Nice. Like the Savegres a lot. Looking forward to seeing the rest if them mounted.
Gosh the 33s look small now.

OK! Heres proof im stupid! Rushed home from work , rushed to dealer, forgot key for locks!!! (left it at my compressor in my air gun)
Anyway tomorrow is the day. Got the spare though!! So i had to play with it a bit!
First off, the last set of Mopar/AEV wheels came with silver Jeep caps and yellow AEV caps, these came with cool caps!!
Now the spare I fooled with!!

|LemonLite||This is such a great 2 door build.|

|dvdsjk||Ok, wheels and tires are in at the dealer! Time to go 35's. Got a great deal on the AEV's I wanted as well as the DuraTracs!|

I personally felt I went off track and weighed her down a bit. Time for a diet!!

Spare tire carrier arrived! Now to fab it to the bed!!! Too bad the RR corners are weeks away! But good things come to those who wait!!! I still don't like it though !!!!

|dvdsjk||Defnitely going to 35" though!|

|mgola27||Cool idea. Are you keeping the Pintlers or going with something else?|
|11-26-2013 11:29 PM|
Fooling around with a pre runner look. Looking into tire carriers that will fit the bed. Also ordering river raider crusher corners. Their the only ones who make them to order without the hinge cut outs if you like. Tire looks a bit lost. The 35's will fill it better!

|mgola27||I'll be interested in seeing what you do with this... Like the idea.|

Let the De-build begin!!
First, lose the heavy rear bumper and tire carrier. BFH time! (excuse the salt, that time of year!)
|11-16-2013 11:01 AM|
Ok, Heres the Jeep now. Going to start a de-build :cwm13: you might say? Right now i feel it looks like a 4x4 parts store ad! Going minimal. Shedding large bumpers, changing tires wheels etc. want to lighten it up a bit. Anybody in the NEPA area watch the craiglist!!!!

It was my decision to keep them straight. Not sure why. I guess I just thought of it for the utility purpose and didn't really go for the visual! I know what you mean though! I do think it will blend better once the black krinkle coat is on it. I'm also taking my spare up higher (I can raise it almost 5") to shorten the gap in the back..

Very, very cool!
I only have some design critique... so feel free to ignore what follows:
Not to take away from this project in any way, but if you tweaked the design a bit, it could look more like it belongs on the Jeep. The two vertical supports look a little out of place since they are so straight. If the one next to the cab flowed with the curve of that cab, and then curve the rear supports similarly, it would really make it look less boxy.
Of course, I have no idea if that would compromise the load capacity of the rack, or if the equipment needed to make those types of bends is more specialized than what is typical.
I'm just looking at the visual aspects of this.
It's still a great project!
