Love the Jeep man. Those Moabs really made the look.

What camera do you use?

I actually ended up getting my other wheels and tires back, I like them both equally. Will always like the moabs but the km2's ride way better than the kevlars.

I use a Nikon D90 with a 50mm 1.8

What gears are you running? Would it make sense to do gears first to see how it feels before dumping that much $ on a Ripp system?

This.

3.73s, 35's, and the 42rle has to suck worse than 33's and 3.07s...and that's pretty bad.

5.13 for 35's.

5.38 for 37's.

Pretty sure the deepest a JK D30 can go is 5.13 though. Might be wrong on that.

Edit: My God, you're running at 1600rpm at 65mph right now. That has to be awful.

I dont think its 1600.. Ill have to re look, I usually keep OD off anyways. But that low RPM is nice on the flats, better mileage Before the hills I was getting around 18 going 70.

I wouldnt got any lower (or higher) than 5.13) those teeth are tiny from what I've heard.

I regularly switch between the stock wheels/tires and the 35" Kevlars. I think the kevlars actually ride smoother than the stock bfg muds.
I opted for the Superchips FlashCal for speedo correction.
4.10's with the 3.6l is pretty good even in the CO mountains. Getting about 18mpg with the 35's and 20mpg with stock (2 door).
Happy Jeepin!

It would put you right below 2,300. Perfect RPM for cruising.

As promised pictures. Didnt do anything too hard but it was still really fun. Deflators worked great, doors off is the best thing ever. Especially when its almost 90 degrees out

When it was clean the day before..









Aired to 15psi, tires flex good, room for a 37 maybe?



And a nice drive back home with no breaks!

Thinking of getting a 50" led next week, was looking at getting a spot light instead of a flood light. Any preference? I would mainly use it for back roads driving..
