Ry and his brother Matt from Pennsylvania get the distinction of being the first JK’s featured in the Readers Jeeps section. Ry and Matt’s JK Unlimiteds are both X models in Red Rock Crystal paint with soft tops. Ry’s Jeep has a 6 speed and Matt’s is automatic. Matt’s Jeep has 4.10’s with a trac-loc.
Ry’s JK has a custom lift. From Ry, “We started with 4″ WJ coils and cut them to the height we wanted. Then we heated up the fronts and expanded the bottom of the springs to fit over the new perch.

Matt’s Jeep has a 3/4″ spacer lift and wears 285/75/16s Maxxis Big Horns.
Below are some pictures of Ry and Matt using their Jeeps like one is supposed to. See the trail carnage images below.
