2014 Jeep Wrangler

Traded the original wheels for some black Sevegre and a power dome hood. Been gone for three weeks and finally got home to pick it up. Waiting for the Duratracs now from my friend who works for Goodyear. And then that will be it for the most part until spring!

Something is out of place. Those "original" wheels don't come on a Rubicon.

Noticed that too. Im thinking maybe he's using those stockers as a temporary set and traded the original ruby wheels? Thats my guess.

Correct. I was traveling when the Jeep arrived and had our shop swap out the origianl Rubi Wheels with a Base Jeep we have on the lot that had these steelies on it. Got 5 Sevegre Wheels and the Power Dome Hood on trade(I am the GM of my father's Jeep dealership). My best friend is a Goodyear rep and I hadn't got the tires until this Monday. But I am thinking of selling the hood to a customer and ordering the Metal Cloak lift kit for $1250, about what I can sell the hood for.

33" Duratracs on 17x8.5 AEV Savegre Wheels. Thanks, Thinking about replaceing the shocks with 10A JKU shocks.

The 10a shocks and Rubi shocks are no different. Both a great shock. Only reason to replace them would be if you're lifting it.

That's right, I mean coils, but I'm going to just save up for a MC system.

Love the hood. Need to quit looking at these threads. Every time I do I end up spending more money.

Even as a dealer, Chrysler still screws me! Sent me the wrong GD springs. If anyone has a set of rear 10A springs for a hitch, I'll take them!

Got the 10A springs on and it handles better and not so bouncy. Loving the topless life.

Clay, how much lift did you end up with out of the 10A springs. I'm thinking of doing this on my JK Polar because I don't want to do enough of a lift that I have to start changing other components. Just springs and maybe shocks (only if needed). Your response will be appreciated.
