Nice transformation! I did something very similar recently.

How do you feel about cornering after the lift and tires?

Looks Good.

Is there a reason why you are running the smaller tires with the 4 inch lift?

Nice looking Jeep!

You're right - you can't turn as sharp, something I noticed quickly and it's mildly annoying. The Superlift-sourced knuckles contact the turn-stop on the a-arm sooner than the factory knuckles. I think this may be partially to blame for my worn inner-tie rods as the steering rack has not reached its limit before the knuckles do. So now I'm careful to stop turning the wheel when I know the knuckles are at the stops. I suppose one could grind the stops on the knuckles a little to allow more turn but that would probably have to be done before assembly.

It's just a minor issue, though - I think you'll love the lift!
