Size DOES matter!

Well, I did it!! Actually my husband and I did it! 4 inch suspension lift from Rough Country, 15 X 10 Eagle Alloys and 33 X 12.50 Kumho Road Venture MT's. I think this might just be better than..... ...well, you know!

They're amazingly quiet! Kuhmo advised using care when driving them the first 500 miles because of a lubricant used in the molds when they are made. It can be slick until it's worn off. Ask me again in 1,000 miles!

Looks really good. Same lift i have, you will enjoy it. Although i will suggest goin with Blistein or Rancho shocks. The shocks with the kit lack alot to be desired. Good job though.

Not much of an explanation.....the shocks that come with the kit or the Nitro upgrades are very stiff and offer a bumpy ride when your goin off pavement or over speedbumps curbs whatever. Best shocks in my opinion for ride quality are the Blistein or the Rancho 9000 series. Its not like super horrible...but its like night and day when goin to a higher end shock. Just a suggestion

Overtime doesn't work if you're on a salary, then it equates to second job or a really good budget and an understanding wife. The jeep looks great. Have fun with it.
