OK .... I want to know exactly what this 10A has in terms of lift and tires.

Then I will duplicate with my own version.

I'm gonna throw my opinion out on this while putting on my flame suit .

I'm thinking 2.5" lift with 285/70-17 km2's, spacers probably aren't neccessary. A member on here, moabite, has this combo on a billet Rubi and they appear to be the same.

Thinking the Anvil behind it is stock except for the wider AEV wheels which baloon the tires much more.

-EDIT- I'll eat my words already. Looked on Warn's easter jeep safari facebook blog. Found a close up of just the wheel and tire on the billet 10A. 35-12.50-17 was the tire size. So probably 3-4 inch lift judging by space between fender and tire. The Anvil probably has a 2.5" with the same 35's.

So they put 35s on stock Rubi 10A rims? 7 or 7.5", right?!

Does anyone have a close up photo of the 10A winch label from the show Jeeps? I'm thinking it might be cheaper to just order the 9.5cti and have a decal made for it.

Warn is running a $100 rebate on this model for this month, and there are a few vendors with make offer pricing on flea bay.

The only I've seen is from the Detroit auto show walk around by AutoMotoTube. I took a couple of screen grabs with my iPad but can't figure out how to upload via this mobile app...

So are we just talking powder coating the hook and fair lead and putting a decal on the 9.5cti-s? I'll take my $100 rebate and be done with it. I will definitely add the red accents and be very happy.

That's pretty much it. The winch is a Warn 9.5 CTI-S with a special label, colored hook and painted/powdercoated hawse fairlead.

Been considering the same track. But I did search for the part number listed on the sticker.

Adding to this question, which winch models will fit the Rubicon 10A bumper? I am looking to add one as soon as it arrives (sometimes I feel like it is an "if it arrives"), however without having access to one I can't take it to a shop and validate the options. I do not want to change out the bumper so if anyone has put a winch on it, post a pic and provide the model please. TIA!

Any 10A owners planning to install a Mopar Stage 2 or Stage 3 suspension?

If so, what wheel and tire combo?

Bringing this thread back from the dead , since most are starting to see delivery or transit of their 10A's.

Not a "Mopar" stage 3, but the same kit. Teraflex pre-runner with Fox remote res. shocks. I'm not into bigger is better, so no 35's for me.

I spoke to the guys at teraflex about what I want to do and need out of my jeep. We decided to use the pre-runner kit which is actually 3 inch springs. Since I'm not looking for 35's but wanted high speed off-road capability, they substituted the 2-door 3 inch springs and said the 4-door weight will bring it in at about 2.5". We'll find out next week how this works out.

Tire size will be 285/70-17 Dick Cepek Fun Country II's. Wheels are AEV Argent pintler beadlocks.

If the Jeep delivers tommorrow as promised then I should know how it all works out and have pics by next Friday.

Are you self-installing this? This one requires some cut/weld, right? Did you go with their SpeedBumps? Sorry, lots for me to learn on this front. Thanks!

Yes sir! Self install and yes to the speed bumps. Cutting and welding are no problem, I've been building high-end hot rods for a long time. I don't think there is any welding involved in the speedbump install, only some minor cutting on the front bumpstop area.

There will be a good bit of welding involved with the Artec trusses front and rear though.

Damn cool. Wish I lived closer, would be great to learn alongside. Trusses have crossed my mind as well.

The one on the auto show 10A is a 9.5 CTI-S, it's got Spydura synthetic line. The 9.5 CTI is the same winch with steel line.

I've already got mine here ready to install next week. I posted in the regular 10A thread a couple of weeks ago about it. Another member also took advantage of the deal.

Go to E-Bay and look for a vendor with make offer or best offer, the one I found was US parts Outlet. They will usually cut $100 off whatever the lowest advertised price is.

Warn has a $100 rebate through the end of this month also. I wound up with a new 9.5 CTI delivered to my door for $1099 all in.

A couple of us went through a good seller on ebay - US Parts Outlet - using best offer. Plus, the $100 rebate is good through April. Nobody has posted of the Zeon will fit. We do know that the 9.5cti/cti-s will fit like a glove.

6. Upgraded speakers (still researching options)
7. Rotopax 2x 2 gallon fuel and 2 gallon water
8. Quadratech Grill insert
9. Daystar Hood Latch
10. Mopar Hood lock

Well, by the time I'm done modding my 10A, the only things that will distinguish it as a 10A will be the 10A badging and red interior. I'll be replacing both bumpers, wheels/tires, lifting it, installing an intake, installing a winch, and possibly stereo mods if I don't like the 730N system's sound. I'm not sure if I'll sell the stock bumpers or just keep them and put them back on when I'm ready to sell the ride. I'll also get a new set of 35" tires for the stock tires for snow driving in the winter.
