Seriously though, don't take things so personally. I didn't and wouldn't call someone names of personally attack anyone. It's just a little ribbing!

A few weeks ago I created a thread about wanting to upgrade my suspension because of the fact that I couldn't keep my belly off the ground whenever I got off the trail. At a glance it's a frankenlift with Rokmen UCA's, Currie Front/rear track bars, antirocks. Currie braided brake lines. Metalcloak bumpstops. Still not sure about coils and shocks. Again, this is at a glance and is subject to change.

If this is your daily driver, I'd say you are making a mistake eyeballing 37s with that motor. You are going to be so mad at yourself for getting them when you realize you are hanging the tongue out of that thing to get up any highway incline, or even maintain highway speeds even with steep gears. Not to mention, considering that you don't sound like a guy with an endless budget, that 10 mpg isn't going to make you very happy.
I will run 37's with beadlocks for trips. I will be keeping 35's on my 15's for the road since I already spent the money on them. I'm not a guy with an endless budget FYI. I will be running 4.88. I don't think I will have a problem with the 37's since I wheel in 4lo.

Also, please explain how you are at "full flex" including stuff (very important) if you are not touching the bumpstop or coil bound?
See 1st reply. At that stage of the game I didn't understand the concept of full flex being hitting bump stop.

Can't. Already addressed in the 1st reply.

Already a dog. So why not?

Correct. Still looking for grade 8 carriage bolts. Don't really want to go the online route yet.

I'm not above losing my temper. I hope I answered your questions. I like my rig and I'm not finished with it...

So carrying on. I've decided to carry on with the OR-FAB swing away installation and I will be doing it tonight/tomorrow morning. It sucks when I have to bargain for my weekend free time. But I'll still get a good write up for it.

Spyder, thanks for your time today.

More updates to come.

Keep Calm, Chive On

I'd still do at least 5.13 for the 35s. You will be disappointed with spending the money on gears to only go 4.88. Rule to remember with a 3.8 auto is DON'T FEAR THE GEAR!

Ha yes that will do perfectly.

So I installed my OR-FAB rear tire carrier and I must say it was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I used a right angle impact drill and that made the job extremely easy. Or easier since the worse part of the install was aligning the carrier and keeping all if the spacers and washers in place. Its a hell of a write up so I will post it in the JK Tech section. After work I will post a few pics of the final product. I also installed the evo rear d ring mounts.

Sorry about that first pic. I thought I could successfully upload from my phone but that's not the case. So here are pics of the final install to include the rear d-ring mounts. I also sanded, primed, and bedlined the rear to include the sheet metal between the tailgate and rear frame rail. I was telling myself that it was temporary until I found the right rear bumper but I've grown attached. I feel like I should protect the rear corners so MetalCloak Exo corners are in the near future.

So on the way to my house are materials to relocate my rear license plate. I'm not sure what to do next. Might be gears.. Actually should be gears. 4.88 on the way I suppose...

I think I will go with Motive Gear. Any suggestions?
