Thanks, no rescues yet, haha. Its an onboard CO2 Air system for inflating your tires or running air tools.

Great pics. I really like what you've done. Now the only thing you need is a bully bar for the front of the Jeep!

Couple questions... How does the roof rack affect the panoramic view from the interior? (I know, it's trivial)

Also, with the tire mounted on back, how does the rear camera and sensor react when backing up? Did you disable the parking assist system?

Wow, that is one tricked out Jeep. Is that the Rocky Road roof rack? What's the wind noise like at highway speeds?

Does that tire carrier only connect to the receiver hitch, or are there other points of contact as well?

Very cool setup. I'm also looking forward to seeing what you do to the front end!

Bully bars are junk! Expensive hollow metal that will crunch under barely any pressure. It wouldnt work with his rig since he actually has some nice upgrades for off road. Quoting the pictures is also annoying. Makes the thread too long.

So has anybody found a way to recalibrate the speedo for the tire size change??? I just added 285/45r22's and the speedo reads almost 3 mph off. 72-73 at 70. Can the dealer change it or is a programmer/downloader needed??

Sounds great! Love the photos you posted earlier. Can I ask? How aggressively have you used these off road? Have you hit the bump stops at speed? I plan to use mine in situations I know will fully compress the suspension from time-to-time, (i.e. driving on sand at high speed). I thought I had better double and triple check before I make my purchase. The prices over here in Australia are pretty steep, they are asking $550 per tire for a BF Goodrich AT in that size!!

thanks man. When the rack is unloaded it doesnt block the view too much, but fully loaded it obviously does.

I have to disable the parking assist. Without the gas cans I can still use the camera, the tire does block some of the view. With the cans, its useless.

Thanks man. Its a Garvin Rack, here is a link to their website. Not much wind noise, but there is some.

The tire carrier just connects only to the hitch, its amazing stable for just having that one point.

Rocky Road is working on a set up for the front, I'm waiting to see what they come up with.

Agreed! I'm waiting to see what Rocky Road comes up with, they are working on a winch set up. There really isnt anything out there right now that I know of for the front of the WK2.

Thanks! That seals the deal- I'm getting 275/65/18s for my stock wheeled non-QL Laredo!

Hey everyone, We should come up with a sticky of tire sizes that have been installed. With the difference in tread pattern and actual outer diameter it would also be a good idea to list the tire manufacturer and model of the tire. Along with the tire size we should list if we have a lift, tire spacers, rim info (backspacing, width, and diameter).

Anyhow, I'm trying to figure out if a a 265/70/17 Guard Dog M/T will fit. Specs are 80 PSI max, 10.5'' wide, 32.25'' diameter. Rim range 7 - 8''. For $125 each they arn't a bad deal at all. Lots of reviews from the trailblazer market. Here's the website. www.treadwright.com

Thread stickied!

I thought I posted in here. I guess not.

I put Nitto Terra Grappler 265-70-17 on MB TKO 17x8.5. Both fit before lift with no rubbing at any point. However, I am unaware if the size of tires would fit with factory offset.

Before lift



After lift
