3.5" Metalcloak GC lift installed! It's a little taller than I imagined, but it's growing on me.

Tires are 37" Mud Grapplers with 17x10" BAD wheel bead locks w/3.5" bs. Thinking about doing the 38" Trail grapplers next as I have a little room to spare and they are lighter. Wife has been complaining about the road noise more...
Looks great! Does it still fit in the garage? That’s the part holding me back on 37’s

Last week I finally got my JLUR into the shop for some new shoes and a lift! I decided to go with the BFG KO2 35x12.5 R17s with the AEV 2.5” Dualsport RT Lift and she sure is sitting pretty!

Before:

While at the shop, I had my ARB twin air compressor installed under the passenger front seat and hooked up to Aux4 using the Innovative Products mounting bracket. Yay onboard air! 😄

A few days later the Mopar hinge reinforcement showed up and we installed the relocation tire carrier with the hinge reinforcement bracket.

Needless to say, I’m loving the new additions and boy does she look goooood! 🤩

Any insight for easy plug and play led fog lights? I put in some halos and now need to replace stock fog lights. Thanks!

Damnit man, you're not helping me! I had previously planned on 35's and the AEV, but then decided to go with 285/75R17s and a 1" spacer lift. Then you go and post these.

Are you on spacers or just no poke?

😬 Oops, my bad! 😅
No poke and no rubbing at full lock. In my opinion, the 35 KO2s and the AEV lift combo rides better than stock

Looks fantastic! Those wheels are 🔥 That color matched ring! Love it!

No lift? Got any pics from the side? I haven't seen many pics of 2 doors on 35s in this color, would love to get an idea of how it looks before I plunk down the cash for mine.

Ah, there's my problem - I want ~1" of poke but don't want spacers, so new rims puts the 35s + AEV a little out of my budget

I have officially joined the Hydro Blue family! Ordered 9/11 and it arrived at the dealership 10/8. Just picked it up today and have been getting myself familiarized with it as well as installing the Hotheads headliner and Sound assassin strips.

Yay for another Sahara buddy! I feel like we're well represented on the streets, but definitely outnumbered on this forum, lol.
