    Super ride and super felx are both quite similar, except for 1 thing: The super flex has the super flex bushings in the lower control arm, while the super ride has rubber bushings.

    Looks good, same setup that I have,m except I'm running 31s, w/ no bushwackers.

    Looks like you could have gone with 33" - but other than that very nice... repaint your roof rack though - looks a little rusty in the first pic.

    Probably could of gone with 33s.

    The rust is just the side brackets (I think shovel/axe mounts) on the Roof Rack. Teh Rack itself is in good shape.

    Thanks for the compliments. :)

    The thing with the RE lifts is that they do it lift it higher than adversitsed at first, but give it 2 months, and it'll settle down, so 33s would fit right now, but in 23 months, they'll probably be a bit big.

    Here are some better pics after a wash and wax. My front bumper and rear bumper/tire carrier arrived yesterday so hopefully this weekend I can install them. :) My wife has already approved Rocker Gaurds as long as it has a step for her. ;)

    obviously

    not a priority, but something down the line to help with tires.

    nazifornia doesnt allow you to have uncovered tires.

    I got the Bushwackers for 2 reasons....1...becasue I like the look of them...and 2....because Maryland State Inspection requires the tires to be covered.

    Everyone knows... 90% of jeep owners are posers who never take their trucks off the pavement... :mamoru:

    yeah, but ford, chevy, dodge, nissan, toyota, suzuki, land rover, mercedes, etc. aren't marketed as "trail rated"

    I have nothing against jeeps, just the whordes of posers who go out, buy them, lift them then never get them dirty.
