Pro Comp 4" Stage 1 Kit with the MX6 adjustable shocks, and a stearing stablizer, with some BFG 32" 11.5's. I regret buying the 32" I think I should have gone with 33", but they will have to do. Any opinions, criticisms, questions, suggestions, or compliments will be greatly appreciated.

My Jeep is an 05 sport with Dana 44 rear, AEM intake and Gibson cat back exhaust and a stage 2 Jet Chip, some KC 100 watt driving lights and other goodies.

Very nice!!! I like the look of the 32's. I am old school. I don't believe you need to syuff the wheel well with rims and tires. I like to see gaps. Your rig looks good. :punk:

Thanks Guys, I've been saving and planning for almost two years. I get some vibration around 50 mph, but not too bad and hopefully it will go away once the springs settle. Now I ned to get it dirty!!

Looks good. by any chance, did I see that rig on 84 today around exit 17 area? I saw one that looked just like it on my out of Waterbury

I think I would like to add some wheel spacers to make it look wider. Any opinions on those things? Are they safe?

350chevrolet 04-27-2009 08:28 PM

tires will look better after the rear settles a bit. its sitting really high rite now. with a 4" kit you will need at least a transfer case drop kit to get rid of the vibration. go to your local hardware store and get a bunch of washers, enough to stack about an inch on each bolt, and get some longer bolts. drop the transfer case an inch and you should be good.

350chevrolet 04-27-2009 08:30 PM

wheel spacers will make the bearings in the axles fail quicker because they put more stress on them.

18thcenturyguy 04-27-2009 08:31 PM

The kit came with a transfer case drop, about an inch and a half, so maybe it just needs to settle.

Fatbob309 04-27-2009 09:28 PM

Save for an SYE to get rid of the vibe. Its money well spent!

meyers 04-28-2009 12:42 AM

Looks real good. Now to get some mud on it !!

Jiffydarren 04-28-2009 02:08 AM

What? Not to say this is false, but if it is true it's only as much extra wear as a wheel with smaller back spacing.

i started out with 2 in body lift and 32 x 11:50 on my jeep over 6 years ago
a couple months latter i added a 2 in bb spacer kit,the 32' looked a little smaller,but not to bad.most jeeps are never a finished product lol.all i can say about your jeep is,great start,looks great:cool:neo

jamesbernatchez 04-28-2009 11:27 AM

Looks good. Ever since I got my Jeep I keep seeing lifted TJs everywhere now :)

Giancarlo 04-28-2009 12:03 PM

chip=waste of money that could be saved for regearing which is best way to get power back from upgrading to larger tires

x2. if you can look at your jeep and honestly say that it is "finished" you are not looking hard enough.
