Thumbs up New Lift and Rubbers

Over the weekend I finally got around to installing my lift and new tires. I went with something a little milder than the 6 inch lift and 37's I had on my previous cummins. I ended up doing a 3 inch front, 2 inch rear, along with the RC 1.25 inch body lift. I went with a set of 325/60-20 FALKEN ROCKY MOUNTAIN ATS tires.

Everything went smooth until I went to put the tires on. They were rubbing the upper A-arms. I ended up having to run a 1/2 inch spacer in the front to clear. The lift did throw the alignment way off but its all good now. I love the way it looks over stock. Kind of how they should look from the dealer!

I also added in a back up cam in the tailgate like they do from factory. It cost me $20 and plugged right into my LockPick!

Here are some pics. Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Oh and if anyone needs, I have the stock Wranglers with only 5k on them!!!

Not really anything. Im looking for a set of the Smittybilt N-Fab Wheel-To-Wheel Nerf Steps because my wife is short. Other than that, Ive already swapped out the muffler with one of the Mufflex 14's and threw an intake on, so until someone get a programmer out, this should be about it.
