I'm only running 33's thats why I am not sure if I want the 3.5'' metal cloaks. How was the install on the PSC Fenders? Did you use their inner fenders? Can you post pics of how they look under the hood? I read you have to drill your own holes for the accessories. You can email them if you like nlopez2518@icloud.com

Sorry for the delay. I've been super busy lately. The PSC fenders were not that bad to install. When I did it, PSC hadn't released their inner fenders yet, so I used a set of stock inner fenders. Instead of chopping up my red ones, I actually picked up a set of green ones, so that I could sell mine and re-coup some cost. Everything under the hood is in it's stock location.

They're a whole lot better than 33's with 3.07 gears! No, seriously.....they're not bad. If I'd known I was going to step up to 35's, I would've done more research, and considered 4.88s. Maybe I'd have gone the same route; maybe I wouldn't have. I really don't know. Overall, I'm happy with it.

Not trying to be nosy, but how much do have invested in your mods? I just bought my first tj, 2005 that looks just like yours did stock and wanting to do similar mods.

Dude I love your jeep! I saw it the other day at Cars and Coffee and was inspired. Really liked your cooler speaker system idea.

Sorry the pictures are blurry, they were taken on my old phone which had a scratch on the camera lens

Hey! I'm new to the forum and jeeps in general, I've always wanted one and I'm getting a 97 tj in a few weeks. It already has a 4 inch lift on it and I was looking at new wheels and tires. I love the revolvers you got on it! Are those the 15x10 5x4.5 OS -43 BS 3.75? I don't really know much about offset and back spacing for wheels. Wondering if you could help? I plan on running them with 35x12.50 interco super swamped trXus MT's. Just wanted to make sure I get the right wheels.

Yes. They're 15x10 5 on 4.5, 3.75" backspacing.

Well, MudBug is going to get some changes....but I'm not sure what, yet. I like the suspension, but I've been eyeballing a GenRight 3-Link/ 4-Link setup with coilovers, and I really like it. I've been thinking about going that route. Then I ran into the owner of a local 4x4 shop who made me an offer that's hard to refuse....They've supercharged a few JKs, but no TJs. He's willing to make me a smoking deal on a Sprintex Supercharger. More power is definitely appealing......

New changes happened this week. I dumped the XRC rear bumper in favor if a PSC with tire carrier. We flush mounted a set of Rigid SRM lights into it, and put another set on top. These are wired to my sPOD as aux lights, and don't come on in reverse. I also decided to install a Sprintex supercharger. It's a nice little bump in power.

I haven't updated the thread in a couple of months, so here goes.....still working out the tune on the supercharger. Continues to throw codes, and CEL light wants to come on. It also has a miss/ stumble around 2200 rpm.

Next round of mods starts this weekend, before I head to Wheeling For The Wounded on 9/19. This weekend's work includes: swapping of the JKS 1.25" body lift for a Rokmen .5" lift, installation of Rokmen high clearance fuel tank skid, new u joints on axles, new ball joints, installation of Vanco BBK, flush radiator, flush diffs, install Novak cable shifter, and replace clutch......I think I'm gonna be a busy guy!
