I have not decided yet. I am looking at mounting it on the passenger side right near the tailgate similar to this

As for the 35s I am sure those will come in due time, but for at least the next year this is going to be a daily driver so I am going to keep it smaller. Mainly to keep myself out of trouble.

That has already started, the gas cap cover is in my garage right now with a coat of flat black drying as we speak. I am hoping to flush the tail lights soon aswell

Will be a great build to follow and as long as you do it eventually I am happy if you go with 33s now but you better move up to 35s in 1 year +1 day

Like the look of the mount, looks clean. Much better with the lights gaurds gone and black gas cap. So what lift are you going with?

Well, funny you ask. The original plan was the OME lift and 33s. However I just was fit in to a really exclusive tattoo artist and I need to divert my money to that.

New plan is a BB, new battery, winch mount, possibly a few other things.

Once the current tires run out I will look into another lift and some bigger tires

Ahh yes , tattoos just as addictive as the Jeep!! So thinking the BB now, who do you think you will end up going with?

Torx Bolts, yeah, that was a GREAT idea, Thanks

Very true, I have been trying to get a booking with this particular artist for over a year, so I had to jump at the chance to get some work done.

I am still deciding on what particular BB to go with, but I plan on ordering up a winch plate and an optima battery in the next few days to get things started on the winch mounting.
