Drove it to Ocracoke Island for a weekend of surf fishing! Got to test out the 295/70R18 Cooper Discoverer ST Maxx's in sand as well.

Personally, I would not get it because I don't see it as a complete kit. At 3.25", you will need to adjust your caster and re-center the axles below the vehicle. To do this, you need adjustable front...

A 2.5" lift will be fine for those tires, especially since it's mainly for looks. Anything larger an you could run into more driveline issues.

Look into the 2.5" Budget Boost kits. Terraflex and...

Email cooper. I asked about the 295/70R18 weight and they replied within a day.

Loosen the latch and move it toward the front of the jeep? Works on the doors, and I think the latch is the same.

Don't think this question has been asked: which would you prefer; a rack such as the Gobi, or a trailer with a pop-up tent like the one posted above?

Trailer could be used for more things if you...

Getting a SS with a relocation bracket will only cost you a little more, and may save you from having to replace the SS again. OME with bracket was $110.

I believe the only ways to adjust caster are with adjustable control arms or drop brackets for the control arms. What lift did you go with, and did either come with it?

Make sure your alignment and caster is correct first. Don't use a SS to cover up an issue. Most would say the stock is fine until it breaks. I'm running a Old Man Emu with a relocation bracket and...

That's looks sick. Unfortunately, it's 1.5" over the recommended rim width, which is a little sketchy IMO.

Another option in the 35" range is the 285/75R18. Toyo offers the A/TII and M/T in this...

Are those 325/65R18's? I figured at 13" they were way too wide for the stock tires. What are your actual measurements, and how's the wear?

Anyone found the cause or fix to the leaks at the top rear corner of the doors? Every time I stop I have water dripping down my neck. Cleaned the seals and applied the honda stuff weekend before last.

It's better to have a lift provide extended rear links, if that's what your asking. Then, if your lift is 2.5" or under, you can use your stock rear links on the front.

If you plan on off-roading...

Yeah still running stock Sahara tires. I put mine in the second hole (lol) so it contacted the tube. I think it's more secure that way. With the AEV 3rd brake light bracket it touches both.
