Before and After

I recently added a lift and 37's to my Jeep and have a before and after set of pics for ya.

Before: As you can see, I am dragging the back end a bit..


After: Someone removed the tree, but it is the same spot. One year later and a lot more room!

You can make all the plans you want, just don't plan to fail.

That's a great idea for some before and after pics. You can really see the difference a lift and tires makes in a situation like that. Jeep looks awesome. Thanks for sharing.

35s with 4.10s are bad enough with an automatic in my opinion. The engine appears to keep up, but there is some hunting on uneven ground (not necessarily hills) especially around 45-55 MPH. I try to turn off the OD in those situations to avoid the frequent shifting. I cannot wait until I get my 5.13s.

I still have the 4.10's and an auto. It is a real pig in that gearing. I have to wait another 1 1/2 months for the 5.13's to get here, but that is just the price I will have to pay. Off road performance is still OK since I'm not trying to Ralley it or anything.
