Back home



Then my gf washed it, wiped down the dash and interior and gave it a full vaccum and re-organized the hatch area. While she did that, I fixed the lock and latch on the rear hatch so it opens, took out the winch solenoid to get the bumper ready to get taken off, mounted up the rear ARES bumper and did a couple other things here and there



97+ nose, gonna get painted and trimmed up





I ordered 4 18w cree 4x2 light pods as well, they will be going on the front bumper where the turn signals would have been

Oh, and in dresser the weld for the drivers door hinge broke so I will have to re-weld that soon

lights on bumper are 4 18w CREE pod lights, "headlights" are 2 semi trailer tail lights. Winch showed up today too

Oh, forgot, this happened last wheeling trip. IRO warrantied it. Plenty of thread engagement. Over 2/3 of the male end was threaded in





Literally fit perfect, I didnt know if it was going to fit. They are just 4" flush mount trailer lights

Looks great man!

I was wondering if you could help me with something. I have Stock jeep Icons on the jeep now, but after my breaks locked up last week ( Caliper piston cracked in half and lodged itself) I noticed one of the rims has a crack in it. So now im looking for new wheels... Which was exciting at first, but now its getting annoying. I'd like to stay at 15" to have a good selection for when these 30''s run out and I can go to 33''s , but I am unsure on what back spacing I need to have.

Sorry to bother you with this, but your one of the only people I could think about that I have talked to face to face that I'd asked about my jeep

No worries man what width are you looking to run for tires? 15x8 with 4" BS is what most seem to run. Most stock wheels are ~5" BS.

The wheels on my jeep are 15x7 with 2" BS they stick out a little more now with the beadlocks.

I'm not sure yet sadly... When I bought the Jeep it came with set of 30 x 7 x 15 ( stock icons with 30'' BFG at) and a 1" BB puck and shackle.

I actually got it out on the trail for the first time this weekend out in Riverfalls for the MN trail riders summer event. It did pretty well. I think I may be going up to a 4" by the end of summer here, and am looking at 31s. With how little room I will have I think I may go with 4'' BS just to make sure I can stuff a little.

Let me know if you or anyone you know have something kicking around. I'll probably be ordering the first week of august.

Right on man I will let you know. Depending on what I have for time when I get back I will be going up to 5.5" so my old 4" coils will be up for grabs. I will probably have to cut the leafs at the eyelet to get them out of the jeep but the AAL will still be good.

I got my jeep up and going today. Just gotta retorque some stuff and we leave at 6am tomorrow for the crawl 4 the cure!

Thanks man, friday a professional photographer followed in a friends rig I cant wait to see how those pics turn out

Jeep progress is gonna slow down, bought a house today!





It fits the truck in the garage, super nice neighborhood, backs up to a pond with a huge deck and yard, were going to move the shed back further in the lot with the jeep and then the trailer will fit beside the garage!
