They are not in yet, I just placed them on the hood to see where they looked good. Since it is raining I can't do my yard work so I may install them tomorrow

Did some wheeling today here's the pics From my phone I'll post more later tonight when I upload them from my camera
I really love the sidewall flex of my KM2. The other jeeps that were pictured were 311lj's and hardcorexj's


I also received some teraflex upper control arms from hardcorexj for the Xj I need to replace the frame end bushings then they will be installed. Thanks again Derrick

sick brother ...

I'm still not a huge hood vent fan in the end, even though they look great and get rid of a lot of heat, but I just hate getting my sensors more wet than they have to be.

Have you actually had problems with your sensors getting wet?

No .. I don't have vents though ... most people say they have good luck but it just seems that it would expose them to so much water and dirt. Tom95YJ will have to let us know how it goes.. I see his rig in the snow a lot .. but I think he keeps his xj in the garage soooo .. but they look sweet

I went with these vents so they won't allow water or snow to drip onto my sensors, the mesh on he vent sits about an inch behind the opening and I cut about. 1/2 behind the mesh so there is a decent overhang snow and water will not be a problem for these. I do plan on getting some black window weld (windshield gasket glue ) and going around the seams where they meet the good from the underside to make sure they don't allow water to seep in from the sides or front and back.

Motorcharge I did have a good time yesterday but my Xj disappointed me on one obstical. That hardcore Xj made it up with his locker off and I was not able to make it up. And he's buddy made it further up then me with open diffs. I am not sure of its causes they are both longarm and have better travel up front cause my front would push and stay planted then my rear would walk over. Or if I just had a bad line.

Looks like good fun. I should be getting red dust/mud on my rig by mid-week.
Did they tear-up any more rock down there ? I noticed the first set of obstacles is all but gone on the main road .
