Regarding "everything else", what are your plans for wheels/tires/etc?
I think it will be ok if movement is the only issue. I sure would like to get a hands on look at the things to wrap my head around it. Soon enough.
I tell you what. I bought the rubicon with the idea that I would not want to modify it for awhile. That did not last long. Even though the thing is highly capable from the factory I can't keep from modding it. Just a hair over a month of ownership and the money is just flying at it.
I currently have purchased and installed a cb and and roll bar grab handles at all four doors. I have purchased and am waiting on shipping on a front modular winch bumper,flat fenders,warn 9000i,front and rear diff sliders,3.5 lift,hard top liner and a superchips. I just got done picking up all my recovery gear like snatchblocks,straps,chains, shackles and such. Not cheap. Next on the list is the lod rear bumper/tire carrier with the jerry can holders and rack. After that I am skinning the belly with the full river raider system. Then I can settle into wheels and tires and the rest of the superflex system. The wheels and tires are going to take awhile so I can make up my mind. There is another 4 door rubicon around here with what looks like a 3inch teraflex lift and 35's. Looks great but really shows that the rock rails need trimming in the back. My mind keeps saying 33's but my heart wants 35's. I was going to ask the guy how they did offroad but he litteraly has a fake mud vinyl wrap on it. Unbelievable. That and armor all on the tires.
I really like the look of 35's. No problem trimming the rails. Just don't want to have to regear right now. I am also looking for the right wheels. I want something in a 16x8 finished in black. I would like alloy to save weight but all the ones I can find are too damn fancy. I want an alloy in something that looks like a soft 8 or similar. Price then becomes an issue. I would pay more for the right wheel though.
This weekends plans include extending my breathers(I like to play in the water) and sandblasting the rest of the new front diff slider. That brings up something kind of funny. I was sanding down the areas I could get to yesterday and I was thinking about other mods and how most everyone seems to not want to touch cam bolts due to the extra time and effort involved with installing them and switching over to true arms afterwards. Your talking to the guy who spent an hour and a half grinding powdercoat off a brand new perfectly good diff slider yesterday because I didn't like the color. I'll have it ready for powdercoat this weekend. Should have just dragged out the sandblaster to begin with though. Did I say I love my jeep.
