Nice looking rig man!!
I was having trouble with a bumper bolt the other day (live in an apartment now and all tools are buried in storage building) so I went to Jeepetos. He took it off and made sure the other bolts were loose. No charge. I know it was an easy to get to bolt, didn't take him but a few minutes to gather tools, take bolt out and put tools up but thought it was cool he stopped what he was doing to help and said no charge.

That looks like the rti ramp they built for the t4t run. Good to see it's getting used!

Once I finally get around to the regear (just so damn pricey), they're where I'm planning to get it done.

Yeah, with the 3.8 and a 6speed, the 4.56 is a little much for the 33s as a daily driver but probably right on for 35.

i hear you. i will say this though. i regeared to 4.88 before i put the 37s on, and i got better gas mileage then, than i did with the 3.73 and 35s. something to think about.

the 4.56 might not be too bad with the 33s. i suspect you wont have any trouble selling them though... if you decide to go the 35 route.

You've got an auto. There's a huge difference between the 2 and 3 pedals on the gear charts. On the 33s, I'll probably be over 3k rpm at 70 in 6th.

Oh well. First things first I'm going to need to put my new springs on first. Got some rk 1.5 triple rates coming in (should keep me at 2.5" with the 2 door but with better travel and ride than my rancho front and spacer kit). I've got a while before gearing happens.

Nice rig. How much did you get for your "old" 30? Hows the backspacing on those wheels for that size tire? I really like the 7069... looks like it would go good with powder-coated fenders and Copperhead Pearl
The tires are 12.5" wide, right?

I ended up getting $800 for my 'old' D30. Helped offset the cost of the PR44 a little.

Backspacing is a little tight with the 7069's, Still rubbing my LCA's at full steering lock. I'll have Josh mess with the steering stops some more.

If I had to do it again I would have gone with the ATX Slab's.. They cost 3X as much though... lol

Yes 12.5" on the Nitto 37's

Jeff's Jeep Yard has done all my work. They did a complete rebuild on a custom 79 CJ7 for me and did all the upgrades on my 14 JKU. Jeff has always been accommodative and stands by his work. Bruiser Conversions is his satellite company so those looking for a Cummins 4BT, LS3, or other motor upgrade, should check it out. A lot of it is madness!
