How do you like your Bushwackers? I have a set and I am contemplating whether to put them on or not when I go bigger.

I love the look of them. I guess some ppl don't but I do. I have not had the jeep off road since I had them but I do not see a problem with them.

Yes it has plenty of clearance I just wont chance offroad till I set up the bump stop's. And I only have the aal kit that has been on for a yr. I also do not have to have a SYE this way that is the other reason for only going with the 3.5 lift.

There was quite a bit of cutting involved but the front was easy. The rear is a pita to cut slits and fold it up but that is the best way to do it. here is a link to the write up I used to do mine. It will let you know what you are getting into if you go this route. Hope this help's.

it looks really nice, but i'm having a hard time with that. either your numbers are wrong, or i'm doing something wrong.

i have a 3" lift with 31's, and i had to open the front because i was rubbing and i don't have nearly that much room in the back. with 33's i don't even think i'd clear it..................................now i really have to go outside and see why mine seems so small.

Who's brand lift do you have? The RE lift lift it 4" in front and 3.5 in back . Also the bushwacker's made a huge difference. I will post a pic of mine on 32's with this lift with the stock flares later tonight.

RE6020 3.5" XJ Super-Ride Kit
Just that and the shock's and of course the bushwackers.

Also you are not far away from me so we could meet up so you can see it in person so you know exactly how it will look.
