I read the shitter Is not threaded, true?
First. I have no idea what happens when u cut the bar. Lol. Sorry.

There's a few that do have bigger tires/lift but it wouldn't be different than on any other 2012 JK/JKU.

And ya. The shifters are usually compression fit. Not threaded.

I am unhappy with this since the product said it would work!
The Bestop site shows that it won't fit the 2-door. Also, the Tuffy one doesn't fit, fyi. Basically, there isn't one that fits the 2-door . There are some locking gun boxes that will fit under the seat from the back that you can cable lock, but that's not gonna be as secure.

Well I spent the money on this thing so I'll make it work, one way or another. Lol

Well I have a 2.5" Lift on, but when i need my next set of tires I'm trying figure out if i want to get 33s or spent a ton on 35s, new gears, and tire carrier. But Idk what will fit so i wanted to know what others were riding on...

33's will fit stock w/very little to no rubbing at full flex. 33's and your 2.5'' should get you full flex w/disconnected sway and no rubbing. 35's will fit with your lift but you may need to regear. You can get by with 3.73's but 3.21's would be unbearable I'm assuming as to me it's damn near unbearable w/stock 32's.

got one. a strange one. anyone notice their seat map pockets (in the back of the front seats) shedding foam inside? i keep a clean shop rag and small mag light in there. yesterday i spilled a bit of water on me on the way to work, went to grab the shop rag, and noticed small bits of foam everywhere. if you look, one side (the inner outerside is covered in foam) thats what peeling away. STRANGE INDEED.

just got done with a closer look. appears like a clear shield? over the foam. thats whats peeling off. the foam is fine. looked at driver side. it does not have this top film cover over the foam. lol.... just going to peel the rest off a vac it out.

any comments on the daystar 1 3/4" kit with shocks?
Daystar KJ09159BK - Daystar 1-3/4" Comfort Ride Lift Kit in Black with Scorpion Shocks for 07-12 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

might be looking for a mild bump in the future. figured this would look ok with keeping the arctic stock wheels/tires.

I went with the rock krawler 2.5" max travel kit and I love it. But it all depends on what you want and how much you wanna spend.

I looked at that one but was thinking for the extra $100 I would get the 2.5'' w/shocks. I've seen it with the stock Rubi wheels and it looks good IMO and would look even better with some 33's or even 35's if you have the gearing for it (I don't )

Has anyone had problems with the circular jeep cap on the stock wheels. I am not sure if mine was stolen or it fell off? Can you order extra ones?

They are just the wheels and tires from a rubicon painted black. It's the fact that a Sasquatch painted them that makes them special.

That's why it costs so much. You have no idea how expensive sasquatch labor is! They eat you if they're not paid adequately

I'd love to see the pics of that. I painted the oh shit bar all orange and the vent rings are black and the black inserts are now orange too. Speaker grills are orange too

Of course they did, but still, that is not an Arctic.
