Exactly .... that is why I am thinking about them. I may have misled you by saying "for easier entry". By that I mean, the subtle protrusion of the Rubi Rails will allow my leg more clearance as I step from ground directly into the floor in the cab. A more aggressive rail will protrude out more, and would hinder my leg's motion.

I won't be doing vicious rock crawling but I will be doing trails and water (mud) ... so I'm hoping that the subtle protrusion of the Rubi Rails might be just enough to deflect smallish pebbles and debris, and door dings at the Mall, from chipping the paint. Also, I like that they cover the "pinch seam" for a tighter appearance.

photos from Ouray trip last week

Already planning another trip there next year. with no lift and after market skid protection, there were trails that would have torn up my fenders, etc. Great trip though.

Man, I would love to take the Jeep out west some day and drive thru the mountains! Creek crossings in the Jeep = Fun.

Ok I'm a newbie and just recently (1 month ago) traded in my 14 X3 for a 14 granite crystal metallic JKURX. Today I just brought her home after getting wheels and tires. Last week I put on a 2.5" BDS suspension lift.

Before and after photos attached. What do you all think? I think it turned out nice. The wheels are Worx Beast 803's with 285/70r17 Dick Cepek Fun Country tires.

Looks better than an X3 (but I'm biased), and it'll get you more places, too! Welcome to the Granite club!!

Anyone doing the 5 tire rotation? Taking mine in today. Think I'm gonna give it a shot. I wasted a perfectly good spare on my old YJ. Gonna try to get some use out of this spare.

Yes... I do (5) tire rotations just like your picture. I believe it allows everything to wear evenly. I did it with my old YJ too. Good luck!

Got them rotated and balanced today. Looking forward to seeing how the 5 tire rotation will work out in the long run. Took it to a local Discount Tire and met a couple Jeepers that work there.

I did my rotation yesterday.. put about 100 miles on it today. No excess road noise or tire bump. Tires were brand new when installed and did the rotation at about 5k miles. 315/70R17 duratracs

Same here about the road noise, etc. Couldn't tell any difference. I think I had a little less than 5,000 miles when I rotated mine. I went ahead and paid for the lifetime rotate and balance at discount tire. I'm gonna try to rotate them every 3500 to 5000 miles to keep all the tread wear as even as possible on all 5 tires.

What kind of miles have you all put on your granite jeeps? I've go a little more than 8,600 miles on mine since I picked it up October 31st 2013.

Taking the Jeep on it's first beach trip in October

I tried to order Wrangler Sport S in Granite (with manual tranny and tons of S options), but not happening this time around apparently (9/2014). What a disappointment. I am very stuck on granite, so am looking for a one yr old or last yrs on lot somewhere. I'm totally obssessed with this, so if there is one out there... I will find it!

Just passed 8800 miles on my weekend trip to Jefferson, CO. Great wear so far on the stock tires. I drove mine of the lot in February 2014

I have about 4000 on the clock. Picked it up July 3rd.

Here is a quick pick topless, enjoying the last few weeks of good weather before winter sets in here in Colorado.

I see from other posts that you are running the 3.5" AEV lift with spacers behind the stock wheels (which I like too). Did you have to do any drivetrain mods up front? I have been looking at the Rancho 3" and the Old Man Emu kits for my 2-door but I want to stay low enough to keep the driveline stock and fit 35" tires

AFE Y pipe makes room for the front drive shaft to not rub on anything with the lift.

Other than that, the drive line is stock.
