Removed stock fog lights and installed new Hella 500 Black Magic.

Will mount OEM fog lights some where underneath for rock lights.

Also relocated Hi-Lift to front bumper.

So since I'm a 6' chub chub I decided to go with the Misch 4x4 "FatBoy" brackets. http://www.misch4x4.com/bigboy_brackets.html

Nice improvement for leg/belly room!

So after I get the seat adjustments done above, I find this.

Driver side axle shaft U joint missing a cap! Last time I went wheeln was October, but I had her out for a hour drive three weeks ago. She's not my DD.

Repairs will be warranty. Question is, could I have axle of diff damage? During that hour drive I didn't hear that clanking noise.

Also, should I drive it to dealer or tow it?

Awesome rig man.

One question- I have your rims, and Im wanting a set of km2's also. Except they're all load E, 10 ply.

I've been looking at the 255/85/16 size, it's the diameter as yours but skinnier.

Does the load E ride ok? Are they crazy heavy? Thanks!

I work on Mopars

I had 255/85/16's and they were not much skinnier than the 285/75R16 with stock backspacing on my moabs. If you like the tall skinny cool but dont do it for clearance issues, its not needed. The 285's look "meaner or beefier" anyway. Good luck on the E rating, I believe that is due to them being used as side by side tires on a dually. Mine rode hard, it was a night and day differance after the install.

Sure wish Jeep would have given us hubs so we didn't have to worry about crap like this. One of my first projects is going to a front end with locking hubs.

And in the photos you have posted your Jeep looks RED!!!!! LOL!

Go with the 285 75 16, I have a little rub on full turn, but its worth it. 305 70 16 u'll def need spacers.
