Just got back form JeePerformance were I had them put on a set of BFG MTs in 305/70/17. Needed just a little more ground clearance than my A/Ts in 285/70/17 could offer. Ended up with ~ 1" more ground clearance under the diffs and rock rails.

Interestingly the overall tire width increased by 1/2" but the tread width/contact patch decreased by just over 1/2". The numbers on paper showed the tread width the same. Not that I care, just thought it interesting. Gotta play with the PSI a bit over the next few days to find the sweet spot as these are E rated tires and a bit bouncy at 35 PSI.

Also had them ramp the Jeep to check the bump stops. With the 2.5 RC lift I am running there was no rubbing up front and very very minor in the rear so I had them install a 2" bump stop. Re-ramped it and BINGO perfect.

Thanks Stan and the crew at JPI for putting up with my OCD when it comes to my Jeep's workings.

Finally got around to replacing the factory front drive shaft today. Could have gotten way with waiting a while longer but have a big trip coming up and want the peace of mine. Another big thank you to the guys at JeePerformance. Now to get out and test it this weekend.
