I read that the Kumhos like to wear out really quickly, and the KM2s are in the same price range. My friend recommended KM2s so I read some reviews and saw they were a really good tire.

Gears, probably staying at 4.10's. Axles? Run them til they break, then upgrade. 8.8 or a 44 in the future.

You'll be very happy with the KM2's.

I found a great way to get rid of rust: Cut off the panels that are rusty! lol.

Did my own version of flat fenders with the stock fenders tonight at a friends house. I'll grab some pictures in the morning.

i just caught up to your thread and i gotta say it's comin along great. i have a question about the daystar 1" kit. did it come with full length sleeves or does it require the old ones to be added? i just ordered the kid from 4wd and couldn't find anywhere that stated one way or the other. i know most kits want you to reuse them however i am starting from scratch and don't have any

Jeeps looking good. That hand throttle is sweet. I could really use one of those on hill climbs and situations where I need to have my foot on the brake or impending doom will follow.

The sleeves included in the kit are only to extend the stock ones. When you install the kit, you only have to reuse one thing from the stock mounts, and thats the mushroom shaped steel sleeve on top.

It really is nice for starting on hills and such. If I tighten up the friction screw, I have cruise control on the highway !

Great build man!, I just ordered a set of these front turn signal but I'm wondering what fixed it, was it the resistor you added or the combined resistance with the blazer unit?
