I got 3in Polu spacers on Amazon for like $70. I know a lot of people say not to do that big of a spacer but I love mine. The install was a pain (PA Jeep = rust on everything) but nothing I didnít expect and we didnít have a spring compressor. I was able to fit 33ís with a little bit of bumper trimming. I may be partial but I think the 3in spacer kit was enough to make it look pretty badass!

Its crazy .... the body on mine is rust free other than a small spot on the rocker that I fixed. But underneath was a different story. When I pulled my coils I couldnít believe how bad they were under the rubbers. Iíd like to eventually get new coils too but Iím not ready to mess with the drive shaft and all the other stuff that comes along with going bigger 🙄

Theyíre Dick Cepek Extreme Country. Reasonably priced and honestly the best tires Iíve ever had. I canít say enough good things about them and Iím not easily impressed. Theyíre pretty loud which may bother some people but I love the sound of my tires singing lol
