Talking My Granite Sand Beast

My first month into my 2014 Wrangler Sahara, Granite with granite hardtop, leather, premium sound, and I'm going to do the rest. Here's what I've got so far. Open Country AT 35x12.5's
1 and 2 inch spacers (not ready for the full lift, 75% road rager-plenty of space for these tires even with some decent flex out in the sand), went with KO (or DV8) front and rear bumpers with a hitch
TUFF Light low watt LED's on the front which I spliced right into my fog wiring, no prob. More than enough light. Might go with the KO nerf bars next as they've got greata customer service, a great product, and an amazing price. Local company in Riverside. Thule rack for my surf and paddleboards-solid, clamps right into the hard top. No winch yet. We'll see if the pics turn out. Super stoked about my new rig. It's my 3rd jeep in 18 years. One of the pics shows my exposed Vaccuum pump. No biggie right?.

Thanks!
If anyone was interested.
and the back bumper with hitch, KO, love it
\Any thoughts on where I should go with the rear axle ratio? Factory is 3.21s on mine, considering 4.56 vs. 4.10

Is it just me or is your rear bumper sagging on the drivers side compared to the passenger side? (Body line)

I've got 4.56's in my auto with 35's. I am really thinking that I am going to go to 37's with them. It seems to crawl just fine but my rpm's are a bit higher than I like. 91 freeway your doing 75 to 80 and thats 3000 rpm. It kills the gas mileage. 65mph the mileage jumps right back up at 2500 rpm. I have KM2's which have measured a bit less than 35.

Yes, thank you, and a price of around $3000 sound right? crazy.
And yes, it's a great color but I'll warn everyone right now, it shows EVERY SPECK OF DIRT.

Wow, thank you, great eye. I'm taking it off tomorrow to see what is up. Maybe that's what you get for a $300 bumper?

Few bolt adjustments fixed that in about 5 minutes. Oewheels direct service was great.
