Very Nice! Definitely looks much better. Is that the 2" lift? did you put it on yourself?

Thanks! Yes, the 2 lift. I had it installed by a shop. Their price $325, and I thought that was pretty reasonable.

The wheel spacers are 1.5". The tires are Ironman All Country 265/70/17. The shop actually had to do some trimming to get them to fit, but haven't had any rubbing so far. They are pretty tight though, so it wouldn't surprise me if there is some rubbing in real tight corners. Don't think that would happen too often, though.

I doubt you'll get much rubbing at all... I run 265 70 17 with a 2 inch lift and no spacers. At full lock I'll rub a bit (not much though).

I like the aggressive look of your tires!
