Hi Everyone,

My first post, but i've been lurking and researching for a couple of weeks now. I ordered my CG on 16 August. I've received one email from Jeep that they are getting the parts ordered for production. Once it built and delivered, I'll be trading in my 2010 Mountain Edition that just hit 3K yesterday :-)

I got the max travel with Bilstein 5100 shocks. I'm going to go with 35's, but I can't decide between 15 or 17 inch wheels.I'm learning towards the 15 mostly because of the 600 dollar difference.

Thats what I'm looking at too - with the Bilsteins. I currently have 33 in. Duratracs on 15's and I'd like to keep my wheels & just get 35's but they don't make a 35 Duratrac in a 15. All new 16's & new 35 Duratracs or find a new 35 tire I like that comes in a 15? Not enjoying the thought of either one. But I'm gonna run my 33's for as long as I can stand it anyway...

I'm going with the RK 2.5" Max Travel Pro with Fox IFP 2.0 shocks myself. I'm definitely going with the BFG KM2 35" tires with some 15" wheels. Like you, I'm going with a 15" setup to save over $100 and 7 pounds per tire. That's not even considering the extra weight a 17" wheel would add. I'm trying HARD to keep the weight down on this heavy pig.

I'm heavily leaning towards the Black Rock Vipers in tungsten color or the Ultra Nomad. It's the hardest decision ever!

Help me choose please.

Black Rock Viper





Ultra Nomad

One would think that Jeep would spray one to see how it looks. That's too bad.

Kramer2k- Those black rock vipers are really nice. Picking a set of wheels and tires is so hard. There are so many options its crazy. I think im going to go with the 15 inch MB72 in black with 35 goodyear mtr-kevlar.

Yeah, I'm pretty much sold on the Vipers.

But now, I'm rethinking my tire choice. The 15" Viper is 27 pounds. The 35x12.5x15 BFG KM2 is 62 pounds, and the Goodyear MT/R w/Kevlar of the same size weighs in at 67 pounds, only five pounds more.

I like the aggressive design of the Goodyear MT/R, so now I'm leaning that way instead of the KM2.

Now that I'm cooling to the tire of your choice Ken, what do you have to say about that!?

Anyone else have any thoughts on that setup? Black Rock Viper 15" with the 35" Goodyear MT/R w/ Kevlar.

I misspoke. The 15x8" Black Rock Viper is 24 pounds, not 27 pounds.

I don't think you can go wrong with either of those two tires. Those are the same ones I was trying to decide between. The thread design on the mtr is bad ass. A few of my friends run them and they are really happy with them.

I'm sure they have and have been waiting to see if any pics will leak. I have no doubt they sprayed a couple pre-production models. If nothing else, they have to have a couple pics ready to go for the press launch/photos page.

I'm not brave enough to order completely unseen, but will make a decision once I see the Jeep pics on the website.

I HATE the waiting!!!!!

I told myself I was not going to obsess over the build of my new Jeep. I purposely didn't ask the dealer for a VON or anything. I was just gonna call the dealership in 2 months if I haven't heard anything but they must have included my email address cuz I just got my 'your order is being processed' email. So much for that eh?

You guys are brave for ordering Jeeps in a color that nobody has ever seen on an actual vehicle yet.
