Btw, Jeep has been perfect.
I had drivers side head replaced and the fuel pump replaced so far.

Also on production numbers, just curiosity, does anyone here know how many were produced in AUTO or MAN transmission?

And yes I've had the code for the head problem, but it was reset by the dealership ...... Told to see if it happens again. I have 12500 miles on my 2012

Nice I like the tread of those. I just want an aggressive tread but nothing too severe like mud terrains. My friend has a set of nittos on hers and loves em!

jkaltitude Hi guys,

Have a JKU Altitude (ive posted on this thread about 2 months ago) and just checking in again... Want to upgrade my tires, but keep my stock rims. I see a few of you have done this, any suggestions? Want to run 33's with a 2'' lift.

Thanks

Too bad your so far away, I haven't seen another 2 door Altitude in these parts yet but I do know of one American from Buffalo that came across the river and bought one at the same dealership that I bought mine at in Fort Erie ..

Teraflex HD Tire carrier accessory mount from Rebel off road. Josh was very helpful

Don't worry I'll be painting that black soon.
Also painted the exhaust

Used gloss heat black.

Changed the fogs to CREE LED's

Attachment 386025

And lastly painted the ACE rock rails and fenders to body match with Gloss black. Also went back to OEM Stubby

Got it done from factory before I drove it on the road so it didn't need any cleaners or have any rust.
As far as i can tell they only sprayed the bottom of the body and the frame.

Yeah there the stock just smoked.

Dabrewski Looking good folks! So wild to see how these rigs morph over time. I definitely am a little envious at the folks that stuck with the original 18's.

Just picked up the DIY parts for the grill insert and will hope to have time to get that done soon. I can definitely say I've laid low over the summer, enjoying top off/doors off, but am ready to get back to some trail riding in the Fall coming up here. Hope everyone is well!

I also got the tires flipped over so the white letters are on the inside.
Tinted the front windows, undercoated it, and painted the whole exhaust with black header paint so it doesn't rust out on me.(And so my muffler doesn't look silver from the back)

JKjingle Havnt posted mine in here yet so I think it's time. 2.5" RK flex system, 35" FA's. Want to regear and throw a locker in the rear soon but I'm forcing myself to put $10k down on it first. Didn't want to get rid of the rims but 18" rubber is expensive and I don't like spacers. Also want tire carrier more armor and maybe a drag link flip. It never ends and I had no idea I was going to be going this far into modding!

Those are smoked out with Nightshades very easy to do. Took us all of 10 min and that was just waiting between coats.

I've talked to a few Jeepers and they have all had negative reviews regarding the recon lights.
