Awesome bro! That is exciting and shouldn't be too hard to pull off.

Haha, it's not like imethe first guy to build one! I'm sure I will come back in 6-9 months and be amazed at what everyone has done while I've been gone.

Yes because CO2 turns to a liquid when it's compressed, the valve need to be up top where only the gas CO2 is. Also known as standing the tank up right.

Thanks bud! I'm excited to finally have a longer set. I have been wanting these with the longer coils for a year now, basically ever since I installed the SL. You are going to love them! I haven't had a chance to play with the adjust yet, but I plan to when I get back next week. I need to do a few things and then hit the trail again and see how everything works together.

I have ordered them from all over. I've bought some off ebay, amazon, and other sites. They aren't hard to find, its just finding the one you need for a good price.

Just stalked a few pages of your build thread..

that black jeep you went wheeling convinced me to order the pintlers before they're gone.

Also, I think our jeeps' eyes are similar.

I asked in the "specialized" section but got no good answer.

Will 315/70r17's fit 17'' Moabs?

Im more worried about the with of the tire compared to the wheel.

Treadwright says they will fit a 8.5-10in wheel.
Moabs are 7.5in wide...

I see you got your 35's on with no issues on your Moabs...
But I just want to make sure Ill be good.

It's just the WK pintlers that won't be made anymore, the JK ones will still be available. The only difference being the backspacing.

You must be thinking of my brother's headlamps (lilomelet) he painted the outside of the '05-'07 halogen lamps like you did. With mine I opened up the '08-'10 HID lamps and painted the inside. Looks good though!

Yep that size will work. A wider wheel is ideal, but they will be fine.

Any tips for psi? Off road (mud and ruts) and then on road use?

Well personally I use the chalk test. You can read about different methods here:

This is a great link! I've been wondering how best to inflate my tires. The Chrysler recommended pressure was 36, with bigger tires I just added a few pounds and am running them at 40 cold. One question though. I assume it matters that I have the 10 ply version vs the 4 ply and my max PSI is 80! vs 35 for the 4 plys. any thoughts? I guess I'll have to take a day off, buy a bucket of chalk and let the science project begin.

I couldn't imagine just inflating mine to their max 80 PSI. I'd be afraid they'd blow up

They won't blow up, but it would be a very stiff ride

Haha, ya they won't blow up! I will usually run 40psi in my "E" tires. It all depends on the tire and the amount of weight you have on each tire though. If you are towing then you will probably want more pressure then what you would normaly have in there for DD.

Well after running without my front inner fender liners I finally decided to put some in! I bought a set of aftermarket ones off eBay for $60 shipped. Now that my pinch welds are flattened and pushed in to clear 35s while wheeling, I needed to keep that area as flat and slick as possible. I also wanted to use different hardware then what I was using before. So I started collecting some supplies.

I bought these at Lowes to use in place of all the pop rivets and to suck the liner tight against the pinch weld.




Also since the stock insulation was long gone I got 2 of these small rolls to use inside the fenders.




I stuck the liners up in place and marked the spots where I planned to use the speed nuts. Not all the holes lined up since I was pushing and pulling the liners around in the fender for max clearance. After finding just the right spot for each one, I did some trimming and clipped them on.




Now for the pinch weld bulge! This is how they look for stock PW clearance.




This time around I decided to cut straight up the ridge. Then using a heat gun, made the pieces lay flat and overlap. I got the great idea to take the blade off my old tire groover and use it to milt the plastic and joint the two pieces together.




This is how it turned out afterwards plus adding a self tapping screw to make sure it stays put.






I also marked off and trimmer the front of the liners to match the trimmed bumper.








For the insulation I unrolled each piece out all the way.




Then I folded each piece vertically and used the big bags the liners came wrapped in and made bags for the insulation.




Once that was done and the liners were ready to go in, I shoved the insulation in place.










You might have also noticed that I added a couple of anchor points. One in the rear of the fender 6" or so over the very bottom screw. I added that one to keep the liner tight against the fender lip especially while driving at freeway speeds. The second is at the front of the fender going into the bumper lip. Because I trimmed the bumper I was missing the bottom hole up front to keep the liner secure, so I added one at the new bottom edge.

Looks good. Is the tire grocer just a hot knife?
