On the road they are awesome, they are louder then my KM2's but not by much. On wet roads and snow covered roads they blow away the KM2's but the grabbers are also sipped. As for off road I have not taken then off road on my xj but when they were on my neighbors for a month or two before I bought them from him When he found his unibody was torn in several places. We wheeled it and the were great in the desert terrain and stuck like glue to rocks.

Here's some pics of the XJ's recent outing, I really love the grabbers they hook up so much better then the KM2's, I did suffer some damage bumping the *** up a ledge the rear pivoted to the left the rock slider smashed into a boulder on the side of the jeep breaking off a chunk that rolled up the door and dented the rear door.

Dont be alarmed I was Wheeling on a BLM trail this was the first weekend it was open for the season so the water was all run off coming down the mountain I was not in a stream

Love the rig man.. Wondering if this is still with the 3.5 with 33s and how much bump stopping did you do/have. I'm looking to run the same size lift with 33x10.5 km2s and not sure how much bump stopping I need to do.

Thanks

Those pics are with the 35's which are now on my YJ. The 33's are back on the XJ until I can regear due to tranny temps
