thanks, but i think I'm going to pass. i decided that 37" spare tire is enough of an auto-dim for the rear view mirror.

soooo some goodies came today in the form of Trucklites and Recons. first off, yes i know i have 2 different refractor lenses on the lights. according to Jason at Rebel offroad ONE of them is Euro-spec and he's doing some digging to find out which one i need to replace. (honestly id like to have eruospec if it infact is)



huge alloy heatsink



huge 4 watt LEDs



smoked Recon LED turn signals




and on another note day before yesterday i ordered my shocks that i'll be using as well.

Front: FOX Racing 2.0 12" Travel Coilover Reservoir, 7/8" shaft, (Black, Hard Chromed)
-Eibach 12" 250LB spring
-Eibach 14" 350LB spring
-50/70 Valving

Rear: FOX Racing 2.0 12" Travel Reservior Shock, 7/8" shaft, (Black, Hard Chromed)
-40/90 Valving

its going to be epic.

and i know, someone is going to come in here saying ORI's *cough* Imped

but i did a lot of research on them and they just simply won't work well for my build. I'm going to continue to use coil springs in the rear for weight capacity and ORI's don't work well unless there is one in every corner. as well as the JK is heavy enough when laden that the ORI's wouldn't be able to keep up with the Jeep on aggressive terrain. its unfortunate because they're badass - but in this instance, coil springs work best.

Awesome. So when will you be done with the military? I cant wait. What drivetrain upgrades are you gonna do to the jk44s to hold up the 37s. I personally think you should be different and skip the 37s and go straight to 38x14.50x17 Kevlars.

the 38s are heeeeellla expensive.

the front JK44 will be bomb proofed with 3" tubes, C gussets, poly joints, ARB and probably RCVs. the rear will be ditched for a 40 spline Rock Jock 60 (or so is the plan right now)

i'll be back from BMT and tech school the first week of June 2012, i'll be done with my active duty stint fall of 2013

You have overseas active duty pay as well? Or you havnt gone yet? And theres another thing they pay too. Dangerous territory pay or something? I havnt looked up the price difference of those two tires so I dunno. For a set of 5 its probably like 600-700 bucks difference right? from the 37s vs. 38s?

just checked

37x12.50x17=$399.99 a tire
38x14.50.17=$489.99 a tire

Thats from quadratec though. Soo worth the extra 400 bucks or so. Especially since ur going rear 60. Hydroassist front?

I havnt gone yet, I'll be stateside though.

There is no point in me doing 38s other than to have a 37.5" tire. It'd be more cost efficient to go to 40s than 38s since they're only 10 dollars a tire more than the 38s. But the front JK44 won't hold up to that. Ontop of that she's still a daily driver. If I gear correctly I can pull 17mpg highway on 37s.

Big tires will come later when I can afford a front rock jock and it's no longer my daily.

Yeah I hear ya. Think about your wife too and the baby and your back though. Maybe stick with 35's until your ready to jump to 40s. Its hella hard with an infant in a rearfacing carseat to get outta a jeep that tall. Britax carseats FTMFW!!!!!

She's nearly out of her rear facing. So it's not an issue getting her in and out. As far as tires go. 37s
