I love the smell of fresh rubber

I finally got my 35's
315/76/16 Duratracs on 16x8 Method Racing wheels matte black

and of course the first day with them on(yesterday) I get pulled over because my 3rd brake light was blocked by the tire. Luckily the cop was a fellow jeeper and told me to put it in the back and I could be on my way It's a good thing I had a big shackle and tow strap in the back and strapped it to the roll cage. It looks kinda stupid, but I don't care because I have 35's now

Tell me what yall think. Thanks














Pretty ugly, but it works

yes I know. It's driving me crazy. I need that teraflex carrier to come out so I'll feel comfortable mounting it on the back. At least I know the way it is now it's not going anywhere with that 10 ton strap on it


Thanks for the compliments guys

Thanks man, they're a small company from so-cal I found a couple weeks ago. They don't appear to have branched out very much yet

Dozer has grown on me. Still think rescue green is quite possibly the best jeep color.

I'm really not a dozer fan. When I got this one it was sitting right next to the exact jeep but in dozer and i just didn't care for it.

that rescue green is a damn good looking color tho

yes sir, it's a crush

It's probably the combination of your monitor and my crappy camera

I bought another cheap camera because I keep breaking them so it doesn't really help the color come out well

That thing looks sick, Rooster. The more I see Crush the more I like it, just wish I could see one in person, never have yet.

35's are what JKU should come with, just looks awesome.

I like all the variations of orange. Loved mango the best but crush Is awesome too. I've seen a dozer in person and looked ok,
don't really have an opinion yet on it.

Looks nice bro. I am running the same set up and love it. Well almost, switching out my 33" Duratracs and waiting for the 35's to come in.

I like the mango tango too, but think it would look better if it was just a shade darker, but that's just me

NICE. Wait, you have the same wheels?? I haven't seen another JK with them except 2 or 3 online.
Yeah I can't wait to see the duratracs perform on the trail next weekend. You'll love the 35's, I do and they've only seen pavement so far

I like your rig and the new tire/wheels

If you got stopped for a third brake light either obstructed or no third brake light at all, you live in a town with Nazi's for traffic cops or he just wanted to check out your rig. Either way they have got to have some other problems pending like speeders, red light runners, texting, something but a third brake light out, WTF. BTW, just curious, was it a Motor Cop or in a car?

Sorry about the rant.

As far as the Teraflex spare tire mount, the only mention I have seen hear, and I don't see everything and have not searched the issue, but saw that Wolf said he had one, I think. Try calling Teraflex, they maybe out and not on their website.

Thanks man.

The cop was actually a fellow jeeper and was trying to keep me from getting a ticket and told me to throw it in the back. So i was appreciative, but completely agree that there's much more for them to worry about than my 3rd brake light being blocked. He was a nice guy tho so I was glad he let me go He was in a squad car

The Teraflex carrier is supposed to be out late May. I have talked to them a couple times about it and am going to pre-order as soon as they allow it which they say will be in about 2 weeks.

I think Wolf is waiting for the TF carrier also, but I think he has the Smittybilt oversize carrier, if I'm I remember correctly
