You can see the difference in how mine look compared to yours here
Thanks!!! Yeah i know i have the same tire on my TJ and its mounted the right way.Im taking the JK back this weekend and have them redo it.

Very well could be the lens of the camera causing the bowing. Although, if you look at it in correlation with the bump stop, it does look very bowed.

After the 37s i have not wheeled it until today mainly because of work.

So far the longer bumpstops prevented me from rubbing. I also had my tires road force balanced because of the shimmy i had @ 40 MPH.Apparently my wheels were slightly bent is why i had the shimmy...im now using the bad wheel as spare.

Here's some pix of todays wheeling trip.

Getting gas for the 3rd time this week



No rubbing at full stuff in the rear.



Front is good also



My brother in law's rig that looks very similar to my TJ



Some random shots

I got my 35's. Running 3.73s at 65mph I'm getting 16.5 mpg. Next year I hope to regear and put on some 37"s. Those things just make your Jeep look AWESOME!!!! Looks like a coll trail too.

Wow consider yourself lucky.I was getting around 14 when i had 35s,3.73 and a tuner.Now im getting 13 mpg and most of the times less since i got heavy feet its still better than my TJ tho and its a manual.

Rogerg...I am happy with the gas mileage and surprised. I know most would say I'm crazy, but, I run 40psi on the road. I'm sure that is boosting the fuel economy. The K/M2s are also lighter than most Mud tires. My last setup with steel rims with 33"s and got worse mileage. I had my lead shoes on with those though.

Km2s are awesome for DD,i think the soft rubber also makes the ride better.I like them when i had them but went with the MTRs mainly because of the Kevlar sidewall.I had so much plugs on the sidewall on my KM2s.

I dont know about being the nicest for there is a ton of really nice rigs around here (Planmans rig first comes to mind) but Thanks

I have the 4" Rancho sport lift and it came with 5000 shocks.I really like the ride compared to the BDS suspension lift i used to have..it was really rough.All my info is in my Jeep profile if you want to see what else i did to it.
