Well what I like about the ones I posted is the $10 price tag and how the round will tie in with the headlights and the KC day lighters I already have mounted on the windshield brackets.

Check the frame really good. They like to rot near the shackles. Take a screwdriver with you and poke around. If there's rust you will find it. The corner and rocker guards might be there to his rust so check from inside the tub.

I know there's no rust under the guards. The same jeep was at work 3 months ago getting an oil change and the corner guards weren't there. 1800 is definitely a steal

JohnDoe After buying a number of lights and talking to quite a few people I've concluded that eBay LED's are the way to go. I've bought rigids and I've bought eBay. Rigids are just the eBay stuff with beefer components. Definitely not worth the 1,000 dollar price difference when they're just as bright in comparison.

I have a grill mesh and its pretty nice. Ive heard decent reviews about the bumpers from coworkers and people in the jeep club that i am in.

This but refer to the end of my last post. There's some limits. Also you lose frame/skid clearance unless you're getting into a bigger tire size which is a rough trade off. But it's doable and I know people with well build LCG style rigs on 33s.

Frame/skid clearance, body height, etc. a 3-4 inch lifting rig on 33s isn't that high is comparison to any real big rig, it's just proportionally lifted a lot more compared to them. A body lift can give room for a tummy tuck and gas skid tuck. A low jeep is gona be more stable and ride nicer since its closer to stock specs.

You would lose up travel which depending on your use has varied importance. Personally, if you're running coil springs I think you need travel that matches your springs. You're not gona pull 1 up 7 down out of most lift springs because they won't extend 7 inches past right height and that's basically useless. With something like struts or coilivers that the big boys run it's more plausible.
04-21-2014 04:25 AM
REEDracing94 2in bb in front and truss on my 8.8 in the rear equals about 2in in front and 1 1/2in in rear. 33s. Not rubbing with stock bump stops. I need longer shocks though, there limiting my down travel pretty bad

Sweet! My A/Ts are a little worn out so I'm looking to replace them with some MT/Rs if I can afford it. I'm hoping I can afford some ome springs, but I haven't put too much thought into new springs just yet, so idrk
