The genbright bumper is sick, blackwhiteriot had that one and its stout. But I'm looking for something different. You guys haven't seen anyone run the synergy?

Edit: Nevermind lol

Installed my RK front Track bar, beefy! Thought Id unhook the sway bar since I was down there to see if I rub when flexing, and it barely clears!

Looking good! Sometimes I wish I would have gone with the 2.5" lift but I was considering 37s earlier.

Sorry for the late response, have had no internet..

Ive had them for maybe ~800 miles? They are still new. And yes the color is beautiful indeed

I fell you, I love the stance and 37's are definitely do-able with trimming. Someday it will be on 37's but the 35s fit really well and driving is still a breeze.. besides running out of OD all the time haha

Did some outside work today, as in trying to find something to do when its 55 degree out and clear skies.. So I debadged the sahara emblem. Looks cleaner IMO!



And took the top off

Dream for sure, never should have gotten that kia..

Some wheeling pictures that I finally got up. Did much much better with the lift and tires this time haha





My brother's WJ flexing

















Pretty mild trail but great to be in the woods



Didnt make it under, too tall/box-y



Sticky..

Thanks man, i love them. Really nice road tire and offroad traction. They clean out OK but not great. Doesnt seem to stop them all too much though. Road noise is a 7 out of 10 on the freeway, definitely noticeable but I like it

Ive got some material left, lots of mesh but youll need to get zip ties and mouting plates. It takes a couple hours but its worth it in the end.

What sliders did you go with? Also, did you get a hood decal or did I dream it?
