here is one of the best comparison i could find.

the red one has a 4.5 RE lift and 35's. The yellow one has a 4 inch lift and 33's.

crazyredneck no pics yet, the fenders sit at the rocker panel and cowl line. i think it is about 3-4 inches higher in the front. not sure about the back. the rear flares sit about 1/2" below the top of the tub i think. i have not installed any flares on the kit because its not painted.

its states that the kit recommends 8-9 inch rims with no less than 3.5 inch backspacing.

my question is, with 15X8 rims with 3.75 backspacing do you think they would work? i have a set of 33X12.50 on the cherokee that i would switch out with the tires on the wrangler.
