Well I finally got-r-done! The 4" Rancho Sport Suspension Lift went in along with the 315/70R17 BF Goodrich All-Terrain KO's on MB Chaos 17x8.5 alloy wheels. I am quite pleased with the results. Have a look for yourselves. It certainly isn't the biggest beast ever, but at least it's my very own man jeep. Overall change in elevation 5.25" Very Nice!!

After


Thanks to Steve R. for your help getting this kit installed.

You know that jeep would be really cool if it wasn't so Orange.
Other than that, I'd have to say I have a little jeep envy.

That'll be all the wise-cracks I'll take from you, Johnny. Until you man up and get your lift in I henceforth will refer to you as 1/3 wave. Smile

The tires have been installed on my wife's expedition. I am very interested in selling the five factory 18x7.5 alloy wheels.

As tempting as it is, I'm not jumping on board the hater's express. I've already defended my color with valor. Anything else would take me down the dark path toward hatred, and I won't do it
