Overall a great day! Jeep needs some love now though, it was driving a little weird on the way home, and has some new clunks and rattles

What kind of front fender flares do you have on the TJ in the beginning of the thread? Are those 35" tires?

Original tube fenders were Smittybuilt w/3 inch flare. Current are Genright bolder series.

Yes they are 35s

Why did you get rid of the Smittybilts. Did they rust?

I'll bet the tube fender with a flare gives less clearance than the Gen-right with no flare.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

They did a little, but mostly just where I had hit them on rocks. They weighed about 45+ lbs each, and were wider than I wanted to run. Especially since I was going to be running no flare in the rear.

Exactly this, combined with a ton of weight off the front end.

Interesting, but I kind of like it.

Thanks dude I'm not very creative, so they are nothing special. Hopefully the wife will do some for me after the next trail run. The app is Snapseed if anyone cares

Rails look good. Do you have pics of the inner side so I can see how they mount?

Yeah I will try and grab some tonight. They basically bolt through the holes used to install the corners and have a thick aluminum backing plate for strength. Didnt have to make any extra holes for install so I was pleased.

Went out last night to retourque the beadlocks. 50% of the rock domes had smashed into the bolt heads. Pain in the *** to hammer them each out and get a socket in. This was after two weekends in the rocks, so off they came. I think I like the clean wheels better anyways.



And lastly:

Stretched the rear window on the Rampage top to fit over the cage. My spreader bar was too high, but the top is slowly stretching.



Sorry for the ****ty cell pics
