So far I really like em. Have done well everywhere I've been so far, even with this snow, although there weren't a ton of big ledges to climb at this last run out, more flat, rocky sections.

I think I do need to play with the on road air pressure a bit, as my drive to the trail ride I was getting a bit of a shimmy at 55ish, but nothing that bad, but I pretty positive that its tire related, as everything else is dialed in. Other than that, I haven't put a ton of mileage on them since I don't daily drive it.

Got the Smittybilt rear flares in today and slapped them on, no pics cause it's too dark out now, but I think I like them. Either way they will save me from a potential 'fix it' ticket...

Just need to trim the mounting flange on them a bit to match the corners that I trimmed to clear the 35's.

Our Jeeps are going to look very similar...and every time I see pics to yours it makes me want more stuff done on my Jeep ASAP.

If you are having trouble with the wheels and you think it might be a balance issue, check into Dynabeads. I put them in my old 33's and they are in my new 35's and since i put them in i have never had a problem again. I have a few bags laying around if you are interested.

I know, they will be very similar, which is cool, looking forward to seeing your build move along. We will have to wheel them together sometime as you're not far away.

As for the Dynabeads, I tried them a while back in my 33's before I put them on the Jeep. I felt as if they worked sometimes, but then not, depending on how I took off, like around a corner or something, idk. But the ride isn't bad, seems to smooth out once at highway speed and I'm comfortable going 70ish.

Sounds like a plan if I ever get it back together

I used a pint glass of airsoft pellets this time around and have 0 complants

Pics of the Smitty rear flares. Still getting used to them after being flareless for the last 6 months.

Hmm. Well I definitely don't hate it. How wide are they? Did you move them up at all or they in stock location?

I like this you making mods first...then I can see what mine looks like!

Looks awesome bud! I'd wheel it!

Haha, I have the same feeling and its def growing on me. They are 3", haven't measured exact, but thats what Smitty says. Also they are just mounted in the stock location. I like how they match the height of the hilines well.

You rig will look great as well! Get them fenders on!

Thanks! It does flow well, seems as if the widths are all the same.

Ok, awesome, so that brings me to my next point/question. Are your Rokmens NOT 4" wide? Mine are, but it appears your stuff matches really really well.

I know, thats whats throwing me off... Everything seems to line up near perfect. But the Smitty flares barley seem like 3". I haven't measured any of it yet, but could today, as I am curious.
