Saa-weeeet.

So, how's that power loss treating you? Getting used to it, or dying for a regear?

Well, quick answer would be "regear" lol

But-it's not all that bad. Last night after install, i wanted to lay on the gas and see what it does, that did not work too well.
I Had 150-200 lbs of parts/wheels in the back and that did not help.

1st gear builds RPM's slower but the jeep is slower haha. I can still start in 2nd if I am light on the gas, let it build up to 3000 and shift.
Highway is slower going but not too much different stock. I just have to keep the Rpms up. A lot more focus shifting for sure

4.10's are bare minimum in my opinion. Could not see it happening with 321 or 373. Even with a lighter setup like the KM2's and 15" wheels

That was the long answer but yes -a regear is planned

Well, in no rush. Some say it looks close.
I've seen some setups where the seam is 1/4 away.

On my 2do list though

Spare... Yes!!

Carrier ...... No
Looking into option now. Might even be able to fab something at work that uses the hitch to mount a support.
I really want to do a swing away buy they are awfully expensive.

It's a little over an inch. Pic looks closer.

But I will.... I can remove at work and use a cutting wheel, clean up the edge and coat/paint.

I think they look better with one tire showing the white raised lettering and the rest turned in

Daaaaaaaaaaamn I love those wheels. kbwwolf turned me onto them a week or so ago and they are awesome. Looking good man.

I am very jealous right now. A couple more weeks and I'll feel that joy you're feeling of having some brand new shoes

such a great look, those 35's...what is the current gearing you're running? I saw you said 4.10's would be your min but not seeing this set up working with 321 or 373. just curious. (you're making me die over here with those pics)

Wheels go up and to the rear, anyway. But you're gonna need to cut. Make your bro do it, while he recites, "15's rock, 15's rock, 15's rock..."
