WranglerChik Don't know if I posted this before, but I'm gonna do it again anyway (hmph)

Plastidipped the grill red and the hooks. New steel bumper (going to get the bars after I do the suspension).

Realized way later that I didn't even have to tape the stupid billet! Doh!

I would say if you don't ever have this issue, then maybe you don't need the lift... But if you do any wheeling and start scrubbing, you may damage a tire.

Those do look really nice!
Love the shoes!

I have a manual and currently running 33's with 3.21's, it's not bad but I want more gear.

My new problem is that I ordered a 2.5 inch lift a few weeks ago, and now I don't think I need it..... I parked up beside a couple of JK's with 315's and 3 inch lifts, and my little 285/70/17's with no lift looks no different really.... Am I just wasting $$$ with that extra 2.5 BB?
I go to the mountains every couple of weeks, but stick to the main roads as much as I can.. I just wanted some good tires for the snow and packed ice we live with 8 months of the year up here in Canada. I figured since I was buying new tires anyway, I might as well go for the 33's, and would want to lift it for the clearance. Seems like I have a lot of room under there already. I paid $50 for a stocking fee on the lift , but I just may let them keep it, and stick with it the way it is. Watcha all think?

Mines the one that says Yeti Edition on the hood on the right side of the pic. The other 2 are running 315/70/17's with 3 inch lifts. I know side by side they are taller, but proportions look identicle with a smaller tire and no lift...

Don't forget about the break-over angle too. Lift will only help. Enjoy

It all depends on how u like it. If ur not doing any hard stuff and ur not bottoming out or stuffing the tires in the fenders I would leave it. $50 is a little bit to lose now than spend on a lift and regret it later.

RATyson I installed my new patented "Snakescreen" snake depositor system. It is used to deposit snakes along the trail to ward off any would-be assailants.

Installed and field tested:
