Not really new, but hello anyways

Hi there
I've been a member on here for awhile, old screen name was activelydying, but had some issues with logging back in so hence the new name. Also with the new name comes a new jeep. I've had 2 TJs in the past but just got a 2013 JK about 3 weeks ago. I was never a fan of the fender flares, so I replaced the front ones within the first week. The jeep is a great platform to start making it how I want since the previous owner got the wheels and tires for me. The downside was the he also installed a budget lift to get those tires to fit. I love the jeep but the ride is terrible, so freaking stiff. No need to fret cause a JKS 2.5 lift is on it's way.

Check your tire pressure. I tend to believe that big tires almost need to be aired down unless one likes an old 1 ton truck ride. Like 25psi...or so. We use tires that are rated for at least 2500 pounds each on a ride that weighs less than 3500 pounds.

Jeep looks good dude.

Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a try tomorrow. I think I may cut the back fender flares so they match the front ones. It will also give me something to do until the new lift comes in.
