Glad that worked out but yikes, that's about double the cost of the 15" version.

I said, " so should I just wait until it blows out when I'm going 70 down the highway? Then my insurance co will cover it because my jeep will be wasted." They then said ok its cool, we'll cover it. While inside I got to thinking. Why not swap it/try to swap it, for a Kevlar.. I asked.. The guy said Sure, as long as you cover any possible price differences. Fine. 48.00 for a new roadhazard and -2.00 returned for the price difference. Ok cool. Then I got to thinking. I had a 5th tire in the garage never mounted while waiting to get beadlocks. Can you guys swap my 5th for a kevlar? Still have the sticker on it. Never used. Sure... Cool. Two out of 4 traded.. So, how many more Kevlars do you have? Two... cool. I'll buy em. 850.00 out the door for 2 tires. YIKES.. That's ok. Now I got 3 new tires to sell and I've got WAY more peace of mind knowing I'm sporting a MUCH better tire. Went down to the Clairmont store for the installs. They apparently have been getting a lot of MTR's in if your shopping for them. They are usually VERY hard to source, esp in a 17" rim.

Thanks guys for the links and the pictures. I'm assuming that the coil is on the air output? And that you have the oil mod that routes the oil back into the compressor?

If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

correct. in the pic i didnt have my air filter on the other side. was planning on running the filter to the front of the radiator but decided against it and just plumbing right off the fitting.

Critic this cage design. I sent the picture to a 4x4 shop and they said they could build it for around 950 from scratch out of 1.75 x .120 dom. That seems very reasonable to me and am considering it.

Looks and sounds like a good price about what I would charge- Just make sure it has all the frame-ties ins included. Just finished this up for a buddy.
