JIM.
I have considered that. Especially moving up to either 17Ē or 18Ē wheels. Iíve looked through craigslist today and there are several so that might be the route I take.

Wow! I like it. Thatís kind of the look Iím going for. Looking at putting new tires on it now and of course looking at the Bestop NX Trektop softtop. Did you change the gear ratio for the lift and wheel/tire combo? That and what size you running. Looks like 35Ē????

do you have a lift on it? If so how much? I want to do just enough where it doesnít have huge spacing between top of the tire and the fender well. Wonít be doing any extreme off roading just simple trails. Yours looks perfect for what we want to do (son will be driving to school and baseball). He saw this pic and said yeah, I like that. So that gives me the excuse to mod it up. Lol.

I put a 2 1/2Ē TeraFlex lift on, not a bad lift but know there are better more expensive lifts available, metal cloak AEV are from what I hear two of the better MFG. Mine was $750 and was easy to install came with all the right basic lift components. Too many options out there, do your research and be happy.
