Just finished going through the build Tom - great pics of some amazing wheeling spots!

So the Tereflex CAs - these are what you're currently running, no? Fixed uppers adj lowers? You like?

I am running the teraflex adjustable uppers and lowers. I like them the jeep rides better and flexes better now

Today I am picking up some 35's off of my neighbor

They are the General Grabber (Red Letters) Mounted on American Racing ATX Slots wheels The tires have been Siped and have maybe 1,500 miles on them at most.
I'll be running the 33's on my YJ when the lift for it comes in the mail. I will possibly also be buying some Napier cutout flares and hood vents for it also today. When I install the 35's I'll post a pic

Nice man. I wanted some grabbers for the xj but they just don't make the size I want. I'll probably go duratracs.

I was going to get some Duratracs but my neighbor offered to sell me his 35's and atx slots wheels for a better price then I could get 33's and wheels so the obvious choice was to buy the Grabbers hes already had them siped also .


Today I ordered Napier Precision flares, and hood vents for the XJ

My flares and vents came in I hope to install them over the next week or so. They are top notch as far as quality

^5 I've heard the Napier brand is pretty sturdy in comparison to what else is out there. Why did I think you already had hood vents on your jeep? Or did you just not like what you had?

I have vents on it but every time I wash or or go wheeling dirt seems to get washed under the 3m tape and they pop off. So I wanted a bolt on style that will cover my existing holes cut in the hood and something that won't let water or snow in.

They held great until late summer when it was over 100 then the glue melted.
