I dont know about being the nicest for there is a ton of really nice rigs around here (Planmans rig first comes to mind) but Thanks

I have the 4" Rancho sport lift and it came with 5000 shocks.I really like the ride compared to the BDS suspension lift i used to have..it was really rough.All my info is in my Jeep profile if you want to see what else i did to it.

Km2s are awesome for DD,i think the soft rubber also makes the ride better.I like them when i had them but went with the MTRs mainly because of the Kevlar sidewall.I had so much plugs on the sidewall on my KM2s.

Wow consider yourself lucky.I was getting around 14 when i had 35s,3.73 and a tuner.Now im getting 13 mpg and most of the times less since i got heavy feet its still better than my TJ tho and its a manual.

Rogerg After the 37s i have not wheeled it until today mainly because of work.

So far the longer bumpstops prevented me from rubbing. I also had my tires road force balanced because of the shimmy i had @ 40 MPH.Apparently my wheels were slightly bent is why i had the shimmy...im now using the bad wheel as spare.

Here's some pix of todays wheeling trip.

Getting gas for the 3rd time this week



No rubbing at full stuff in the rear.



Front is good also



My brother in law's rig that looks very similar to my TJ



Some random shots

Very well could be the lens of the camera causing the bowing. Although, if you look at it in correlation with the bump stop, it does look very bowed.

Thanks!!! Yeah i know i have the same tire on my TJ and its mounted the right way.Im taking the JK back this weekend and have them redo it.

In your last post it looks like you have 35" KM2s. Did you have the 5.13s with that setup, are they 35s and if so do you recall your rpms at 65 mph. I have an 09 JKU AUTO trans with Bushwacker flat fenders, a 3" BDS and 35" KM2s on the way. I drive 80 miles a day freeway and find my mpgs drop like a rock when a go over 2000 rpms. Now that I think about it, what is your rpms at 65 mph with those AWESOME 37s? Always planning to go bigger.
Thanks.I think it was around 2300 RPM with 5.13 and 35s and its the same with 37s.I get around 14 mpg (80%highway 20%surface streets).

take the pins out at the bottom of the swaybar link to disconnect then swing the link up 180 deg and park the swaybar parallel to the ground using a rope or something similar and your good to go.

When my tires fail me i hit reverse and pick another line.I know its frown upon to have 37s on D30 and i hope this dont turn out to be a pissing thread.But as i stated wheeling styles makes a big difference, even D44 or D60 can be broken with an agressive wheeler.
You are right,I drive fairly carefully myself so I am hoping I don't have any trouble either.
