Subscribed. Nice pics! I was looking at your stance, I noticed your toe-in looks a bit off. Did you do this on purpose? Educate me please!

Thanks buddy! I am toed-in about a 1/8 -1/16 of an inch. It is on purpose. It helps compensate for the lift and the bigger tires. Anything more than 1/8" can cause wobble and irregular wear of your tires. My buddy Marc does a lot of the work, or instructs me on what to do.

As far as those headlights go...it was a fail! Huge Fail! I made sure and asked 3 people before I ordered them. Well...they just called me and said there was a mistake, and they told me the wrong thing. There was only one headlamp in the box. The manager at the store is working with me, but damn it, I knew it was too good to be true!

Awful.

The toe-in looks like toe-out. Prob just a visual effect of the pic. I guess when I get my alignment ill tell them to set it at 1/8". Is that what that Project-JK alignment article recommended?

The manager is making me a deal on the lights, but I am getting ready to go on a snowboarding trip to north Colorado. I could justify the sale price, but I can't justify the Manager's special price right now...

It is an optical illusion with the ACE fenders. I think that is what the Project-JK article recommends, but more importantly to me, it is what Marc recommends. He has a shop here in town. Pretty smart dude, and no one else gets to work on my Jeep.

Thanks!! I am. I broke my tire carrier, and I am waiting for the replacement to come in. I like the look with the tire carrier off, so I may leave it off permanently. I haven't figured out what I will do with my 37" spare tire though.
