zigsrig It was a good weekend with my Rig.

Installed my AEV tire carrier



Then went exploring... Photo nerds may recognize the Crystal Mill. This is why I LOVE Colorado.

Looks like you had some fun. Your Jeep looks great muddy!


Question for anyone. Do any of you have a good technique for cleaning the dust off the cloth interior and roll bar pads? I have been on some seriously dusty trail rides and the inside is a mess and has a coat of dust everywhere.

No, mine were non-painted.

Sorry for the delay. This forum only sends me notifications every few weeks. I have it set to notify me immediately.

At that point I was fearing many more weeks before coming upon another GCM but the very same dealership was able to find me another with same options but several thousand miles LESS. The picture above is actually a photo of the one that got away but the one I'm getting looks exactly the same. I am excited to join the community of owners

Congrats and

jgleason15 Beautiful. Where is this? Color has started here yet.

TheGibson We went on a color tour today. Ended up getting way above treeline and saw some amazing views.

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.

AD80 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
09-15-2014 10:41 AM
Jurfie Hit 13,000km (almost 8100 mi) yesterday...drove off the lot April 1.

BCT Took delivery on March 20th... Turned 8500 miles this weekend

iLion 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!
09-14-2014 09:37 PM
Granite Rooster 9,700 miles. Picked it up Nov 26th- ish
09-14-2014 09:21 PM
TheGibson Just turned 4k this weekend. Got it in June
09-14-2014 08:21 PM
Sucker Punch 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

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.

09-11-2014 09:42 PM
Sucker Punch 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.

Granite Rooster About to hit the 5k mile mark on my tires. Will be doing this rotation

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!

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!!
