Angry Florida only - What's your lift?

My theory is that I have the lowest lifted JK in Florida. Please prove me wrong.

So, i'd like to know if you have a lift, what type and how much lift do you have... also what size tires are you running.

This thread could get interesting!!!!

Did he finally decide to sell his? I like those wheels too. 37's wont fit. 35's are going to be close.

HAHA! Everytime I go to HardRock I am sure I have the smallest Jeep out there.

Teraflex 3" (really 4" with stock spacer still on)
Stock 32" tires and rims.

It doesn't stop me from getting on and over "things"

Just a measly 4" LA with little 37" tires.

Should I get the 6" now that it is available?

so how much would a 6 inch long arm lift, 38's or even 40's, gears, drive shafts, etc... run me?


I'm starting to get the itch of "go big or go home"

Thats good to hear Grant. Check this out. There is guy down the street from me that has a 2007 Rescue Green JK Unlimited. I know he has a 6 inch long arm Pro Comp Kit and 37 inch tires. He is not selling this stuff but the good news is he's a huge Grateful Dead fan which of course equals he's a drunk. If we go there while he's sleeping maybe you can get the mods for free. Whatcha think?? Don't mention this to Dave though he's smarter than he looks and he may catch on. Lemme know.

6 1/2" + a 1" body lift and 35's...soon to be 37's. Im plenty bid enough now. I wouldnt want to go any bigger. Unless I went with 40's but then I would need 60's. So I think I'll stick to the 37's or 38's.

Grant your Jeep looks good. Seriously!

Does my AiROCK count since I can go below stock height with it...

Grant its true. You have one of the cleanest, nicest Jeeps in the group. With respect to everyone else that we hang with here. Everyones Jeep has their own nitch that sets them apart. If Hitmoneys Jeep wasnt black would it be as bad ass? Seriously, Karn's Jeep has the same lift and his is bad only Green. But it desnt have that Im going to kill you look like Hitmoneys. Karns Jeep looks like a bad trail rig with the light bar and the way he always keeps it looking like its ready to go. I have the same springs they have and my Jeep is as tall but Im on 35's. Mine is Silver so Im partial to all the Silver Jeeps in the group. Ours just look clean. What aggrivates me is mine looks like a trail ready show queen. People dont realize that I beat the shat out of it until they see the pics (or the severely beat up fenders now). But I think thats what you get with Silver.

If you want to go bigger I'll help you but you need to realize that its only going to bring more issues. I now have to get a new track bar because mine is too short. The bigger you go the more its going to cost.

I will tell you that my friends in Deland bought a Silver Rubi and I help them put the Teraflex 4" kit on it. That thing is bad! It sits just right on the 35's and actually came out as tall as the lift I just pulled off. I couldnt believe it. That Teraflex kit is a good kit.

You dont need 37's unless your going to use them. First off your pushing the D30 front wih 37's. I know Karn beats the crap out of his but thats a big tire to for that little axle. Ive heard some guys say they never had a problem and Ive heard some say they snapped the first trip out. Guess it depends on whether your "Florida" wheeling or somewhere like River Rock. The only reason Im going 37's is because I need them. I need the clearance for what I like to do and River Rock and my bent tie rod only proved that.

Now granted I would love to go 40's because I think 40's will be the norm before too much longer and 37's will be like the 35's are to the 37's now. But to go 40's you better be ready to by a D60 or worry you'll break it if you dont. Just like the commercial, pay me now or pay me later. It will happen.

Long story short...your Jeep looks great. Dont Fck it up trying to keep up with the crowd.
