    before and after WOW

    SO.... I started out with an 07 JK X. Nothing fancy just an X. After playing with some friends in some "dirt roads" I decided that I would like it a little taller and better tires. I decided to buy a set of 09Rubicon Unlimited shocks and springs knowing that would raise mine about an 1.5". I then realized that that wouldnt be enough so I decided to but a Terafles 2.5" BB and add that to the mix. In my search for information and ideas I found a set of 315 70r17's that would work nicely for the balance of the season. My stock Jeep started out at 36" off the ground to the lower front fender.



    We then installed the lift and springs and shocks hoping for a total of a 3" lift. Thanks to SteveB for the help on this one. The kit was awesome, it came with rear track bar relocator bump stops , brake line relocators and spacers for the lift.




    In the end of it all we ended up with almost 4.5" of lift. I guess the Unlimited springs were a little overkill.



    Then this morning I went and had the new tires installed and holy sh** almost 6" total. We now stand at 42" tall but it looks great. It's more than I expected to get but I'm happy none the less. I know there are more things that will need doing but they will have to wait till next year. In total Lift, Steering Stabilizer and Tires, $430 including tax and shipping.

    Hope you all like it? I know I do!!!!

    Very cool. It looks pretty sharp!

    If I was a Jeep, they'd have parted me out a LONG time ago.

    I'm a proud member of SOXJA ask me why!
