    So after years of the material sitting in my shed I finally fabbed up my lift kit and installed it. 2" spacers all round :)
    Also fitted wheel spacers and a set of 285/70/17 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZs on the factory rims.
    Gained 4" overall and I'm pretty happy with that.
    The last photo is her next to my dads stock jeep for comparison ;)

    almost complete

    Here's a few pics of the exploder. Thought it was about time I became an elite member and posted as I've got so many good points from this site over the years and have stripped this rig from top too bottom. :exp:
    Still have to finish front bar and a few more mods.

    Well it was time to part ways with my beloved '98 XLT. I got 7 great years out of it. It was just time to let go while I could still get decent money for it. Decided to take a dive into the 3rd gen world. After four 2nd gens I just decided to try something different.
    So out with the old:

    Any rubbing?

    Do you have any rubbing issues with those 265/70/R17s without a lift?

    RKH58,

    are those factory 235/70/16 tires ? they look slightly bigger. I am getting active on the forum again and I am buying a 05' tomorrow in Burlington NJ.
