    I wanted to thank you first for the information that I have gotten from the forums. Also I wanted to share a quick pic I took this morning when I got to work.

    Once again thanks!

    Welcome to the club! Great source of information here. You won't be disappointed with the leveling kit on the was the first thing I did (within a week of ownership)...followed by bigger tires. I don't go more then 4 days without someone complimenting my truck....not joking.

    Lol. Thanks and yes putting the kit on Saturday. I was born and raised in Georgia. Born in Decatur but raised outside of Athens on Lake Hartwell.

    Tires are my next purchase. I am thinking stock wheels since I like them so much.

    Did you put any spacers on for wheels? And what size tires did you go with?

    Very cool! I was boating on Lake Hartwell twice last summer.

    Yes, I kept the stock wheels for that exact reason. I looked & looked for wheels and couldn't find anything I liked really anymore than the stock wheels. I almost went for some Rockstar wheels...but they are just too common, I see them on just about every lifted Jeep around town.

    No spacers needed for the wheels, and I went with 275/70/18 Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac. They are about the tallest tire you can put without rubbing issues. They are actually taller than the other popular size of 285/65/18's. I know some have put on 33x12.50's (or the equivalent metric size) but those are just too wide for my personal taste. I don't like tires hanging out of the fenders throwing everything the tire picks up down the sides of the truck. But that is just my taste.

    Here are my before and after pics;
