Boerne 07 Wrangler Thanks and yes I still have the spacers on the jeep. The front brake caliper rubs the inside of the Eagle wheels without them.

JK with 33" MT MTZ's without lift

Here are some pics of my 07 with 33" MT MTZ's with the stock suspension and 1 1/4" spacers before I installed the Skyjacker 5" lift. I got a lot of compliments prior to installing the lift.

Absolute Offroad As of right now, a 5.5" Lift, 37" BFG Red Dot Krawlers, aFe Intake system, Walker evans Bead Lock wheels. I have my Shrockworks sliders, and the bumper will be here next week. Absolute Offroad is now a Shrockworks dealer, so give us a call!!! (Sorry, shameless plug ) I think thats it right now, Oh yeah, driveshafts and yoke conversions. Now thats it. If I forgot anything, 1BLKJP will remind me!!!!

GoodLife It's looks real nice. Those JKs just beg for big tires.

My wife keeps trying to talk me into trading my TJ for a 4 door JK. If it wasn't for $$ I might would do it.

Keep the pics comming.

pkarlie01 Wow Great Looking Machine Look Forward To More Pics
03-12-2007 06:44 PM
dusmcbro Looks bad ace! In some of the pics it looks like the tread pattern is different on the front and rear tires
03-12-2007 12:50 PM
bluvikng That JK is looking pretty tough, Joe. The stance on that thing is awesome. That ought to be one stable mule, on the trail. I saw a 4 door model, at Katemcy, with 37" tires, and it looked like it was on regular tires. Those JK's really accept large tires, well.

They appear to hang down ALOT more than the TJ's but to cure the common problem of the TJ shock hitting the spring cup, this is how they fixed it. They really are only about 1.5" lower. Its like the fender thing. If you measure how wide the metal part of the TJ fender is WITH THE FLARE, its only about 1" narrower than the JK's. There id no difference between the two surfaces, so they just LOOK huge.

And actually if you see this rig in person the fenders actually look great. The Walkers have 3.75" of backspacing and they will stuff up in the flenders nice. The flenders are designed to bend and not break like a TJ's will. On top of that all of the aftermarket fenders right now look like junk in my opinion.

03-11-2007 12:34 PM
Absolute Offroad No, I decided against the PJ bumper for a few reasons. One of them is It was the first one that I saw when I bought the Jeep, then I saw the Shrockworks bumper!!!! Damn, thats one bad a$$ bumper design. The second reason is that I tried calling PJ 6 times and never got a call back. I was planning on being a dealer for them, but I have a BIG problem when as a dealer, you cant get "support". I got ahold of Jim @ Shrockworks the FIRST time I called him, He answered ALL of my questions on his products, so guess what..... I am now a SHROCKWORKS DEALER!! Great product, great people to deal with, and I am proud to be a dealer......

Nice work though guys!

SO did you get the PJ bumper or decide otherwise?

navy-jeepster One of the guys I wheel with sold his 99 TJ, and got a 4 door JK. He had the lift kit ordered before he even had it home.
He installed 35's on it, and it looks sweet.
I will find a pic of it.

SportsGal501 Might want to get some aftermarket fenders,I see a few JK's around here but mostly the 4 door version.None lifted just the ole school jeeps around these parts

1BLKJP Yeah that girl is definitely fat in the hips. They will be big stable rigs. It definitely came out exactly how we all hoped it would. I think Joe's wife Lisa was the happiest of all. She can't wait to drive it to work and showoff her fat girl to everyone.

The fenders actually look pretty damn good on there. I wasn't sure when we started today how they would look. I was definitely surprised.
03-10-2007 11:54 PM
Absolute Offroad Nope, I highly doubt it. I actually really like the front fenders, but the bumper will be gone next week...... It DOES clear 37's though!!! This is going to be one of the best kits out for the JK. Easy to install and very complete. I like!!

Joe, any chance you'll do something different with the JK's front fenders? I've seen a few online with the front fenders removed and it looked really good.
