Mine came with a foam type gasket that goes there.

Sadly I washed off all my mud art from this weekend @ Rausch Creek. I didn't want to, but I needed to clean it up so I can re-install the fender flare I lost, and get ready to install my 18/59 springs and Rubicon shocks! So it was sad, but it'll be worth it!

Does it shake like hell when you are on the road? I purchased a similar one and it is useless

Spidertrax are the better ones to go with, just make sure to use antiseize and make sure you torque them then drive about 50 miles, and torque them again. Really important, Don't want to loose a tire while on the road. Won't be fun.
I'm running the inch and a half ones on my stocks with 35' at2's. makes a big difference.

Just installed 2.5" rough country lift on my daughters jeep. Looks great!! is it really that important to align the front end? Jeep drives great and steering wheel is centered. What could be off with the alignment?

Looks awesome! Wish I could pull that off. I like the "WRANGLER" print on the hood too

I'm fighting the war against chrome and about to paint the "Jeep" hood emblem. Anyone have any tips or care to share how they did it?

Some people Plasti Dip them, but I went the easy route & just bought one from my dealership in black. Paid around $8.00 (with my discount) for it & ended up buying 2 more of them for the sides.

Try this.

Use a toothpick for the small areas, not a screw driver like the video.

I got the 9500 Tiger Shark, supposed to be submersible, but anyway the winch plate did not flush. I got longer bolts for the plate and got 10.5 or something like that instead of the 8.8 metric bolts.
