They're great. I only needed 4wd to get out of the parking spot. They dig in and grab very nicely. The only problem, which isn't specifically Duratrac related, is that they're 12.5" wide. I'm sure if I had 10.5" wide tires I'd have more grip. They're just so fat that they pack down the snow instead of cutting through it. Overall I'm very impressed though.

Mirrors should be here Thursday. I am pretty sure I will be going home this weekend so I'll be able to install them. Shouldn't take more than a half hour as long as the old ones come off easily.

Would anyone be interested in a write-up? I realize replacing mirrors isn't the most technical modification, but if anyone would like to see one I'd be glad to post one in TJ tech. It'll also be a review of the Quadratec replacement mirrors.

I think they look much better than the old ones. Took them for a drive and they don't vibrate at all. I'm very happy.

I had those same mirrors on mine until I traded my doors last week. I was happy with them.

Putting this here so I can refer back to it easily.

Still on the DD to-do list:

-Install rear uppers
-buy front lowers
-new ZJ tierod and drag link
-new SS
-BM pads, centric rotors and calipers (possibly 15" BBK)
-road force balance the wheels and tires and rotate
-TruckLite's
-OR small led bar on bumper to replace fogs
-PRP DD seats

May be forgetting something. Over summer, the first thing ill be knocking out is the steering. Then arms. Then brakes if funds allow.

I found a seller on eBay that has the trucklites for $370. I'll have to see if I can get the name for you.

Is that all I would need? I literally know nothing about lights so I don't know if I need harnesses or any of that jazz...
