Got my tires mounted tonight!! Previous was 32x11.5 Goodyear MTRs and now are 33x12.5 Interco Trxus (A true 33). I instantly regret not getting 35's though, but nothing will really hold me back on the trails. Also, I'm waiting for rock rings to get cut for me and then weld them to my new rims with 4" backspace. these currently have 4.75" backspace.

Got my balljoints pressed in, knuckles and tie rod bolted up. Diff should be installed this weekend while it is getting the rear diff regeared by a buddy.

For as much as I've read this thread I'm surprised I never commented on it.

You should do an engine cage.

When the Jeep becomes a drive to trail only, it will get a full ego cage. As of now, it is a daily driver

Got my front diff swapped in this weekend and the rear diff regeared. What a difference with the 1 ton steering and new front end parts!!

Finally got the Jeep back on the rocks this weekend! After all the work I've done to it. Performed great, but I need to push my front axle forward about 1.5"
