Just another CO WJ

Well I just went four-wheeling in Telluride, CO and had an awesome time. This past Wednesday, our last day, we did the infamous Black Bear pass in '10 JK. When we got back to the hotel after conquering the trail, to my great surprise, we found all the Jeep Concepts sitting in the parking lot. There was the AEV JK, Mighty FC, JK-8, and the new Compass which looks more like a rally car than the compass. Anyways we decide to head to town and get drinks and such and ended up spending the entire night with the directors of the programs. It was an awesome experience.

But that all said and done and finally back home I have the time to put the BB on my WJ. So this is my build thread right now my WJ is pretty much stock other than a touchscreen in dash DVD player and an after market alarm, but by the end of the weekend it will have a KOLAK BB and either 245/75r16s or 265/70r16s.

So I finished the lift yesterday. All in all it took me 5 hours to complete and would've taken less had I knew couple things. I only had to use a coil compressor on the front passenger side (as many have said). The rest you can just lean, or use a jack on the opposite side, to get the needed clearance. So after looking at 245/75r16s next to the 265/70r16 I decided I would go with the 265/70s. So far, with just city driving, I have had no rubbing issues. However when I disconnect the sway bar I'm sure that may change and I'll need to cut an inch or two out of the front bumper.

I was torn between the Hankook Dynapro ATM and the Falken Rocky Mountain. However, after learning about the separated treadblock in the Hankook that was my choice due to its ability to clear mud and snow. I'll throw up some pictures in the next day or two.
