Please do!

Tires were getting close to bald and winter is right around the corner.. threw on 1.5" SpiderTrax wheels spacers and 275/70R18 DuraTrac's on my stock 18" wheels.. Unfortunately they rub when the wheel is cranked all of the way.

When these wear out (waaay down the road) I would probably go down to a 17" aftermarket wheel and DuraTrac's to fit.. I don't really regret sticking with the 18s but I think I would like 17's more.

Put a washer or two behind the steering stop bolts, should stop you from rubbing on full turn by not allowing you to turn as far.

Added an all cast red hi lift instead of my black steel one. Love the look better. Really can see the jack pop back there now. Also wrapped the passenger grab bar. A little rushed but can redo it on a bored winter day soon and add Turks heads to the ends. Really like the look and function.

Finished welding my shackle mounts for the front bumper, just gotta clean em up, paint and bolt in!

Also got my rear stubby bumper all tacked up, she's a tight fit but I like it tight

Hopefully the petroleum won't disintegrate the bag.
