I posted months ago when I purchased my jeep and it has been a blast to drive. 92f27fbe4f662a55df14b4177d43a2aa.jpg

My kids love it and we have taken it to the drive in a few times. 32dadc5d48fdcc9d127b2068c581393c.jpg7e80d5a408b77fbe08796ac2f941e7f5.jpg
But I was saving for a big upgrade. b243732927ccd955ec6bd5105346b4bc.jpg00dd84edd8e0d082d9e5acef6c420ed7.jpg858e7835ca475287ed77cca4a82a7807.jpg61ecc95adb8da59c8ab95c4815a1d797.jpg7b28798ecee379f5e57807ac44a29c66.jpg

I had a 3.5 inch suspension lift with adjustable track bar added. With 17" Mickey Thompson sidebiters, wrapped with Toyo all terrain.

She is looking good. Man I remember going to drive in's in our 71 plymouth satellite station wagon. We would put a sleeping bag on the roof and watch the movie. Once and awhile he would back it in so we could lay in the back while they set in lawn chairs.
Have you done any off road adventures yet? Are those 35s?

My wife said no to an Unlimited. I really like them but the truck is going to get more good use.

Yes sir 35's. Going bigger would mean a bigger lift and that takes a lot more upgrades. If you do it right.

We laid the back seat down and put blankets and pillows down. Real cozy for drive ins.

I still need to get 456 gears before I start off roading. I lost some power when I went to bigger tires. But I do plan on going off road by summer.

Looks really good. I remember putting slightly bigger tires on mine, it made a real difference in the way it looked, the stance, everything. Good job.

We looked at both the 2 door and 4. The 2 door had no cargo room so we went for the unlimited.
I loved my truck, but I really wanted the AR15 of vehicles so Wrangler was the best choice. Lol

Looks good. I love how you took before and after pics with the same child so you can really see how much it was lifted. Her head's next to the mirror, then beneath it in the after pic.

So where are you attaching the pistol with light on that jeep? I'm officially advising against it, but I really want to see those pics! Ha!

Your going to like that Smittybilt with the synthetic rope. I installed one on my 04 Rubi and was very surprised at how well it preformed. It worked as well as my Warn and about half the cost. Mine had a cable so I just through a old blanket over it during a hard pull. To be honest I really didn't expect it to pull as well but it always did it's job. I buried her in a bog well up to the axles and not a tree big enough to attach a strap to. Luckily Derrick had a Pull Pal in his Jeep and that sucker works. I bought one the following weekend.
