Yeah - they look awesome. Now you need to go out and make sure you got the bead seated right.

Nice i like them. How many miles on your jeep i don't think i've ever seen it come out of it's cave. If you keep it in there long enoughf it'll be a collectors item.

If you build your jeep so big and bad that it's really easy to get threw everything out there, then your going to get bored.

Looks great! (even though we all know you don't care about that stuff) Sorry, couldn't get it out with a straight face. Now, when do we see the pics of them getting used?

Man, should have done what I did and just had the wife do it. Beadlocks suck. But airing your Iroks down to 4psi is worth it. Your jeep now > black rims before.

Thanks everyone. It was a mild pain in the butt but I'm glad I did it. My mission for the second half of the year was to increase traction. I think with the addition of beadlocks I should be there or damn close to there.


Andy, if you can figure out a way to get my wife to even touch my Jeep then the next round is on me. I can't wait to get it down to those low PSI's and see what this thing can do.

Not yet. If there were a place to go around here I would. Every piece of land around here is owned my an oil and gas company and that makes it impossible to go anywhere. But, of course, even that is completely flat land. I literally live in the middle of freaking no where with no place to wheel. That's why I do the Jeep Jamborees. It at least gets me out somewhere (on private land) where I can see what it can do. The next Jamboree is two months away.

I have about two inches of clearance to the top. As far as I know my garage is standard height. Whatever that is.

Most standard garage doors are 7' to the top. I have around 1/2" clearance to my 7' garage door. I have to suck down the suspension to get it to fit with the soft top.

Just swapping leaf packs for a different set with a lower spring rate. Coilovers will stay the same.

I've decided to stick with the leaf springs for a few more runs. I'm going to swap out leaf packs and swap leaf spring shackles which are 2 big limitations I have now. That should greatly improve my junk as it sits. If I can't make it work the way I want then I will swap out for the coilovers with a back half setup. That will all be done in my own shop. Which hasn't started construction yet.
