Gained an inch in the back and 1.25” in the front, Had 1k+ on the stock and have 2k+ on the Rubi take-off, No difference in the ride at all.
Lost <~1MPG with the 35’s. Love the ride and the look.

Looks good. Why did you start with an Overland bs a Rubicon? Figured you could save money with the Rubicon take offs on stuff you needed and planned to upgrade the rest outside of OEM? Just curious. Looks good and I like your build.

Did the Rubicon suspension (pre 35s) take any of the float out of the ride. My overland rides like a dream, but sometimes it gets a little bit floaty and I wish it had a little stiffer shock valving. Wondering if the fox shocks helped.
