Yes I do. GY Duratracs 33" 305/70/16 on MB 72 wheels. Took out today for a ride thought the woods and had a blast! A few close calls with some timber, but escaped unharmed (this time).

Added the Mopar door sills. I like them. Easy install and look like they belong on it.

wiped off the interior with my microfiber towel. since the interior has been properly treated with 303 2 times in the last month, it wiped off very nicely.

Thanks a lot monkers, I appreciate it.

How much are you trimming off the fenders? I've been readin about that on jk-forum and am going to be doing it soon as i don't want to spend another small fortune on flatties and am afraid i'm going to rub a little under flex

Yes, the three piece system. Install wasn't bad except a couple of my factory bolt heads were beat up pretty bad from rocks. No more holding back afraid to catch the tranny cooler line on something!

Went out wheeling greens and blue at Rausch Creek. Crushed the front passenger side of the bumper and cracked both steps.

Looks like I finally have an excuse to get the new bumper and rails now.

Who needs a jack when you have a crane. Added some coil spaces to the front of the 3 inch lift to level it out.

hmmm, wonder if I could get the boys at work to hook me up when I put my lift in. lol Bet the boss would just love me using a $3 mil dollar piece of equipment for that. lmao

I picked up a new air compressor yesterday, and finally geot the Teraflex kit in today. Still waiting on the shocks to come in, but hubby won't be home for another month so it's all going in the shed till then. Gonna have all the boys come over for beer while we put it in. Need more than just me to take shifts wrangling the midgets inside the house while we have the Jeep up on the jack stands.

By the way, nice build on your JK!! I should have gone through your build before asking about the way you connected your tow bar!--I have the Roadmaster Sterling tow bar and the "hidden brackets" on my Element and it looks like your Crossbar and connecting bracket is the way to go if not mounting from the "d" rings. I too am thinking even with the 2.5" lift and 35" tires that I would be two high to connect to the "D" rings? I surely couldn't hurt to add that .250 crossmember, adding protection to the steering components.
Thanks again!
Tim

Cool

Installed a Starr "X" Stationary Bottle Opener.

I have cleverly modified the bottle opener to no longer be stationary however, with the application of a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon!

The test bottle of grape Crush was very satisfying.
