I concur. Mine was tested thoroughly at The Badlands in Indiana this weekend and it survived like a champ. I'm becoming a big fan of Rugged Ridge products and will probably go with their side protection next.

MyGIG REN for sale, works perfectly.

Verra nice! How much load can that hold?

Remember: 'Peon' used to be a verb.

It has a stationary load capacity of 1000 pounds and an operational capacity of 300. Realistically looking at the materials and strength of construction it could easily hold 500 pounds of gear heading down the road. You would have to be careful though, more so with a lifted rig, as the rack sits pretty high being and weighted down would really throw off your cog.

Yeah, I know. Tires and the needed lift are next, maybe as early as in the next two weeks. I'm looking at 35x12.50.15 BFG KM2's on some sort of steelie. Those will require a 3" lift, so I'm probably gonna go rough country for that and spidertrax spacers. Unfortunately since it's all tied together I have to really get the wifes ok, if I could do it in stages it'd be easier.

I suppose I could go lift, then spacers then wheels and tires but it'd look pretty bad for awhile.

Nice flex on the second pic, which lift are you running? What about your wheels too?

Thanks. Looks like RG JK's were out in force on Saturday!

You'll love the KM2s, awesome on the rocks and great in the mud. You might like the Cragars, got my 17x9's @Discount Tire here locally for $76 each and $6 each for the center caps, they look great, can take some rock abuse and easy on the pocket book...just a thought.

I took my Jeep back, to the repair shop, in order to have some minor paint issues sorted out. I should have her back by the end of the week.
