Rear is KOR stealth tire carrier for sure. I saw it in person today on Kevins Jeep and it's amazing. I'm gunna order that first because I still can't decide on the front between the Iceland and ARB. Iceland's fender flares look alot better in person too.

Well it cost about $1400 after everything was said and done, maybe that will make you like your short arms.

Yeah my friend has some iceland flares, and they do provide alot more clearance for his tires. He can successfully fully flex out his 6.5" lift with 35s and turning. But they look a little too bulky for me. They are also a huge pain to get on from what he told me.

Bryant said they were a PITA to install also.

Haha, thanks man.



So I think I'm getting some front vibration. Around 45 mph I get a pretty loud and annoying noise that sounds like it's coming from the front driveshaft. When I got home I took a look at the pinnion angle and it seems to be off a little.

Could be but there was no problem until I put the Clayton's on. I think I just need to correct the pinion angle.

Replaced the track bar.

Here is the damage to the old one.

It was wearing in 5 spots, 2 horizontal and 3 vertical.


Almost 1/3 of the way through.


Some powder coat was coming off too.

Went to Crown King today, left at 6am and didn't get home till 8:35pm.

Couple pictures.





YJ almost flopped, the passenger front tire is way in the air.



More to come just waiting on the upload.

Got a little damage on my passenger rocker, lower control arm, and cat, no big deal though. I'll take some pictures of the damage tomorrow.
