2.5 max travel pro installed

Finally got around to installing my lift the last weekend and i love the new height of it, tho it does look kinda funny with the small tires. This was my first lift i have ever installed so it did take a little longer than i thought it would but i got everything on and after i got it aligned it drives great so far.

I dont have shocks or tires yet they will we ordered this week ill be going with the RRD shocks and nitto trail grapplers in the 35" flavor and keeping the stock wheels. What do you guys think?

If I not mistaken you will need spacers for your wheels if you plan on running 35's!

Rig looks awesome dude. You definately need bigger meat but once you put those 35s on it will badass! I like the look of the stock wheels as well, but the backspacing sucks. I love RKs pro line. Pricey, but you pay for what you get!

Sorry I meant to say that I installed the wheels spacers while I was putting the lift on. I am a fan of the wheels as well but I might paint them black but we will see

Thanks for the compliments.

Brawler rockers and 35's or 37's will to it off nicely.
Or trim the rear end of the Rubi rail.
I did my lift and flares before I did the tires and gears. Made the 32's look tiny.

You should paint em a dark gray or a gun silver. That would look sick! Just kidding, paint em however you want. Hahaha. I just love silver highlights on a Jeep I think it looks awesome

Speaking of painting tires, anyone know if you can blue a set of wheels the same way you would do to a gun barrel? That would look kickass.

looking at your swaybar endlinks, seems like your axle is off just a little bit by the lift. adjustable tracbar will fix that. Looks really good. 35's will pull it off!

I notice your not running a steering stabilizer or the RK high steer, how is it without? Steering wise (obviously )

Not really, barrells are a different kind of steel. Bare aluminum could be treated with a bluing chemical but it does a weird kinda white rust if not buffed with the chemical frequently.

What size are those tires? And is it a spacer lift?

I didnt really look into i figured after the alignment it would be centered ill have to check it out, do i just measure form the center of the tire to the wheel well on each side?

I think you are one of the first to build yoir rig the way more people should. Skid it up, winch, save for the highest quality lift. Most of us go straight for the tires and lift right from the get go. Me included. Kudos!

Dam I saw that pictures the other day I didn't realize he had 35s, maybe some sleeves and gussets will be next on the list, should I sleeve the rear end also? Or is the front the main concern

Thanks, it was hard to do like that but I am glad I did it that way idk how many times I have read about guys saying doing it right the first time and not having to buy things twice, not saying I did it right or the best but I am happy with the route I took.
