Looks awesome, might have to do this soon since it doesn't really cost anything! One question: it looks like you just cut the hood and leave it, is that right? I wasn't sure if you cut and then bent the edge or just left it.

Note the extra grooves in the pictures. Taking out a lot more rubber than just cutting for siping.

Grooving.

One reason to do it is to get a more desirable tread pattern. Another is to add some life into a worn out set by cutting the tread deeper.

Obviously the later has some ramifications such as decreasing the puncture resistance of the tire. Most people I know who groove for more tread depth do so on tires that are only seeing the trail.

The 37" claws are take offs from a dodge with a bad alignment. After cutting them the jeep is actually driveable.

Made a huge differnce in traction a.d driveabilty.

Once you cut, you can trim the hood with this:

what length arms are you running front and rear, uppers and lowers? what front UCA mounts are you running on the frame side? looks like you cut off the frame side LCA mounts and just moved them?

and ORIs
