I'm going with the 265/70/17's. They are having a customer appreciation sale, so that knocks 40 bucks off of the total. Then I also get a 60 dollar mail-in rebate. Also thinking about some hankooks or some BFG A/Ts for my other WK. The 06 is getting lifted soon and the 07 has junky tires.

Are the 265s going on the lifted one? Are you going to run spacers? If you don't, it's going to be really close to the bolt. I like the Cooper Discoverer AT3s also. A coworker has them and he likes them much more than Silent Armors.

Got my tow hooks installed, got my tail light guards installed, and did the right rear fender roll w/ paint job. I couldn't get one of the lug nuts off of the left rear wheel so the left rear fender mod will have to wait until tomorrow. I used engine enamel to cover up the parts of the fender I smashed in, worked very well.

Yeah the duratracs(265s) are going on the lifted one. I wont need spacers, I am running the AEV Pintlers. They have enough backspacing to clear the bolt. I had the cooper discoverers on my old truck, but $$$!

That sounds awesome. I have yet to see a lifted WK in Omaha. By dad said he saw a lift black CRD around our area but I haven't seen it. Love those Pintlers too. Aren't Duratracs a good bit more than Coopers?

That looks awesome! I can't wait to see the end results! I love the idea that you can take it out and still use the stock radio. Great work.

No I don't. I should actually take the headers out of my sig. I can't find a mechanic that will touch them and the dealership is ready to break the bank to do it. Every exhaust shop around only deals will the exhaust up to the manifolds/headers.

Yeah, getting everything cut perfectly was time consuming, but was actually the simplest part of the process. Moving the factory radio back and remounting, then adding a new bezel around it is going to be a little tricky. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so if it's not visually perfect, I won't be happy. There are just so many things that will have to line up just right. I know I'll get it, but it may take a little time.

Hey jeepers and jeepets I recently purchased rotors and pad from Kolak and I know lots of you have too so my questions are has anyone done a quick write up on the install and I'm sure it's pretty sure it's a straight forward instal. Thanks for any help provided

There is a little rubber plug in the back of your rear brakes, pop that out and there is an adjustment dial you can get at with a flat head screwdriver to release the tension on the e-brakes.

Then I had to get my rotors off with one of these:
