If I was doing it I would paint them impact orange, clear them, then spray some black over the Rokmen logo, then sand off the overspray and clear over the whole piece again. This trick would make the logo stand out in black while the Stryker stayed Orange.

But, that's just how I see things.

Maybe. I am still undecided but I will make a decision this week sometime.

I put one 934 front springs on the jeep this morning and removed the saggy stock springs and 1" rubber puck.

At full bump



And now.



Looks like it is level again. If the spring sag, I'll put the pucks back in. Front ends picked up just at 2+ inches.

And since I have got a lot of PMs asking this, my front bumpstops are stock, rear are 1.75-2" over stock (guess since I have those aev deals back there). If I didn't have the ucf engine skid, I could lower the front bumps and the rear would hit everything if it moved any higher (tub mostly).

Test fitted the strikers





They are well built and line up perfectly with the rokmen corners I have. Only decision made is definitely not aluminum. Sorry Angry.

I say paint them to match the armor.

My personal favorite is all paint matched armor with stainless bolts.

...that's what my plan is for my black jeep, that or satin black, depending on what I decide when I get armor

No paint on the sliders yet....


In different news, I have been timid to wheel without a spare lately plus I have been dealing with some other stuff that is not needed to be mentioned on here.

Anyways, I have been setting aside money for the tires and was about to make a purchase after this last weekend when I found a tow rig for a decent price.

Details (have not drove it yet):

7.3 turbo
5 speed auto - freshly rebuilt tranny (from a good shop)
small leak at the pan from the engine
250k mileage
daily work truck for a granite install company
D70 rear
cleanish interior, power locks and windows
not rust in bed under laying liner
heavy towing bumper
fully welded receiver hitch
5 wheel ball in bed, fully welded in
no body or frame sag
no bad rust below (owner said it was kept inside at night)
overload springs to be barely used
looks like some horrible fiberglassing of the rear passenger fiberglass wide wheel well to the body of the truck (only imperfection besides little scratches that you would expect)
dont know the year
I should be going to drive it today or tomorrow and make an offer if it is good to go.





I think of this as a personal insurance thing (to get home after trail rides) and a way to allow me to beat the piss out of my jeep even more and I am told this is actually does better mileage than my jeep More updates to come if bought. Oh and they only want about what new set of 37s would cost - not sure if this is a great deal or a timebomb....
