Why bother going around when you can just go over?

Not the photo I was expecting.  What were you doing?  did you have to take drivers ed again?



Looks like you are cornering pretty hard, and with minimal body roll, if so  :o

Doing a suspension test and review for American Expedition Vehicles.

Jim the suspension engineer actually came out and installed it and tested with me.

Okay, found some shots on a thread on Jkowners.com.

Nothing dramatic, but that is half the point. Not sure exactly who to give credit for each photo.

Looks badass! What size wheels/tires/lift? Looks to be sitting just about perfect!

Why don't I ever get offers like that?! ???

Currently it is a 4.5" lift, which is really for 37s but I have 35s on it right now. The 37s will be on it soon.

Wheels are 17x9.5" Raceline beadlocks.
