      Thank you for the kind words! My Jeep has a long way to go, but I hope to have it street legal in early spring.

      I am running a 2.5" BDS lift, with 31x10.50x15 BFG M/T tires on 15x7 wagon wheel rims. I like the stance of it as well, and for the type of wheeling I do it will work just fine. At first blush I thought I made a mistake by only going with 31's because I have a lot of open wheelwell but at full stuff they don't hit a blessed thing. If I had gone with 33's they would be into the fenders on the rocks.

      I'm a 70's kid, having graduated HS in 1980 so I'm kinda going for the 70's retro look to my Jeep. Call it mid-life crazies, but I'm building the Jeep I wanted back in HS but couldn't afford. Other kids wanted Trans-Ams and Camaros, I wanted a Jeep CJ just like this one!

      Mr. Lane, You have a great looking jeep. I really like the stance of it. I noticed you said it had a 2 1/2" lift. I am working on a frame off resto on my 66 and have added a 2 1/2" lift as well. What size wheel/tire combo are you running? I'd like mine to sit pretty much just the same as yours.

      Thanks,
      Ashley Donoho
