It's amazing what a lift and tire combo will do for looks. I really like those simulated bead lock rims what did those cost per rim?

How do you like the ion alloy's I've been really debating on them because the only backspacing they have in the right size 3.5 I believe and I didnt know how it would look on a stock jeep on 31's how far do the tires stick out on the outside of the flair? Could you take some pictures i'm really debating on these rims I just don't know if it's too much backspacing for a stock yj

The shackles are 1 1/4" lift, so an extra 2 1/2" over stock, whatever that is. They're the boomerang shackles from RC, also it has a 4" RC lift. I'm still not sure if I really like the look of them, or if I'm sold on any performance gains. It seems like just a big flat spot to get hung up on rocks, so I may remove them when I get around to a tummy tuck with a 1.5ish" body lift. IMO if the shackles were shorter it would give me better approach angles.

The ride on the highway was kind of bad, it floated a lot and anything over 55-60 got pretty interesting. Now that I have the winch and bumper on there, it rides a lot better. That extra weight in the front just made it a lot more stable, driving around today at around 70(estimate 33" tires and speedo said 60ish) it felt better than stock. I think I still need to drop the PSI in the tires down a bit more as well, I'm running 28PSI but I'm still not getting a full tread pattern on the road, I'm guessing 25 might be the sweet spot.
