Looks great.

In your sig it says you have 18" wheels but aren't those 17" OEMs?

hdrider 10-01-2011 09:48 PM

Yes,,,I need to change my signiture,,,it's still for my 08 that's now gone,,,sorry.

nwapache 10-01-2011 10:27 PM

I like them with the stockers, thanks for posting

DrHolliday 10-01-2011 10:35 PM

Do you have spacers on your wheels? I like the look with the stock wheels still.

Rogerg 10-01-2011 10:36 PM

I have to admit the stock wheels are nice looking.I still have mine and might use it on my TJ someday.

Your Jeeps looks really good.How do you like the Nitto's?

DonC72 10-01-2011 10:57 PM

I wish 35s would fit under my JKU, that does look great. All I have is a 1.5 leveling kit. What do those tires run in that size?

CaptFireball 10-01-2011 11:01 PM

Have you calibrated the speedometer yet?
 
Nice Pics. I have a 2012 Black JKU Rubi and I'm thinking about installing the BDS-Suspension 3" Lift (with all the available options from BDS) and Toyo 35" Tires. I haven't selected a wheels yet. Your JKU looks good with the stock wheels. Maybe I'll keep the stock wheels.

I have three questions if you have time:

1) Have you calibrated the speedometer for 35" tires yet? I see that HyperTech is advertising for the 2012 year model Jeep but not sure if its really available yet for their device. Any weird effects with your auto transmission?

2) Did you have any issues with the lift install effecting your Driveshafts? I've heard anything over 3" you may have to replace the driveshafts if you plan to go off road.

3) Are those extra backup lights on the rear bumper or just additional lights? I want to do this as well. Where did you mount the switch for those lights? Did you use the Daystar Switch Panel or did you drill into the dash panel?

Thanks for your time.

They fit that vehicle very well :thumb: Nice job and enjoy the ride.

Smedzjk 10-01-2011 11:17 PM

I must say, your Jeep is an inspiration for me. I had it in my mind that when the time came when I could buy new tires, I would need to buy new wheels also. The stock wheels look great with your setup. How do you like the ARB front bumper? Have you done any crawling with it on yet?

Rockcrawler2012 10-01-2011 11:31 PM

Hdrider,

What suspension set up did you put on? I plan on getting a new one next June and this looks just what I had pictured.

I am running 35's with stock suspension and stock, unmodified fenders... you'll be just fine:thumb:

FYI AEV should have the updated ProCal for the 2012 by mid October .

Thanks,,
I will try to answer the questions/

I have not calibrated the speedo yet, and it seems it is off by 5 mph according to my Garnin hand held unit

No drive shaft problem yet but it only has 300 miles on it and no real off roading yet.

The lights on the rear LoD bumper are extra lights. I put the switches for the 4 KC lights up fromt and the back lights in the panel just under the steering wheel. I will ghet a couple pictures and post them.

I love the nitto trail grapplers,, and yes I put 1 1/2" spacers on the wheels. I had the nitto trail grapplers on my 08 sahara and like them so much I got a set for the 2012. The are quiet on the road,, clean well when mudding and grip great. Have not done any roacks crawling with them Mainly trails and mud in my area.

The front and rear bumpers were on my 08 sahara also. I liked them so I just switched them over. I ALMOST concidered going with a stubby on the front this time but decided not to.

The lift is a 3" Teraflex with 4 flex arms and Bilstein 5100 shocks. I should have and will put the leveling kit on it also. I did put extended brake lines on up front. I didn't but am ordering tomorrow the fromt adjustable track bar. And I have a set of ARB diff covers to put on but want to get at least 500 miles on it before cputting them on.
I'm also going to order the ACE rock rails this week then I think it will be ready for the trails once I hit 1000 miles.
I think that answered all of the questions,, if not,, ask away.

CaptFireball 10-02-2011 10:49 AM

Thanks HDRIDER for answering the questions. Enjoy your ride.

Even though you are able to use the ProCal on your 2012 for what you listed, a 2012 equipped with an auto cannot regear. The current ProCal can't help. AEV is making changes so that the ProCal can adjust the 2012 auto to fix regearing issues. If you use an older ProCal and regear, your auto will go into limp mode and won't work correctly.

It must not venture too far from the mall :whistling:

KSCRUDE 10-05-2011 06:44 PM

Looks good. The tires look to be too wide for the wheels though. And I don't like the spacer look as it puts the tires outside the fenders and will sandblast everything in there path. Going by your nav what is rpm at 70 mph. Just curious and doubt if you need to regear.

The nav must get the speed from the ECM
Mine showed incorrect until I calibrated the speedometer
