Default 2 Door JK Photos

Over the last several years I have been researching every lift kit and wheel combo I could find. Very little info on this combo on a 2 door JK. So I decided to make this new thread so that others could see what the 3.5" SC kit and 35" BFG MT's looks like on a 2 door.

I'd love others to post pics of their modded 2 door JK's. Most of the pics on the internet are of four door JK's.

Thanks,
Kevin

I like it! I've got a 2012 Silver 2 dr Rubicon on order right now and that's exactly what I'm going to do to mine.

I love the wakeboard bracket / MaxTrax mount; ingenious idea. I just can't bring myself to pay Maxtrax what they want for those things.

Smittybilt recently came out with a knock-off product at about half the price of the Maxtrax. http://www.smittybilt.com/product/index/166.htm I have no idea how it compare in quality.

Yeah Expo did a comparison of the products; I got banned for my comments LOL

Reminded me that no matter how much you think that these forums are informational and for the benefit of the sport; first and foremost, they are a business and you must not say bad things about their sponsors

Here's my 2007...yes the wheels and tires are small; this was my year for the lift, hood, snorkel, skids & other stuff. Next year I'll do the rubber and sliders.

Glad to see pics of two doors, hopefully more people will submit them. When I was looking to build mine, I scoured the internet for 2dr AEV pics, and they were tough to find. Love the silver jeep, it looks great!
