When buying a used Jeep I think there are a LOT of things more important than color.

With that said white is one of my favorite colors for a Jeep. If all else is good, go for it.

I have seen the tires run anywhere from 150-250, just depends on where you look I suppose. The wheels I have seen between 150-175. You can get the stage one procomp 4" suspension lift for 600 or the stage two for 1200. I also added the 2" body lift to fit the 35's and I got the raised engine mounts which lift the front of the engine one inch for a reduced driveline angle. The 1" motor mounts also lift engine fan allowing it line up with radiator shroud properly when the body lift kit is installed.

Thanks for the compliments guys, white is an awesome color especially when complimented by black wheels, flares, bumpers, etc.

Sorry, Im new here...what is a BB and where can I buy it? Is that type of lift good for daily driver and is it easy to install? Also, is white a rare color for wranglers? I dont really see too many of them on the roads.

It is a budget boost that gives around 2"'of lift through a poly. Spacer. It uses your original coils.

my setup is very simple, i went with with the Rough Country 3.25" lift. I used the Cragar soft 8 wheels 15x8 with 4" backspacing, and am running 33x12.50x15 Kumho road venture MT tires. Its a nice setup, that i am happy with, and it didnt break the bank.

I really like the look Scott, nice job. What axle/ratio you running with the 33s?

What did you have to modify to put in the 3.25? No SYE I right ?
This is a great looking size for a Jeep. Hows the mpg with the 33s? Is it your DD?

How do your Jeeps handle on the road? Are they manageable or is it a chore to keep them going straight?

Mine is fantastic. I can let go of the steering wheel and it will track straight until the road makes a dip or curve.

I attribute that to keeping on top of maintenance, the right suspension and tires.
I can usually tell right away when things are getting a little worn, it won't feel as "tight" and will start to wander just a bit and then I get it taken care of immediately.

I've put a couple of dollars in mine over the last few years, didn't go cheap and it has evolved with use, but the basics are:

1): 4" Rough Country X Series lift w/2.2 shocks
Converted to Johnny joints all around because I couldn't keep bushings under it.
2) ORO SwayLoc - swaybar disconnect.
3) Dick Cepek Mud Country tires 35x12.5x15
4) 5.13 gears - on 33's it was just OK with the 4.11s, but on 35's there's just no way. The 5.13's and 33's really woke it up, the 35's made it feel like stock again.

I also have a JKS 1.25" body lift on mine, because I wanted to run 35's. Ok, I WANTED 37's but... that's a whole lot more in the mods department to toughen it up


At one point I had coil spacers and didn't like them so we took them off. They made it feel kind of - well - wonky.

I only have two mods left on my list until I feel like I will be pretty much finished.
I desperately NEED to put a tummy tuck on it and I desperately WANT a full set of MetalCloak arched fenders.

Since I'm a poor ol' retired woman... I don't see either happening for a little while.

Thanks for the detailed reply Kate. Sounds like you have a great setup. Glad to hear that 5" of lift and 35"s is doable, if done right.

I do get some vibrations at high speeds. I have driven through the mountains of west Virginia around 80 or 90 mph and it did great. Sometimes when I'm going fast through a curvy road and the wind is blowing I'll hold on with both hands, otherwise it's great.
