Not the best pictures but it's all I got right now. They are nice units...heavy duty. I recently got into some deep water and was gonna change the fluids and just decided to upgrade. I like them.

You don't even need a lift for the 33's. Just my 2 cents - from a crazy guy going straight to 37's...
What's the size for a 2015 JK sport?

I'm with you on merging into traffic. That's primarily my definition of "performance". I don't have issues in that arena but I can't imagine what 35's would do to 3.21's.

Did you install lift yourself or what was the labor hours for installation?
How's the drive feel with the larger tires?
Thanks for info.

What part of TN are you in? I live in the Clarksville area.

Enjoy, John
Hey guys - I assume you're referring to my rig. If not, disregard.

I had Jason Cooper at Rock Your 4x4 do the install. I'm in the Knoxville area.

The ride is really good. It's a lot better than stock. I would compare it to the ride quality of a Chevy Tahoe or Suburban.

I love the 35's but they definitely bit into the performance. Even though I have 4.10's the performance drop is a lot more noticeable than others have reported.

Yikes, only low-mid moderate. The step in the first picture looks huge. A not so subtle reminder that I have a ways to go with my rig and off-road experience.

Thank you! Nope no winch. I just started my build (just got my lift like 2 weeks ago). I am beefing up the mechanicals first, bumpers and winch will follow. (I also have my 37 inch spare in the rear cargo of my 2 door minus back seat until I pick a rear bumper/tire carrier lol). Out here we mostly winch to other Jeeps or just use straps. 98% of the time its just straps unless like pulling up a big hill. The tall spiney cactus (Saguaro) is actually protected and there are humongous fines for damaging them. Down here in the valley, we dont have big humongous trees like back east (I am originally from Ohio). That trail in the pics is considered maybe the lower-ish to mid end of "moderate". It was my first "big kid trail" ever this past weekend.

12-23-2014 01:53 PM
Sucker Punch I don't see a whole lot of half door JK's, much less a JKUR with half doors like mine , so I had to snap a picture this morning at the post office.

BTW, Early Merry Christmas to you all! Enjoy your time with your family... or Jeep family

Sucker Punch Yeah, I love my ace sliders. They definitely saved you. Could have been a lot worse.

thanks yea wasn't the best start to the morning. Just a small dent in the rear bumper which I already had a new bumper on order. Broke license plate mount and taillight but no body or fender damage on the driver side. All I can say is I glad I added ace rock rail and rubi rail they saved the body. The ace rails powder coat was scratched and the steal bumper on the truck got bent
