good lookin jheep!!!
Who makes the rims? Not for me but a friend who has been looking for something like those.... Who'd u get them from? What did they run?

I am running 35's on 17" rims. Got the Pro Comp Xtremes for my rig. I run at 28 psi cold. which equates to 30ish psi when warm. The pressure ur running will make it a rough ride. Try putting it lower and I bet it will soften up some. Should feel a lot better over bumps.

Also depending on how much the new wheels weigh I would recommend a swingate. My Wild Boar bumper doest have a swingate option so I just installed the OrFab NonCan carrier and its awesome!!! Love it!

Anyway rig is looking good. Keep it up!

That looks really sweet, Detrick! Get her over to Cumberland, or come on down to the Shenandoah, and run some sloppy trails!!

I didnt add pics yet. i got it on after dark and didnt feel like dealing with it. ill get some tomorrow. it just bolts on right behind the muffler where those 4 holes are at. It should fit with an aftermarket bumper. i got it from rough country at roughcountry.com just go there and check it out. its under 100 bucks so its a cheap mod.

Looks awesome man, those wheels are badass.

FWIW I would recommend lowering your tire pressure as well. I run 24PSI cold on my 35x12.50 Baja MTZs.

I argued with my tire shop (they know Jeeps) about using only 27 PSI. (That's where they set them). So decided to prove them wrong with the chalk test. I was wrong they were right. Your Jeep is lighter than most vehicles and the load rating on that tire () is probably in line with a much heavier vehicle. Mine rides great at 27 PSI and it's a 4 door which is a little heavier.

Looking great! I think those wheels look great on the Jeep And I will really lower the pressure in the tires you will notice alot better drive...


I had my oil changed awhile back (yes I know I did not do it myself) and the tech came and told me it was done and that all 5 (spare included) of my tires were low so they added some air, I asked him what they were all at he said all were at 28 lbs so I just stared at him until he realized that is what they were supposed to be at lol

I got an aftermarket hitch, same as yours, I'm sure, and then had to get a new rear bumper (lady hit me).
FYI: There are VERY FEW aftermarket rear bumpers that don't have their own unrated hitch built in, or go down too far to use the receiver.

and hey MilMan, did you find Ali Baba's gold or somethin'? You must have some money saved up!!! (read as Jeep envy!)

Lol, well i did have some money saved up. but i also just reenlisted and got a pretty nice little bonus. and i dont plan on getting a new rear bumper so im fine with it not working with them. (not any time soon anyways). Thanks for all the comments guys, i really appreciate it. Lets go wheeling some time if your in the area. we have a group going to rousch creek on the 16th if anybody hasnt caught that thread yet just look up 1-16-2010 rausch and you should find it, if not just pm me. ima try and get some pics up of the stuff i didnt put on here. right now most my time off is in the night so im not able to take good pics.

i would pull those wheels off right now!!!! i have the same ones, and after just one winter, ALL the clear coat covering the machined parts came off, and the wheels started pitting. and i even cleaned them 3 times a week. trust me, they look great but KMC DOESN'T stand behind their stuff, and won't replace wheels that ever touched salt. just warning you, cuz when summer comes, you are going to be really bummed out
