It's still got its shine. It just doesn't show it in that picture since it's somewhat dirty and it had been raining. But yeah, there are a bunch more hairline scratches, especially on the hood. That's obviously to be expected.

You should paint the jeep logo white on the sides again.

That's a sticker. And no, it won't be going back on. I'm not a fan of stickers.

I saw someone say that the MT/Rs run large for their size, and the Duratracs run small for their size. I thought KM2's ran to about 34". What are yours imped?

The KM2's run a bit small. They measure just a hair over 33.5" under the weight of the Jeep. They run very well when balanced and do excellent offroad. They wear extremely well. I'm at ~20,000 miles and they are only down to 16/32". New is 20/32". From what I've seen, MTR's run a bit truer to size. 33" MTR's sit more like 32" under weight.

In other news, Rod and I worked on the locker tonight. My electric impact wrench doesn't have enough balls to break loose the ring gear bolts so I've got to wait until tomorrow to bring the carrier over to a buddy's house that has air. Everything up to that point went nice and smooth. I also ordered up a new arm and joint from RK today. They gave me a nice deal for being a return customer.

My 31"s were 29" iirc. At 30lbs in the spare, it was 31" dead on (maybe a tad over).
