the tires I have are Nitto trail grappler in a 265/70/17 size.

the lights started with a clear plastic at first. the roads in sc where I am always seem to throw stuff to chip the front end and lights of my vehicles.

now the front of my Trailhawk has a clear paint protection and the lights are now a custom smoked finish by me

the kit was easy to install. I think a few of us had a few issues along the way, but with everyone giving input on how they did it helped.

I only noticed a difference in driving that was very minor. after my alignment was done it was like back to original.

I like driving it better now with my new tires though, seems I don't feel all the bumps as bad now

This is the way it should have come from Jeep. Just like the Rubicon, or Red Rock Edition Wranglers, they were beefed up versions of their counterparts. The Trailhawk is supposed to be that. With this kit and 32" tires, it now has more ground clearance that those special edition versions of Wranglers!

I'm a proud owner of this lift. It is well worth it. Instructions are good and its easy to follow. I had a 4x4 shop owner help me install mine, and he was impressed with the lift. He said it was of very good quality and built to last a long time. The install is not hard, but it will take some time: around 4 hours likely.

I notice a big difference in the look. No difference in driving, other than feeling like you are up in a crow's nest, looking down on others. Realistically, an 1 1/2 does not sound like much of a gain. However, in riding the trails, it DOES make a considerable difference. A couple of obstacles I used to scrap, are now cleared no problem. Your mileage may vary, but I love this lift!

I just used black paint at a buddy's shop.
then buffed them to the darkness I wanted, then clear coat over that.
