Yeah those suckers are huge - if you ever get bored, time a few revolutions of the blades and then calculate how fast the tip of the blade is actually moving.

They look slow, but those things are cruising!

When they mess up all hell breaks loose too. I think there are some videos on youtube of them snapping.

No lie. I've driven next to them on I-65. They are massive. I always speed up to get around them cause I feel nervous driving near them.

Thanks. I didn't think about counting the revs, but you can definitely hear the blades cruising through the air.

They're in the backseat. I'm a tad paranoid when I park so close to multiple frats and sometimes leave my Jeep for almost 2 weeks. I put them on whenever I take a drive at night. Only takes like 5 minutes.

Yea, those videos are cool. The tips of the blades just disintegrate and its just a domino effect of destruction after that.

I am going to be ordering the same lift you have right now in the next couple weeks. Do you think I could run 265 75 r16 tires or just go 265 70 r16.

You could probably stuff 265 75s in there alright with the right bump stops. Only thing I would worry about is the tires being to wide and getting really close to rubbing the rear shocks since you're on stock wheels.

Well, I made a trip out to Badlands on Saturday. Had a pretty good day. Nothing broke that I can tell as of right now. Got to try out the winch for the first time...worked awesome. Had a guy in a JK tell me my dub was gorgeous with the bumpers and what-not. Also had some redneck ask me if my LF240s were bright.

Got some pictures and a video.















Don't worry, there is barely any tension on the line...



This thing was pretty cool...



I kind of fail at the end. I'm trying not to use 4WD because of the different gear ratios. If I would have had bigger tires, I would have been fine. You can tell where I was dragging my diff in the middle.

Probably 90%. It was really dry, so 2WD did alright for the majority of the time. I only really used 4WD when I needed to get pulled up/over something. The locker does wonders.

Yea, I need that $$$ first!

Been applying to quite a few jobs lately, so hoping to hear back from someone soon. Fingers crossed.
