Sleeved, Gusseted, CA Skids, SS Relo, Synergy Ball Joints, MC game changer lite. I think that's it... Oh yeah, had to put in a fox ss because the synergy tie rod mount wouldn't fit the stock.

I would appreciate it because I'm planning on getting the same bumper. I like how I can get the tire carrier later if I would ever decide to go bigger in tire size. Which is a likeliness in the future... Haha

One of the ladies working at the shop, came up and asked me, "Are you waiting on a Hummer?" I replied, "No, but for future reference, what would you charge?" She paused for a second, with a puzzled look on her face, then laughed and slap me on the shoulder. It's a good thing I do a lot of business there, I could have gotten into trouble I guess.
Nice!

SoFla, can you tell me what size tires those are? And do you have a lift on your Jeep? Also, what brand/size are the rims? And where did you get them from? That's exactly what I'm looking for to put on mine

Has anyone put the Smittybuilt XRC M.O.D. front bumper on their JK? Looking for pics of it with the full width end plates.

Actually a few pages back (809) you can see some with full length and one with no corners and cut fenders.

If you look at my profile pic you will see the center section. I have the full width end plates too. I haven't put them on my new jeep yet. Had a 2012 6 speed but wife was getting pissed cause she couldn't drive it so I traded it in for a 2013 auto and now she loves the jeep too. A few issues I had with my bumper was the center section was catching on a welding tab on the drivers side of the frame. I took a grinder to it and sprayed the raw metal and then it fit good. Next issue was you can only put 3 bolts in on each frame rail set up for 4 but can only access 3. Someone else had the same issue but it had plenty of strength for heavy duty winching. Next the full width end plates came with extremely cheap fog lights and I can't find a good 2" replacement for it yet. The figment on the end plates was not good to say the least. I made it work but drilled and tapped all the mounting points on the bumper and the cover plates. I am gonna be welding them on and shortening them when I put them on my new one so I can keep the fog lights and line them up better with the fenders. I will try to find the pics of the whole thing for you but I don't know how to post them. Finally the bull bar I got didn't line up either it seemed warped so I had to drill and tap and use washers as spacers to get it on tight. I hope this helps.

They look like the "Combo" as they have been named by other forum members. 33x12.50x15 Goodyear Duratrac's on 15x8 Level 8 Trackers from Discount Tire. I have the same wheels and tires on my 2013 JKU. I had them on before it was lifted and had no rubbing at all. Great wheel and tire combo. Here are pics of them on mine before the lift and after the lift...

No lift...


With 2.5" lift...

Discount Tires Direct had some great rebates last week so that's why I bought them sooner than I should have, but I think we all do that when it comes to our Jeeps. Lol! After the rebates they came in around $1200 for the entire package,(5 wheels, 5 tires, 24 Gorilla locking lugs and came mounted and balanced ready to bolt on)

Wheels are Level 8 Trackers 15x8, tires are Goodyear Duratracs 33x12.5x15. I have the Teraflex leveling kit with the pucks, not the springs.

Only drove it about 5 miles so far with the new wheels and tires,but the jeep feels great. Not much different than the stock ride.

Thanks Sofla....I've been talking to a guy I know that works at Belle Tire & he said that the 15's will hit the calipers....is this true? Do I need to get spacers or anything with 15's? I've got a LOT to still learn about Jeeps, but this forum has been a HUGE help

These wheels give plenty of clearance for the calipers. Not even close to hitting. Other 15's have that issue, but not these which is the reason I believe everyone goes with them. Talk to DTD, you can't beat there prices and they are very knowledgable.

As long as the backspacing is right, they won't rub on the calipers.

Attention Jeepers. Rumor going around that brown Santa may be striking soon. I work at Post Office and one of the elves who comes to our office mentioned it today. So better order your jeep parts now.

Thanks for all the help & info, Sofla. I just contacted our local Discount Tire & they want $1747 for the same set-up, but it would be $1547 after 2 - $100 rebates....seems kinda high to me

BTW, do you have a link to the Teraflex Leveling Kit you used with the pucks?
