Have you taken your lift/tire combo wheeling yet? If so, how do you like it so far? Wish you went higher?

Yup, went wheeling twice in the fall just before winter. Both times it performed flawlessly. I only bottomed out on my frame once, and that was on a single rock that stuck up pretty far. I rubbed a tiny bit on the left rear causing the corner to be bent a little, but that is on an untrimmed fender opening and no bumpstops.

I am open/open and never got stuck on either trip as well.

Very happy with the stance. Off camber situations I felt just fine, solid as a rock. One wrangler in our group was on ~8" and 36" TSLs nearly went head over heels on a rock climb where I just kinda slid sideways.

I'm going to try and keep the height as is or maybe a smidge higher to eventually get to 40's on 1 tons.

Mounted up my rear TJ flares ... Finally got pulled over for being flareless in central MA (6 months of driving without them heh) Hopefully that'll keep the fuzz of my tail for now. I still need to make and/or buy front flat fenders to make that legal, as I cut the hell out of them going flat. No where to mount the front TJ flares.

you did half the cutting for front tube fenders. get something bent up so you can run a 3" flare front tube fender. Just my opinion

Sweet. I'm going to take the hardtop off for my wheeling trip. Should be sunny and 80+ degrees.

Awesome build. What the distance from the ground to the bottom on the rocker panel?

25" to the rocker panel.

Doing a once-over of the Jeep, poking, prodding, checking things out today. Found 2 more holes in the tub. Found a 6" long hole of rust in the frame between the fuel filter mount and the frame side mount (Rear left leaf spring). Another smaller hole above the right rear shock mount, and the mount itself is starting to rust off.

Not sure what I'm gonna do. So much rust on this thing...

The usual : throw all the money you had on the side at it and fix it. no but seriously, if you have good welding skills, I'd try to fix it, would be a waste to get rid of it.....
