Rough ride, noise, etc...

Love my JK ever since I purchased it I've been modding it, had it lifted 3.5/4 inches, complete suspension upgrade with Fox shocks, front stabilizers, 35 inch tires, new wheels, new bumpers, tire carrier and list goes on..

I'm using mud tires "Lexani" I do believe is their name. Ever since going with these tires and my setup my whole ride experience changed, now grant it it's a Jeep I get that but I wasn't expecting such a harsh ride. I was under the impression hay once you upgrade your suspension that the ride quality improves? The tires make way too much road noise for my liking, the ride is stiff and hard. But man do I love how my Jeep looks, lol. If I change the tires I know that the look that I was aiming for will change ;( is their a way that I could change the tires and not sacrifice it's bad ass look??? If so, what would you guys recommend? These mud tires are HORRIBLE!!!

What pressure are you running in the tires? Also, what load range are they? Both can affect the ride.

Which lift? Mud tires will never drive like street car tires regardless of your suspension and shocks. 4 inches is a lot of lift on what looks to be a 2 door.

I took it to the Jeep place here locally where I got my Jeep modded, they were the one's who reduced the air pressure, ride improved a bit but not by much...

Rubicon Express, I think.. Not 100% sure, it was done by a professional shop who specialize on working with Jeeps...
