great. I got the 4" Superlift with Bilstein 5150's. It rides almost as good as it did stock. I'm very happy with the lift so far.

Be forewarned that the ES-3000 shocks included as standard in ProComp's lift kits are EXTREMELY stiff riding, few Wrangler owners can stand the ride after they are installed. Me included, my first lift had them and they were in my trash can within a few months. At the very least, I'd insist your ProComp dealer (4Wheel Parts most likely) agree to replace them with Skyjacker Hydros for the same price, or upgrade them to ProComp's MX-6 shock that has 6 stiffness settings so you can dial the stiffness down to a reasonable level.

He got a Superlift with Bilstein shocks. I agree about the Procomps though.

I just noticed that, he posted that update while I was delayed in completing my post a few minutes later. I was also going to say to entirely avoid the ProComp lift entirely but I figured it was too late for that and it would have just made him feel bad about it.

I didn't hear anything good about the ProComp lifts and that's part of the reason that I went with the SuperLift. I was going to get the RE 3.5" Superflex but since I only take her off road a couple times a year I decided to save myselft a few hundred bucks and go with the more basic SuperLift. Like I said, I'm very happy so far.

Also, I had her really dirty in the snow over the weekend in Tahoe but these pics were after I cleaned her up.

I bought it from the guys at CA Offroad in Modesto, CA. You can pick it up pretty much anywhere, including 4WheelParts.com.
