MikeMTJ I really don't think 31's look that bad. When my lift comes next week, I'm gonna have to run 31's for about a month. Anyways, I agree with the black rims. I love crager soft 8's, and they are cheap as hell.

I bought one already with one of these lifts in place. Do you notice the jeep get squirly driving down the road. Like the back end wants to come around on you. I've got 33" and a 4" lift.

Thanks
I did notice that on my lift; on acceleration the jeep would pull right and on deceleration it would pull left.
I blame it on my incorrectly adjusted adjustable track bar. i measured up front and was off 1.5" on either side. I have yet to drive the jeep since i the readjustment due to backordered wheels from quadracrap.

Or just get adjustable upper and lower short arms like I have, much cheaper than any long arm kit.

No I don't notice anything like that at all, hope it doesn't change when I put 33's on, i'm only running 31's right now.

My control arms were not the same length I would say a half an inch difference, which doesn't sound like a lot but it is when u are trying to get them to line up lol

yjkid95 Looks good man, but is your rear wheels look like they were moved forward a couple inches like you shortened the wheelbase. When you lift a tj up that high it actually shortens the wheelbase and you need to center the axle back into place. (So I have heard at least). Other then that the jeep looks good.
