    Do you remember your rim and tire size combo (backspacing as well if possible) and any pictures to go with it? thanks

    I do recommend putting a 1 inch body lift and engine mount lift with a belly up skid plate itís like adding three extra inches to the bottom of your jeep but you will have to do a slip Yolk eliminator kit.
