Sounds like a fantastic list of mods for this year Danno! The only things I would change / add (if it were me) would be to throw some genright or rokmen fenders up on that list, aluminum rear corners, and change 35" KM2's to 35" Pitbull rockers!

Funny you should mention that. Rokmen HiLines are slated for early 2013 installation.

Not a fan of the Pitbull's for my DD rig. Nor of the price tag on them. If it was a dedicated trail rig where I knew the tread would last longer than a year. Then I'd be all over them.

A few things sir, 1. Genright fenders bring the suck. 2. There is nothing wrong with pitbulls, and I'd put them up against your km2's any day of the week. I may be deaf by the time our wager is over, but I'll have enjoyed the hell out of getting that way. There's no replacement for traction my friend. And km2's just ain't got it. 3. Mine lasted well over a year and are still being driven on in TN I believe.

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

IndyORV- Dick and fart jokes, titties, throttle, flops, beer, tater balls, and good times.

I'd hold out as long as possible for the MTRks when the time comes. As someone who has run both (35s) km2s bring the suck comparatively. There is NOT a better tire out there for double duty.

I'm assuming that james does not like genright fenders lol James only likes custom fabricated fenders since he's cool like that

And x2 with Gribbs, I absolutely love my MTRKs for both daily driving and tearing it up.

lol! that's one of the main reasons not to go with the pitbull's. I don't want to wear ear plugs driving to work everyday. I hear the traction is kickass with them, & when the day comes, will be one of the top I will look at. The one year thing was just an exageration. Like how I tend to think some things are bigger than what they really are.

I love the look of the Genrights, how the flare follows the taper of the hood. The Rokmen's do this too, but for $150 less, & include complete inner fenders. Plus Rokmen just kicks ***.

That's the plan. Just not sure how long the KM2's will last driving 25,000 or more a year. They should last another 5 or 6 months. I need my '99 neon back.

I too love the genright Fenders and especially because they come in aluminum. Very pricey thats for sure. I wish Rokmen made a non-highline version of their front fenders.

The Spider Web Shade is awesome in the summer! Really cuts down on wind noise at freeway speeds!

TNT Rear crossmember

You have to grind off the stock crossmember & weld this one on in it's place. I added the receiver because I still need to tow a small trailer with mine.

If you don't want to go through the hassel of grinding & welding. Rokmen makes one similar.

you say it cuts down on wind noise, but does it also cut down on the amount of wind in the back seat? that's what I'm mainly concerned with. I think most of the air goes over the windshield & curls back down behind the seats. Mainly tell from my daughter's hair always blowing forward in her face.

Wish I could tell you. Never been in the back seat while someone else was driving. I would have to assume that it must help some. I don't roll with a back seat most of the time and run the Spider with a duster and windjammer combo.

So thinking ahead for doing the flat skid. Realestate is of a premium under the tub with the 42RLE & no body lift. I was planning on using the LoPro mount to help out, but wondering if a custom crossmember would gain me anything over using the LoPro. Without crawling under the Jeep I can see it gaining me maybe 1/2" if I custom made the crossmember & new tranny mount into one. Mounting it directly to the Trnasfer case/Tranny & moving the isloators to the frame rail like Blaine did on Garza's. This would eliminate one of the plates off the LoPro & the isolator pad on the LoPro. ~1/2" I assume.

Anyone have any pics of ones they've done or seen?
