Dude, me and you might be twins. Im supposively getting my flares soon, its been maybe a month and a half since i ordered, maybe longer. So keep in mind that you will have to wait a looong time. I want iroks too, but 36" tires is pushing it for a dd. I was aiming for 35" maxxis, or km2's

The jeep isn't my DD anymore. I drive my Toyota. We are looking for a STI for my girlfriend and that will really relive the jeep from duty.

Plan for the jeep is to get a waggy 44 up front and a 9in in the back. And run Iroks. A 35in KM2 would be my second choice or a Goodyear Kevlar. I am getting ready for a big camp run next year. I have found a trail system that runs from Roseberg Or, all the way into Cali. It takes like 4 days to do the whole thing. I would take my other jeep but it has to be street legal as there are some road sections.

Hooah! Your going to love them. Id say invest in some new shocks, and then some coil retainers.

Ready for snow wheeling this season? And snowboarding?

What is the Trail system, sounds like fun. I want to do something like that next summer.

Can you post some pics of the inside of your front fender wells? They look super clean, Im just wondering what you did, inside? Pounding the seams, more cutting inside, and what about the plastic inner well?

I don't have any photos of the inside. I can take some when I get home. Plastic inner fender is gone. The large lip on the back of the inner fender has been relief cut several times and beat flat. Gained about 2in more clearance by beating it down. After all that was done just painted it all black

Looks killer dude, you thinking of any limiting straps? If you do ill come with you and we can both flex out and measure, I still need to get some.

Isnt it nice seeing the wheel drop below the rocker?
