white letters out on the tires automatically means that you have lost 5 inches of articulation.

If your gonna have white lettering I would recommend the white sidewalls to accent the lettering.. thats what I do.
Enjoy your new ride..Does it sit level?

got the springs and shocks from rovers north. $600.. it rides nice. a little bounce due to the increased tire size...takes the bumps great. I am concerned about abs/brake line length....I think they are ok, but plan on extended length in the future

White lettering on a Rover is like walking around with you pants pulled up under your armpits!

Nice looking lift though.

I knew I was wearing my pants too high! My wife was supposed to tell me these things. Really whatever one likes is fine. Fashions come and go. I've always prided myself as being as unfashionable as possible.

No, no, no you are wrong; white letters only drop three inches of articulation, it does, however, eat up 25 Ft/Lb of torque.
