Thanks Spyder6. And thanks for running TJOTM. Hopefully it will keep rolling along strong in the future.

And thanks to the other fellas running with me last month and to folks who voted for my rig. I really appreciate it.

Congrats man!

It was close there for awhile--well, maybe the first 30 seconds...

Congrats! It's an exclusive calendar club!

What's the gear ratio, R&P, axles on it?

Edit: Found your user profile. Superior 5.13's. Good choice. Do you have it locked front and rear? If so, what kind? How about doing the bypasses on the D44's if you're locked?

Very nice rig! I'm impressed. Congrats to you!

If you read his submission, he has electric lockers front and rear...and I'm going to assume it means he is running JK rubi axles...

My profile page is confusing as hell. Those stats are for my JK, not the TJ.

The TJ does have JK Rubicon axles under it though. Gears are the stock 4.10s for now.

I did a search twice and for some reason couldn't find the original submission to see the elec. lockers note. I did assume he's running JK Rubi. D44's though, so we're thinking the same way on that.

BrickTop: I see that you have the JKS ACOS: what do you think of them?

Edit #2: Came across the original submission page. JK D44's with elec. lockers. Doy!

Don't pay attention to the profile page. ACOS are in the JK, not the TJ. I didn't want to go any higher than 2.5" on this. They're great in the JK though. I was towing a pretty heavy trailer with it and being able to adjust the back end to keep it level was handy.
