Nice!

I have an idea on the wheels and tires but what does the lift cost and where did you get it?

how hard was it to install?

I buy all my parts from Northridge4x4. Probably 2k in the lift. Not hard to install at all, though the older I get, the less fun it is. My shoulders and hands are a little sore this morning due to a little arthritis.

Don't forget an alignment.

What's the gear ratio?
Had it regraded Monday to 4.88. Alignment isn’t necessary since the front control arms are fixed length, castor is not adjustable, no adjustable ball joints, so camber can’t be adjusted, and I stayed with the stock tie rod, no toe change from factory. If/when I go with a heavy duty drag link and tie rod, I will get an alignment.

Wtf? There isn't a scratch anywhere on that thing? My SD has more dirt on it. Time to get out and wheel that poor thing.

I just use strings to reset alignment. I like a little toe in to keep DW at bay. Are you sure that there aren't bushings under the joints for caster/camber? A little toe will add a hair of camber, but nothing to worry about.

No adjustments. On TJ’s, used to use a straight edge and a measuring tape and set toe in 1/8” and it worked great.

Yeah, no scratches or dirt yet. She just got it the end of July. 2020 ruined our planned trips this year.

Nice!! Love that color!

I had the Trail Grapplers on my Tundra for close to 6 years and they were phenomenal in the mud! Just changed them out a couple weeks back for BFG KM3s, which I LOVE, but I'll miss my grapplers. Technically still have one of them on my spare tire, which I hope to never have to use!

Ok, after seeing that floor, I want to see pictures of the rest of your garage! Or maybe not, I'll probably be too jealous. Oh, by the way, nice jeep.

Ha! We just bought the house in April, so the garage is still a work in progress. The wife’s list inside has priority for some reason.
