Yeah, I'm pretty sure they are off a rubicon. His name on here is shinobi. His build is pretty awesome.

And thanks, I love the stance of the 35s, I just need to cut more to make them stuff better. And the 37s are going to be a task to get them up in the fender well.

They're probably from a JK Rubi. Rubi axles...Rubi wheels.

My buddy has a set of 39.5 Iroks, after seeing atlas flex his jeep, it kinda makes me want 40s. Maybe a 37 street tire? hahah.

I used the parts washer at work to clean the outer rings and bolts with washers. Cleaned them up nice. And the hotsy to steam clean the rims. Look newer. And I'm thinking of a color to paint the outer rings, diff covers, and possibly links.

Is that Folsom lake? I need to get my jeep out. Maybe a snow wheeling trip in the near future.

You should check out norcaljeepers.co if you haven't already. They are planning a couple trips coming up.

No, that's not folsom. Its a little trail about 5 minutes from my house in grass valley. Right where the picture was taken, my buddy backed up in to a tree, leaving a nice dent in his tail gate. Luckily didnt break glass

I'll check the site out. Trips are hard to plan cuz I only have Sunday and wednesday off. And its hard to get time off. Maybe ill convince my boss to come wheeling too in his 2 door jk.

Haha. Convince him....i usually only have one day off from friday to sunday so its hard for me to plan too. Usually need to request days 3 weeks to a month in advance. BTW I still need to get one of these Sunday's off so I can get rid of the saggy *** on my jeep and raise the tank.
