Excellent condition! Just won't fit my new tires.
$30 + whatever shipping is to you. Anyone?

In efforts to get her more trail friendly Im trying the unpainted fender option. I'm torn between the looks of the two, thoughts guys?

For trail work, I'd go unpainted for sure. If it's just for looks, I could go either way. Black looks more rugged. Painted looks nice to my eyes. I know not all jeepers see it that way.

Lexington, what bull bar do you have and did it require any modification to the stock front bumper? Does it have light mounts? Thanks!

After a year of monitoring this thread....finally getting around to posting some pics of what I believe is the "close as I ever will be" artic mod. At least until somebody invents a way to make the MPG go the other way or I get a 2nd vehicle. Latest and (hopefully) last major mods was adding 4.56 gears and the Yakima Whispbar rack.

Nice. Running 33's? I've got the 3.73 rear and was thinking about making the jump. Mileage now is only 16.

I see you are running the nx with the duster and wraparound combo.
Does the soundbar speaker cover help the review visibility out the back?
I cut into the j-tab on the wraparound jammer then used Velcro wrapped around speaker bar to keep it up. the speaker cover I think is expensive.

Running Nitto TrailGrabbers 295/75/R18's 2.5" budget boost lift....suppose to be 34.4" or something like that. Stock was 3.21 so 4.56 makes a world of difference....can actually pass people now and real quick from red light to red light. Little time getting used to 2600 rpm's at 70 but nice to have a cruise control back.

No on the cover helping visibility....mainly see only the spare....i really never run with it up much and only have it for rain events....very pleased with this setup as very little leakage even in big rain...would like to see your velcro mod.

I don't have one of my own, but I just wanted to tell you all how much I LOVE your winter chill arctics!

I wonder who I'd have to strangle to get one now.

New to the thread

Been following this thread for a while. Love a lot of the mods , but haven't done any on mine yet. Thought I'd just pop in with a hello.

Hello all. I have a 2012 Artic that I will be posting for sale once my 15 posts come about. But after seeing this thread it may just not make it in the for sale section. Awesome pics and mods.
