They seem to do great! Ive only taken them once but it wasnt very crazy with the snow amount I was driving in. I like them though! I think the duratracs would out-do them any day though. I had them on my WJ and they friggin kicked *** man. If I wasnt going to a 37 next, I would pick the duratracs anyday. They need to make them in a 37!

Hey guys, any info on WJ's? I need some help with mine not starting. Heres the thread I just made:

Thought Id get a better picture of the bumper and lights on. I accidentally switched the bracket the wrong way on one side, so one is lower than the other. It is now fixed, I was wondering "why is that one lower"





Im trying out image shack cause photobucket is dumb and redid everything now I cant upload

Yeah I had to go 17s because I'm upgrading the brakes. Tires are a lot more expensive though haha

Thankyou! No not really, It wasnt my taste after a little while. Not durable steel, wasnt holding a winch or lights, just didnt fit me. I wanted the ARB earlier before I got the 10a, so this worked out great.

Picked up some rigid spot duallys. Freaking love them! The spot is really nice for long distance. I mounted them with some smittybilt windshield mounts. Turned out good!



It was dark at the RC track, so I lit it up!





Will get some better pictures later with the Nikon instead of the crap iphone

I like how its a combo of flood and spot. Looks like a new product?

Took some quality pictures with the Nikon. I hate using my iphone for pictures, but thats what being lazy gets you. Im using a 50mm 1.8 all manual lens on my Nikon D90. Love the combo!

MoonyJohn, Can I ask what kind of MPG are you getting with your setup? Do you have a Superchip?

Thanks for the reply. Are you running any kind of computer chip? or is it just the re-gearing that helped out.

I'm getting 13-14 right now. I have a 2.5" lift with 33". no extra heavy stuff either. I am just trying to improve it before I drive across country into north east Canada.
