This is good info. 4" lifts are pretty common on TJs, but good to know they aren't usually done on JK's.

3 coats.

Not sure. All I know is it was 100 grain sand paper. Clearly way too coarse. Should have went 220 or higher. Spent HOURS researching. Did everything else right except this. What a major...

Well.. that didn't go well at all.

I think the sandpaper I used was way too rough. Cause now 2 of my fenders look like sh*t. You can see major scratches through the black paint.

Oh well. You...

Can I ask why not? Seems like half the reviews recommend a promoter or primer, and the other half don't.

Also, I will be sure to sand and wipe em down first.

Quick Krylon question...

For those who've painted their stock fenders...

1. Is it essential to use an Adhesion promoter first? They didn't have any at the store. I bought a primer instead.
2. Any opinion on whether I...

Having 33x12.5 tires installed this week, and am really torn on whether or not I should add spacers.

Goes to show how little my understanding of all of this is. To me, I'd still be running a 3" lift. Except now I'm just using all spacers and don't need all the other mods. So...

Keeping with the same wave length here, Zone has a 1.25" BL for $95. So I can add that while still using my current 2" lift, and avoid all of those other mods that I listed above? Is that...

Another option would be to...

Can't believe how much more complicated it gets for just 1 more inch.

In theory couldn't I just take out the 2" spacers and replace them with 3" spacers instead?
