If my eyes do not deceive me that does not look like a willys edition

Ahh I forgot that the whillys does actually say "whillys" above the fenders, thats the JK.



Looks clean. I normally wouldn't do anything to a special edition but the whillys is an exception. I would start with a suspension lift followed by bigger tires.

Also, remove the jugs

I wanted to look into getting a 3" lift and 35"x12.5" tires preferrably Mickey Thompson's. what lifts are most reliable/ inexpensive?

One affordable lift that has a good reputation on this forum is the Zone 4.25" lift(3" suspension lift and 1.25" body lift).

That would be a better fit than a 3" lift with the 35" tires.

Please excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is a "willys" jeep?
What are the differences between it and a TJ?

That is a good point.... maybe autocorrect or maybe just my plain stupidity.

For all previous willys posts *willys
