    Hey there "Big Blue" really appreciating the forum since I started prepping my new mander for winter.

    I have been studying lots of articles on lift kits.

    I looked at your side profile of your truck and said to my self - thats all I really want.

    I think you stated that yours has 265s with a 2" lift?

    The RC sales person stated their lift is not as much of a lift than a leveling solution.

    If the mander already has a front rake, then lifting each end 2" would just increase overall height and keep the rake.

    I thought a 2" leveling lift would be like a 3.5" front lift and 2" rear lift - because the 2" was really needed for the rear to clear the larger wheels.

    Now, imagine my head spinning with confusion.

    All I really wanted was to put some Rubicon 275 BFG-AT's on it.

    Like I said, your rig looks like it is what I want to end up with - nice job !

    I wondered if you could spare 5-10 min to talk about what you did on the phone?

    Kind regards, Chuck

    Hi Blue,


    Sorry to bother, but I have a question. I just rolled over 100,000 on my Commander. I am getting the rumbling noise in the rear. I took it to the dealership and they said that the rear differential needs rebuilt. The estimate the dealership gave me is $1300. I believe I read in the past forms you had to get yours done before. Did you upgrade anything with yours? If so, what did you upgrade and why? Not sure if I need to upgrade anything while they have it open or if there is even anything to upgrade. If you could message me back with any advice, I would greatly appreciate it!


    Thank You!
    Jason

    Hey Big Blue...new to the forum and I enjoy looking at your great pictures and reading your posts.

    I noticed on a previous thread you had 17 x 8 wheels with 5.5" backspacing. Can you tell me what the offset was for your wheels and what brand?

    Here was the thread

    Thanks again

    Hey, do you know how I can change my username? I would rather be using an alias than blasting my full name around.

    I see you have the WAM winch bumper. Are you thinking of getting the rear?

    Blue, as far as I know I have updated my info, but when I sign on to the site I just go to new posts as I most likely have read all of the old posts short of a search. When I go to new posts there is no mention of upgrading your info, this might help in getting us older timers to reup our info.

    just a thought.

    Good day,

    Since you seem to be continuing the TAG bumper, issue, would you have any details to the installation process and how much was cut out between the tubes?

    Thanks
    Joel
