From Rk 3.5 to Superlift

I finally caved and saved up for some new wheels, tires, and the superlift. I still need to find a link to the cheapest superlift kit (help plz!) but already have my 18" rockstars which I plan to run without center caps. Also got 33x12.50 Toyo Open Country Mud terrains.

I bought my Superlift from a local dealer. I think about $1800 is about as good as you'll find with the non-remote reservoir shocks. That thing is going to look beast!

Not to thread jack, but I'm wondering what some of you guys are doing with your spare tires?

I just ordered an OME kit and am going with 255/75R17 Destination ATs, I know it won't tuck under the Jeep, but I'm not sure if I want it on the roof all the time.

Nick, do you have your Rola on the factory crossbars? I'm looking at the Thule 690XT MOAB to throw my tire in, but will also need to carry 2 - 16.5 foot kayaks as well.

Re: From Rk 3.5 to Superlift

About the 5th wheel- im getting the saguaro rear bumper to carry a 5th when I get the cash. The role is on factory crossbars. The rack is hard to center on them since it needs to sit atop the screws on the crossbars.

Damn Nick,

How was you gas milage to begin with? I thought about buying a Rola for a long time but they weigh 60 pounds.
