Lifted about 2" on King Springs with Primitive Rally strut top spacers. Tires are 225/70r16 Yokohama Geolandar AT/S on the stock 16" steelies.

This pic of from before I lowered the rear subframe to center the wheels, and take out some of the positive camber. Lowered it with washers at first, now a Primitive Rally solid billet aluminum spacer block and longer 10.9 bolts holds it in place.

Fairly stout light bar from Primitive Rally with Lightforce Striker 170 lights:

The full sized Yoko spare used to ride on the roof basket... been deflated and stuffed in the wheel well along with recovery gear:

Also, Primitive Rally skidplates under the engine, tranny, and rear diff (not on in this pic).

The winch is in a 2" receiver cradle. So I can stick it on the back of the car for now... need to fab up a 2" receiver mount for the front so I can put it there. I made a 12v 175A fused 4 gauge cable with a quick disconnect that comes out the front, and is zip tied to the light-bar. I also made a 20' extension cable with quick disconnects, I drape it over the roof to power the winch in back when needed. I also made jumper cables on quick disconnects... I can jump a car without opening my hood. Or connect my winch to another car's battery, so it's completely portable now.

Video of the first test, dumpster was full:
