The color looks like a close match to the wheel color. Glad to see this rig coming along. Looking good.

Are these narrow or standard? Steel or aluminum? Are those 35s or 37s?

Well got to test everything out at the Cliffs Jeep Thing event, 2 days of wheeling and camping. Had blast but did not take a lot of photos. Here's a few.

An update to this question:

I noticed while cleaning it that I had some damage to the ACE rails. We were at the Badlands a few weeks ago, I slipped off a rock ledge I was trying to climb and hit very hard. Hard enough that I got out and inspected the skids and front suspension expecting to find some damage. I didn't look closely at the rock rails.

Turns out I dented the rail but cannot see any damage to the stock Rubi rails. So for the price I think they did a great job.

Yeah after spraying it all down the mud built up at the end of my driveway, about 3ft by 3ft, 2" deep. There was a lot in the skid plates and bumpers. I had to use a snow shovel to scrape it all up.

Thanks for this update. Still up in the air with what I want to do.

Awesome! That's one hell of a mud hole you're playing in there. I'm sure clean up took some time...

Did I miss the part of your build where you removed the carpet and lined the tub or is that just the black paint? I thought it looks textured but maybe not.

Thanks, No you didn't miss it, it's just black paint and the sound deadening stuff they put in small patches. But while I had the rug out lining it did cross my mind.

I used Monstaliner on my '99 TJ. It was a great product. The prep work was more than I would ever want to do again.

We should have a Raptor liner party ! I have had the carpet out for awhile now and have been putting off the lining process for too long. I wonder if it could be applied over Lizard skin to keep some of the heat away from the cabin?

Truth be told that's why I've not gotten serious about doing it to my LJ yet.

That would be interesting, when I had the carpet out of my LJ the floor / driveline hump on the passenger side gets hot enough to hurt bare feet.
