So I decided that i would get my tires this past Friday May 9th, 305/60/R18 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ on the stock rims, I actually kinda like them i know i will upgrade to different rims one day but probably not until i get some 35's and regear.

Also there are 1.5 spidertrax wheel spacers on as well.

You do all your business through the off road shop in your pic?
I'm from Stratford, not far from you, and I'm curious about them.
Looks good btw.

For the most part yes i go through Offroad Addiction, any small things i do myself, like the end caps above pretty easy to do and doesn't require alot of knowledge just tools and steady hands, they're pretty reasonable shop though i would def go check them out they can give you a quote from emailing them or at the shop.

So I'm trying to save up some money to buy just a leveling kit, perhaps a teraflex one, its cheap and teraflex makes some pretty good products i've heard.

Does anyone have any different suggestions?

I'm leaning towards Terraflex as well. With just under 13k miles on my '13 JKU Rubi, I've decided my next mod will be a lift. (So much for keeping it stock until it's paid off). After reading various posts on the subject by more seasoned Jeepers, The Terraflex 2.5" coil lift w/shocks (brand t.b.d.) seems to be relatively economical for someone wanting to run a 35" tire on stock 17" rims ( I dig the stocks). The springs will also support the added weight of front/rear bumper/winch should I choose to replace the stock components down the dirt road. For your particular upgrade it seems like some WF members do the both the leveling kit and coil spring lift...should you decide on a taller lift in the future.

Be sure to check out some of the TerraFlex videos on You Tube. There's one in particular that talks about all sized lifts by tflex.

Thanks for the input I'll be sure to check out that video.

I've looked at some rough country lifts as well but i seem to be getting too many mixed reviews when reading about there products some good and some bad, i have heard that they're better quality then they used to be but still worries me about putting money into a brand that seems to be so divided with consumers on there products.

So for now i guess Teraflex seems to be what i will be looking at.

Sahara Rims looks great in matte black. Did you paint them yourself?
they're not painted there plasti dipped, very easy to do, you just need to cut a couple black garbage bags in half and put them on the inside to make sure the brakes are covered.

I put about 10 coats on all the rims you need about 4 cans. you can find videos on it on youtube

I ordered some rugged ridge euro light guards for my headlights and tail lights.

I decided not to get the fog and blinker guards as i don't think they're that nice looking.

it was actually in hamilton, but i've been trying to find stuff around london with no luck.

I wish there was a off road area around london, let me know if you ever find anything though i would love to meet up and have some fun with another jeeper.
