Nice lift. How do you like the Teraflex?

I've gone through the JK forum tirelessly (as well as many other forums). Out of the 28,500 + threads, it would have been helpful if you would have posted the link to the 'one' you're referring to

On the road it's been great, I haven't had a chance yet to go off-road yet. Hopefully this coming weekend I'll have more time.

Found out the other day that I needed exhaust spacers with my Teraflex lift. Received them yesterday along with a set of Mopar slush mats for the front and rear.

Placed the order yesterday for the Rampage Recovery Bumper w/ Stinger which should be here Friday and I ordered the Rugged Ridge 8,500 lb. winch w a recovery gear kit.

While I was at it I also ordered a Rola cargo carrier w/ light kit.

Looks like all of it will be in by Friday so I'll have a fun weekend setting it all up.

Next on my list is tires but I just can't decide on what I want or even the size

I'll post pics as I get them in and of course once installed

My Rugged Ridge winch arrived today along with the Rugged Ridge Recovery Gear Kit

Seeing that it was shipped 2nd day air and for as heavy as it is I was surprised that the packaging was in great shape and no issues with the contents.






Tomorrow my bumper is coming in, 1 day earlier than scheduled too.

On Thursday my Rola Carrier and my bumper came in

Had to assemble the carrier in order to get the bumper home





That evening I changed out the bumpers and almost had the winch mounted but the bumper didn't come with any bolts for the winch plate??

Here's a pic the next morning of the new Rampage bumper



I got the winch mounted last night and went out and re-spooled the line this morning


I also bolted on the Rugged Ridge Hi-Jack tailgate mount


Next on my list is to install my exhaust spacers and trim the pinch seam. Hopefully I'll get those done tomorrow.

Oh yeah, almost forgot (actually can't stop day dreaming about them) I ordered my new tires this morning and they'll be in first thing Monday. After looking at several different ones I decided on 35x12.50r17 Cooper Discoverer STT's on my stock rims. I got a GREAT deal locally on the tires and I'll just upgrade the rims once I knock down my mod list a little bit more.

Lookin good! And you will love the Coopers, only issue I ever had with them is they are very soft and wear a little more quickly than most other tires, but other than that they can easily conquer anything you throw at them!

Thanks! And very soft = great mud traction here in Florida, although it's a DD it's gonna see more asphalt then muck.

Well, she's now ready for the new rubber.

I installed the exhaust spacers which I must say, I AM VERY DISAPOINTED WITH TERAFLEX!!!!! One spacer is longer than the other which they pointed out in the instructions very clearly but when I got them in place and started tighting the bolts I ran out of threads on the shorter spacer way before it was tight. Apparently there should have been 2 different sizes in bolts. So, I have to make a run to the parts store for 2 shorter bolts

I also took the sawzall to the pinch seams. It took longer to get the sawzall out then it did to cut them off, thankfully because I think I held my breath the entire time Mixed up some JB Weld and once that dries I'll hit it with a little black rustoleum spray paint.

New rubbers installed today and tried out. I flexed it pretty good and didn't have any rubbing. It's close in a few spots but didn't touch. I'll get a before and after comparison photo tomorrow and post it up later. Here's one from this afternoon.

Installing the MBRP spare tire relocate bracket and MBRP bracket reinforcing kit when I get home so I can get my monster spare out of the back and back on the tail gate where it belongs. Also ordered the Daystar bump stops.

Here's a couple of pics of the finished job. I also relocated my brake light above the tire. I am going to move it down a little closer to the top of the tire since it blocks too much of the remaining rear view.
