Kept the height stock and also put on Rockhard4x4 front aluminum mid width bumper, smittybuilt winch, rockhard4x4 rock sliders and soon i'll add the rockhard aluminum rear bumper once its released with their tailgate reinforcement kit. We will rock 35's for a year or two and then probably do a metalcloak 2.5" lift and upgrade to 37's. Waiting to go 37's to see how all the axles and steering and other components hold up over time instead of jumping right to 37's. The JK's had all kinds of weaknesses when going to just 35's (ball joints, bent axle tubes, outer c's etc).

    Here are a few pics of our JLUR.

    NICE! Good idea on the waiting. Probably doing the same myself. I am researching full skids and going from there.

    Get the metalcloak full skid. I just ran the Rubicon 2 days ago and there were a few new jls with us and they had the new full skid plate system from metalcloak and it was top notch. I would love that system. Also check out rockhard system. I haven't seen it in person yet but it's another option.

    ESS is that stupid Stop/Start feature.
    I don't get it, other than your issue to me it's no bother at all. Do you have an automatic transmission? With the standard transmission it's not a bother at all, as soon as you push the clutch in it starts right up.

    In the middle of putting my winch in now.

    I have the auto and knew about ESS and thought it was stupid but it really is transparent and when in traffic it is pretty smart. Still, for me it is silly and something else to go wrong and did go wrong.

    On top of that I went 18 so I wouldnt have to mess with BSG and it's second battery. Come to find out the 18s have a second battery too.

    Just checked out metalcloak, looks REALLY good. Others look great too including an alum one. I dont plan on wheeling my JL hard but hard enough that I know the skid will get nailed. I cant believe alum would hold up?
