Raskull, I need your help. I currently purchased a 2006 TJ and got out of my old TJ...
This new one has 33x12.5's on a teraflex 2" lift. However, your 1.75 daystar lift looks much taller then mine.
IF you have time would it be possible to take some measurements of your setup for me? Preferably in the same spots I measured mine at? Here is the link It goes to my cardomain. When you see the 4 pics of measurement you can click on them to make them bigger.
I was hoping to compare your measurements to mine. And oddly enough it seems my "33 inch" tires really aren't 33" tall. Pro Comp states they should be 32.5" However, mine seem to only measure 31.8" from top to bottom and 32" from left to right.
I'm assuming this is due to them being under load (weight of Jeep), being somewhat used for 7k miles and lost some tread, and for being under 25psi. So this may also be why yours looks taller.
Anywho, thanks again if you are able to get measurements in the exact spots I took measurements of mine. If not, that's ok. I know your time is valuable.
Mine is 31 3/8" to the front flare, and 26" to the back corner.
The tires I have on are at about 60-70% tread life and measure almost exactly the same as yours while mounted.. they are always smaller than the sidewall says while mounted, nothing to worry about.
I am running stock springs in the rear with 100,000 KM on the jeep, and XJ springs in the front with an additional 5/8" stock spacer/isolator stacked in there. Essentially, my front is about 1 1/4" taller than stock front springs, plus the 1.75" daystar lift.
Sorry for the long wait on the reply, have been a little out of the loop lately.. Lack of funds to wheel the last 6 months or so has gotten to me, but I'm goin out this weekend so I'm pumped!
I work a metal fab shop. We build semi truck trailers, and install large ramsey PTO and hydrailic winches for customers that need a winch on their trailer or truck.
As such, we are a ramsey dealer and I picked up a 9500UT for a good price and installed it last weekend.
I haven't got a chance to take out the jeep and use it, but I am very happy with the quality and features of the winch.
- It comes with a wireless remote. You install a small module and antenna under the hood, and run a plug out your grill and attach it to the back of the winch so it's ready to plug in like a normal remote when you need it. You don't want to leave it plugged in all the time in case someone grabs your remote thingy and starts pressing buttons asking (WHATS THIS DO?!). No, this hasn't happened to me, but I thought it could.
- It has an automatic clutch. This means it will engage the clutch when you start winching. This allows you to release the clutch, walk to the tree and hook up, and then start winching without having to walk back to engage the clutch. This is especially useful if you have a winch *****.
Anyway.. here are a few pictures. I also made a small bracket to attach to the bolts of the fairlead that I can mount my old KC lights.
