It gives an easy rating to install but no instructions. How hard are these to install and anyone have any thoughts on Eibach (I used Eibach on a previous vehicle and like them)?
Think you may be able to save your $ for a better first step. The 10A is already pretty level, lacking the notorious rake of other Wranglers. Haven't even heard those with winch install indicating an issue. And when I went from hard to soft top, didn't see much change either...

Teraflex HD Tire Carrier question - I have a 3" lift with 35" tires. My dealer told me that I only need the middle model ($499) vs. the top ($699) model. Has anyone else done this mod and only used the middle model? I was told I would only need the top model if I was going to use 37" tires or bigger. Also, I read several hundred posts ago that someone installed the top model and set to tire bolts at the 35" tire level, but the tire was sitting too high because of the unique 10A bumpers. Any advice or recommendations???

Finally picked it up from the dealer today.

Triple black with red interior. AEV 4.5 in SC lift, AEV Wheels, 35" KM2s, and TF HD Hinge.

Now it is time to start adding the finishing touches!

Which TF HD Hinge did you install? Middle model (499) or top model (699)??

Ok. If you look at my post before your picture post, I received some different opinions from my dealer. Not sure what to believe.

I saw what you posted. Mine may be overkill but it gives me option of putting a 37" tire on it later without having to do anything else. I do not have any issues with clearance on my bumper with 35s and I do have visibility out the back window still.

I have a buddy who is on his 4th lifted Jeep. He recommended the tires and said they are the best 35" he has ever had - and he has had ALOT! Just remember to rotate them at every oil change and they'll last for a long time.

OnePunch - I posted back on 6/5 with pics but can't figure out how to link to it using the WF App! You should be fine either way - TF would recommend the upgraded tire mount bracket which is the only difference between the models.

The leveling is not that bad and I will think this through. Not understanding what you mean here? Are you saying that a leveling kit won't work with a winch install or you haven't heard of the Eibach leveling kit before?

The winch adds front end weight, which, along with the typical front end, factory Wrangler rake, is why "leveling kits" have added adjustment in the front, and there is a market for them at all. The 10A generally lacks the rake, and those with winches have not been reporting "new" rake. I wasn't calling it bad. "Level" away with Eibach or other if you want, just not sure there is any real value with your 10A. These are not your average Wrangler.

Excellent deal! Thank you UhOhBadDog
I got the Zeon 10-s winch from Amazon and now waiting Maximus-3 to ship the mounting plate, hoop, etc.
This thimble will looks nice (and performs well - not really care that much, lol; I'm in the "look" department for this) with the hawse fairlead.

I am about to pull the trigger on Some package deals from Northridge 4x4 for items such as 1/ Arb aircompressor, 2/ Spod, 3/ Rigid D2 and Rigid 10" E seriies light bar... Anyone in this Forum got better deals somewherelse, please let me know. Thank you.

Northridge has been good to work with. I bought my SPOD from them, which was then shipped from SPOD. They are members on the forum, so send them a PM and see if they can cut you a deal. Rigid are great lights, especially the D2s. Consider BlackBoxLogistics (direct) for another option, as they are one of the better "me too" companies at 1/3 cost for LED.

Finally got my Rigid lights delivered - upper lights are the D2 driving lights - lower the Dually HD spots

Have to watch - it appears the Dually HD's aren't designed to fit on this dual bracket - called Rigid and they were great - said they have a bracket that may fit so shipping it out to me

Installing CB and rear camera this weekend and waiting for Maximus winch plate to be delivered - then getting the River Raider skids in a week or two

So lots of folks have been talking about a trip to Rausch - if there's interest - I'll set up a 101 class

Dog - I'm thinking about another 101 class in July / August then the 201 class in August / September - any takers? I'll coordinate them if there's interest - it was a blast with the group we took up a few weeks ago

Anyone already set up a trip? Next time we won't have to worry about the cicadas

I should be good for the 201 class sometime in late August / early September. I might even have a Cobra 75 CB installed by then.

My 10A will still be stock (referring to tires / lift) at that point. Not going to do any major upgrades until I take it out a few times.

I have mine with 305-55-20 ( i believe between 31-33 in diameter, and 12.5" that I measured) on 20" rims
Nitto Trail Grapplers and KX wheels. (I started out with 35 and finally went with 31.5 to be exact, I still have pictures with each type of tire by side for comparision)

I don't know how to post picture. My email cuslingo@yaa.com, you can send me your email and I will send you pics.

The clearance is OK except when I was off roading (playing in the mud at Azuza Canyon, CA) I experienced 2 loud pops/noises.

went home found that the the plastic right rear fender came loose (the retaining clips popped out). I pushed them back and replaced a few new clips/plastic pins -whatever you call it.

Sounds good - I went on the 101 with stock tires, etc - no lift and had no issues - the instructor - Kyle - is really good about making sure he doesn't take you anywhere that you might do some damage to your Jeep...
