This is my first Jeep ever, let along my first truck ever! Didn't think I would do that much to it, but after seeing sooo many custom parts for it, i couldn't help my self! Never been off roading, so i'm a littler anxious and nervous. I'm planing to hit up my local trails in the up coming weeks after some mods.

First Day Coming Home. And then the Following Day Installed ceramic tint with 35% back, and 15% in the front.

This week I'm getting a 2.5 Lift kit install. Evo Enforcer Overland Stage 2 w/ King Shocks. The wife and kids are bitching about the trouble stepping into the car, so i'm also picking up the Rock Slide Engineering Step Sliders this week.

I'll keep you guys update....stay tuned

Finally got my new lift installed. Overall pretty happy with it. Suppose to be only a 2.5 inch lift, but it closer to 3inches +. Also I find a tad more firmer than the stock suspension, but at the same time the steering is much more responsive. Going to drive for a couple of weeks and maybe get it readjusted for a softer settings.

I got the Tierra grappler g2s. Hindsight, I should have gotten ridge due to the better off road performance, and they look much more aggressive. But these Tierra grapplers are pretty quiet for road driving.

Regret not jumping to 37s? Or do the 35s work better? Looks good.
