The 38's are actually a comp tire and have sticky compound. Moab is going to be so fun!

38's on the left 37's on the right

First to make a PSC PS reservoir fit without having to use a aftermarket airbox.

Savvy front bumper prototype hardcore aluminum.

Cutting the front plates off lets us build a bumper with a better profile


Fitting the winch deck



Welded it up and added a little paint


Fit the bumper and transpose the Warn Zeon profile on to it

Front stretches are always hard. Good luck!

Started on the electrical. If you haven't checked out a sPOD unit, do! They make wiring up everything so easy! The remote switch panel with bracket is so easy to install.

Thanks for the wishes. Good luck with your build, although after seeing the lj and the other jk I doubt you need it!

Powder coated Walker Evans wheels and Falken Wildpeak MT 38" tires. The Walkers have the correct back spacing to insure easy turning and little stress on the ball joints.

Is the upper front arm and bracket available from you? I already have 7075 lowers and you got me thinking.

Still wondering about the arm.

We just fabbed a bracket for the frame side. The 2-1/4" Johnny Joint is what we use and it is much larger than theOEM bracket.

Our new JK hardcore bumper is a DIY project. Cutting and welding is required. The benefits make it worth it. Just need to set the fairlead and tig weld the corners and the prototype is done. We are already have a run scheduled so I can have some ready for Moab.

Great thread, super-cool. What is the backspacing of the Walker Evans beadlocks for the RJ D60/D70 that you're using for ball joint life?
