Thanks, it was either that or the KM2's but I'm super stoked with my decision. It looks a 1000 times better with those compared to the 31's generic tires that were on it.

Yea it's pretty easy just make sure you put the "number range" pointing down for this number of teeth your new gear has, you will see what I'm talking about when you take the sensor out.

Those are my two choices also. How come you chose the duratracs? That's my decision too but I am just wondering why you chose them

What's the point of replacing the speedo gear?

To correct the speedometer being off due to larger tires.

I'm also going with Duratrac. I was going to do General Grabbers, but the Duratracs are cheaper and everyone raves about them. I should be getting them put on tomorrow.

^^ this I got tired of doing the math to figure out my gas mileage, I'm putting on my fuel log on my phone all the time so just let me know how many miles I go and if I see a significant drop in mileage I know something happen and I can fix it.

Maybe that's just me anal about my vehicles be running perfect I don't know or I'm just a little crazy??

My old Ranger had 31's on it for about 6 years. I never knew exactly how fast I was going and got tired of trying to figure out the mileage too. Not doing it with this vehicle. Not when I can fix it for about $50.

Finished painting the headlight bezels and putting on black decals. Hoping to black out the turn signal/parking light covers sometime in the next week or two!

Yeah I ordered it from Quadratec for like 45 dollars with the o-ring, I got free shipping by googling the part number followed by Quadratec

I bedlined my passenger side mirror mounts (had to take advantage of the 50 degree weather, right?). Rustoleum spray bedliner is AWESOME!! Now I've got the other side to do, as well as a few hundred other things to spray.......I'm hooked!!

Well after going back and forth it really came down to price. I mean I really liked the KM2's but the Durtracs are pretty comparable, and are rated for a little quieter on the road and she is my DD for now. I've heard nothing but good things about both sets but I don't think I have heard one legit complaint about the duratracs and again they were a lot cheaper.

That's pretty slick, I like your dog bone grab handle too
Did you bend up that little piece of metal for the hinge yourself?

Oh. I see. That's the same exact reason that I'm wanting duratracs

Not today but first time I was able to take pictures. Did a 3.25 lift, added my rear swingout with two jerry cans and the hijack. Also installed a cb and the 102 in cb whip.

I did my whole mirror assembly (except for the mirror of course). I also sprayed the bottom of my door jams where It gets scratched getting in and out... the back side of my gas tank skid plate thingy- the part you see from behind if the Jeep. And much like you, I've got a ton of other things I want to spray. It's like crack
