Looks great, curious to see how the Falken's compare to the MT/R or KM2...

I think there is a rise in the asphalt for the man door there. It is actually very level. It may be as I have no bumper or spare on the back. I measure the frame front and rear and see were it is.

Gerald, you mentioned that the KM2s and GY MTR w/ Kevlar's side walls were too light weight.. what's the ply / strength of the Falken sidewalls? And they are more durable then the kevlar sidewalls?

No the TJ bumper will not work on a JK. At least not without major modifications to the rear frame rails.

The GY have proven themselves to be a very good tire overall but a little light duty for us. The sidewalls are a little light and we experienced easy cuts.

The Falken took the hardest hits of all three tires. The steering wheel was ripped out of John Currie hands and the tires did not flat.

PSC RockBrawler just was fitted up and is being painted now. I like it but it is heavy! At 67 lbs it is pretty lite for a steel bumper but I like my bumpers in 20 lbs range. We won't have a Savvy aluminum bumper for a while so Larry gave me one. In Genright's defense Tony offered up a aluminum rear bumper as well.

Getting offers for free parts left and right... I guess it pays off to be a KOH champion

They know if they needed or wanted something. I'd gladly give it to them. In fact Larry's new LJ sports some of our parts.

Very nice Gerald. Love all the new JK parts. Got me thinking hard about the future.

I will keep an eye on this build as your new parts are available.

Nice build, I really like the bumper except im not a chrome man so I would have powdercoated the whole thing. But hey too each is his own! Nice!
