You guys are KILLING me!

Well, at least, not directly, but my wife is going to kill me when she sees what I'm going to do to her Commander.

After reading all the commotion lately about the Rough Country lift, I have ordered one as well as a set of 1/4" leveling spacers from Rusty's and a set of BFG MT 255/75 17.

I found the tires on Ebay. Patriot Tire sells them brand new for $425 shipped to your door. It was a deal I could not pass up. If you have a Paypal account there is an 8% off code that lasts until the end of the month. I got them for $391 shipped to my doorstep.

I am so stoked.

Nice find Ogri!

That is exactly the setup I have planned for my wife's XK in the next couple months with the exception of using all terrains instead of mud terrains. That is a good setup.

That's exactly the set up that I have. I do have a bit of rubbing in the front wheel well. That should go away when I get around to bending the pinch weld over.

Good lord, I don't know how many times I've said that to myself. I'm glad I'm not the only one ! lol.

I keep saying "Don't worry babe, it'll help it tow better".

I don't know how long this excuse will last.

I must say that is one good thing that is coming out of my divorce. I don't have to rationalize any of my Commander purchases to her. I will point out that she filed for divorce BEFORE I made any modifications to my Commander!!

I probably would have rather gone with all terrains, but at that price for the M/Ts I could not pass up the deal.

The 1/4" spacers were on my doorstep when I returned today. I had received confirmation of my order but had not received a notification of shipment. So, This was the only part I was worried about not receiving in time.
Now, the lift and the tires are scheduled to arrive, one tomorrow and the next, on Wednesday.

I'm anxious to get this done. I feel like a kid at Christmas.

Well, everything has made it. I got the lift yesterday and the tires today. So, tomorrow it begins.

I suppose you want photos for proof?

I have just the opposite situation. Lee is always asking me if there is not something else that I can buy for the Commander. Maybe it is a way to increase her Jewelery collection. I often call her "The Princess of Paypal"

You are right, it gives them a reason to go buy something also! The third week we had our Commander she told me our Jeep looked small and wanted to know how to make it taller and tougher. I was floored, she opened the flood gates!

It's funny you'd mention that. The tires were sitting in the garage when I got home tonight where my wife had brought them in. I opened the boxes to look them over and Rochelle approved. It wasn't long after that she informed me that we were going to make a trip to Atlanta Thursday so she could do some shoe shopping.
Her shoe shopping could end up costing me more than the lift and tires.
