How did the 285 Duratracs "fit" on OME HD? I know there is room, but did they rub and if so how much? I know you added MLLs before you moved up, but it seemed like that was more for the rake. Thanks.

Sorry fir the late reply. I never owned OME HD's, just the MD. I don't know anyone wielding 285's on an intrinsic MD set up. On-road you'd be ok, but I've stuffed the hell out if this wheel well Offroad, so I'd caution you on that.

Been a while since I've had a chance to work on the WK, that lol Patriot has been keeping me busy. Finally talked myself into ordering the 4XGuard rear sliders last week and installed them this week. They freed up the hitch receiver is a nice feeling. The product is very rugged and pretty heavy. Of course, the D-rings are also installed. Tossed in a couple pics for review. Lemme know your opinions!

AJ - I have always liked your Jeep and you've yet to disappoint with any of your mods. :-)

I think the rear guard and sliders would be more beneficial than the front guard. I've scraped my backside a few times here and there but never felt the front guard would help me.

What's your take?


Oh and btw - had a chance to make it out to SMORR?
Not far from FtLwd. Just sayin...........

Thanks man, it takes a lot for me to pull the trigger in a mod lol. I haven't had a chance to get out there to SMORR yet. Really have been to o busy. The front guard is still useful. You may not not have hit anything yet, but all it takes is one good smack lol. Those front end components need more protection than the rear. There is nothing really significant in the rear other than the fact that it is the rear and is more susceptible to damage from departure angles.

Dude IDK about yours but my 3.7 pulls. No problem with power. Plus it has a nice growl to it. Maybe the previous owner did something idk.
