I don't know what he used, but I plan on using plasti-dip when I get around to doing mine.

Well, I may not be getting the Grabbers. I called my buddy at Goodyear to get a quote on having them mounted and he came back with an offer on Duratracs that would cost me $440 less than the Grabbers.........

From the big share of members on here I think you are coming out waaaaaaaayyyyyyy ahead. I have heard nothing but good things about the Duratracs.

I am on my 3rd set of BFG's but when they are gone or I go to 33's Duratracs for sure!!

I understand they "clean out" better in the snow.

Just had Goodyear order me a set of 5 Duratracs in 33x12.5x15 and I placed an order for a set of Soft 8's for them to mount them on.

In other news, the wide fender flares came in yesterday, the Rugged Ridge armor kit came in today, the dash cluster arrived and I pick up the rest of the brake parts from AZ on the way home.

It's gonna be a full weekend.

Thx I love it! Did it two days ago. I used flat black Plasti-Dip.
Did u see the black wheels and grill too?
It gives our little red jeeps a nice sharp look. I'm loving it a lot!

I was wondering if that's what it was.

I have some black rims on order and I have thought about the black in the hood. Grill I'm not sure about. I am adding the Rugged Ridge armor set so I plan to see how that looks. Doing the grill too may be too much. But if did do it I could always peel it off if I didn't like it. lol

I have 33x12.5x15 Duratracs at Goodyear waiting for Cragar Soft 8's that are coming from Summit so that will be resolved by the end of the week.

Sweet. Mine is "out for delivery" right now.

How long should it take me to put this thing on? I do have someone to help.

Not quite sure where you're located but it's ideal to install it on a warm day. Mine took me at least couple of hours due to cold temp, even with a heated garage.

Most trouble I had was keeping the top to stay on the windshield channel so it's ideal to have another body helping you out.

And lastly, don't force the zippers. If it's not closing easily, readjust the your placements and do it in incrememts! good luck!
