Ok. So I figured I would offer something remotely productive to this web site other than Porn and Asinine Comments. I know there are some of you out there lurking and scared to ask some questions because you think you may get flamed for asking "What Spacer Kit Is The Best" or "Do Fifteen Inch Wheels Fit A JK" (Yes they do. Use the search feature). You know from looking, that a lot of the vocal people out here run $2,500 plus lift kits, big ass tires and wheels that cost more than my kids kindergarten tuition, bumpers and tire carriers that rival your local parks jungle gym equipment, and lighting and electrical set ups that make a Kiss concert look like a Yani Show at your State Fair.
So here is my contribution. I have a Rough Country 2 1/2 Inch Spacer Basic Kit, 16 Inch Soft Eights, and Some POS 285x75x16's AT from Pep Boys. Don't give me shit about the tires. I had a buddy who worked there and he gave me a deal that I couldn't beat. Plus, I lost my job last year and took like a $75,000 a year hit to my income.
So I go out to smoke today at work, and there is a stock JK parked right next to me. I snapped some pics to show some of you guys what your Stock Jeep would look like if you went this route.
And YES, you can install this lift yourself. I am a self proclaimed moron and I did it in a few hours. Just take your time and pay no attention to how long the directions say it should take.
RC Lift = 139.99 minus 10% for the JKOwners Discount, but shipping pretty much negated that.
Wheels = $100.00 off Craigs List. Deal of the Year! Had to drive to Mobile, AL to get them though.
Tires = $700.00 for all five installed balanced, and whatever the fuck else they do.
Once my Kid Graduates from school in 10 years or so, or I get a better job and sell my Boat (Somebody PLESE BUY IT! It is in "My Garage if you want to check it out), I will be able to get bumpers and stuff. Look out for deals and you too can do it for under a grandy!
