I have the rugged ridge ones....they look good but the passenger side one is useless because it's a flat mirror.....had to replace it with a convex mirror that doesn't match :/

Thanks! I'm thinking of doing the same thing.

Finn Sizzle I took mine off and never put them back on, I did check when I pulled them and yup, mine are in bad shape too.

active_Eng29 Did anyone change their front bumper end cap bolts. Took over a year, but finally took mine off. Like everyone else's, mine were stripped too. Issue 1: They are way too long for the application they are being used for. Issue 2: They aren't metric grade 10.9. Mopar says that they are BOLT Torx M10X1.50X42.00. Bumber, MC6 - BOLT, Torx - 68231973AA | Mopar The closest shorter ones I can find are BMW seat bolts http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-E36-Seat...item43b25667b7, but they are expensive.

Having a lot of trouble finding M10 Torx screws. Thinking about replacing them with grade 10.9 flange heads. Only $7.94 for 25 of them on McMaster. McMaster-Carr

getahemi Here it is with my 285's on it. Not really sure if I should install the 3/4 inch front spacers or not.

The right 33's look good but it depends on what springs came on your 10A.

Front 006's and rear 009's sit a tad higher... these were installed in the first half of the build. Plus the front springs settle more because the shocks are valved for comfort - has more nose dive than I like. That pronounces the front rake some when parked.

I believe a set of King OEM's valved correctly will make the stock suspension work really nice.

This is a stock 10A with 33" tires and 1.25" wheel spacers.

That looks good. You make a lot of sense. I believe mine will be later in the build order because it got registered last June to a chrysler exec. I will check the springs tho to be sure and will post pics later today. I'm about to go pick it up.

Got pics?

j2dna I was in the same boat. I had an appointment to get the lift/tires/wheels done and considered canceling it because I really liked the look and ride of it stock. They are great Jeeps modded or stock.

I don't mean to get people riled up but I believe you should keep it stock.

Ricks Rubicon Congrats! I love mine.

getahemi I got lucky and found this at a Jeep dealer about two hours away. I'm getting it on Friday. It's got 13000 miles and was chrysler exec driven. Never off road and completely stock. Got 5k over wholesale for mine with some mods so I'm quite happy. I bought a black automatic last year because I couldn't find an anvil with a six speed but I just didn't like it.

You might want to look into the retractable step option. The 10th anniversary rockrails stick out a bit, and it would be awkward if you were to find a compatible step.

If I'm confused and you are talking about the standard Rubi rails that don't stick out past the door, then I haven't heard of steps that will work with them. Ace Rock sliders can be installed with the Regular Rubicon factory rails, hit they aren't really steps. Some people have put gritty tape on portions to provide traction and use them as steps.

Most frame mount rails would work... But the factory rails are going to take up real estate on the steps of most. Why not replace them with a set of slider steps?
