Was your check engine light on before you installed the sensors? Mine doesn't have any check engine lights on, but it is doing what you described in your first post. That clunk drives me nuts!

Took me a while but keeping my promise of a photoshoot of my baby in it's current form. Freshly waxed and detailed.

- Yes the tires are big.
- Yes they rub at full lock.
- Yes the rims stick out.
- YES I LOVE IT!

Would love to hear what you think, guys.

Looking Good! How are you liking the lift so far? It's great isn't it!

So what size tire are you running exactly? Your sig says 33", but is it a 285/70, 33x12.5, or something else? Just curious.

See How It Was Made

Your Jeep looks tough! I hope you put those bump stops in before you flex that rear end because those tires are going to chew up your rear fender. I love the look though!

Looks Awesome..... I'm jealous, wish mine looked that clean!

Good job man!

What kind of wheels are those again? Backspacing and all?

You gotta get that thing off the ground a little more.

It would look super-tight with a little more height!

Thanks Omelet. The OME lift is amazing. I couldn't have made a better decision. I'm also delighted with the HD ride. I know I would be hating the MD's floatiness already had I gone with that option.

Yup, my tire size is 285/70 (R17 of course) but from what I've read these tires are closer to 33.5" BTW, how r u liking the Trail Grapplers? I was also considering those but I ended up with the Destin's due to $$ issues.

RedZJ: The ride is amazing. I run them @ 36 and I love how the tires eat all but the largest pot holes I encounter. I've hard cornered with these meats and ABS kicks in 50% of times just for a brief moment even with ESP off, but hey! it's a small price to pay.

Lagonwagon: Too little too late brother! already took her wheeling and my rear passenger tire eat up the fender well lip pretty badly. Now I'm in the process of doing the "Omelet's Lip Roll (TM)" and adding the bumpstops. I'm also gonna have to get a new tire since the bare metal tore like 5 outside lugs right off. *sigh* Live and learn, right?

Thanks WK-916, they're Procomp 7031 wheels, 17x9, 4.75" BS -6mm Offset 5x5 lug pattern.

DustinInDFW: Agree! That's why I'm keeping a close eye on Omelet's modded OME lift to clear an additional inch or save for the SL.

33.5" from a 285/70!!! That is more than just a little difference! What do they measure by ruler? (from the ground to the top of the tire) That is nice if you are getting that much tire.

The Grapplers are Amazing! The best tire I have ever used. Road noise is very low, on road ride is supper nice, and offroad traction is Phenomenal! I don't know if I will ever get anything else.

Its raining right now and my parking space is open to the elements so please excuse me if I wait till tomorrow to post measurements. I might get the Trail G's when I wear out my destinations or if they keep losing lugs faster than me losing my patience. Thanks for the feedback!

Hey SmallsWK hope that's a good thing!!
