Rear Bumper...FINALLY!

This was actually done last week just before the ice storm started (ice pellets were dropping just as I was finishing). Today was the first chance that I had to take a couple of pictures. Rancho...

Which bumper?

There are a ridiculous number of choices for bumpers (front or rear)! As for recommendations, that is purely subjective. You need to first determine what you want to do with you rig. Do you want a...

Plastic corner strips

I have never removed my plastic corner strips. Please understand, I'm NOT knocking anyone for having done so. However, the top was designed to be tight. By eliminating the corners you end up with a...

Trektop NX

First, I hope that you mean the Trektop NX. It's a very good alternative to the full soft top. It eliminates a lot of hardware, looks good, and saves a fair amount of cash. Yes, the first install can...

After almost two years with 2.5" I find myself more often wishing that I had gone 3.5" or even 4". I don't regret the 315s. 35" +/- is a good tire size for my needs. But, a little more lift would be...

I also have the Currie Antirock. YES, there is significantly more body roll! You no longer have the same "planted" feeling as with the stock sway bar. That being said, it's NOT a "white knuckles" or...

15, 16, 17...Ugh!

First, I totally get that 15" is a LOT cheaper. As long as you get aluminum rims (many steel have shape irregularities that can cause problems rubbing you calipers) they SHOULD fit (NOT guaranteed)....

Who's the best?

I think that it's already established that the "answer" is very subjective! I am really not aware of any definitive head to head test. So, what you do need to do is chose a company with a strong...

Since you asked...

Let's first deal with the 35" vs. 37". If you're ALREADY thinking 37", then SKIP 35"!!! That's a LOT of money in tires!!! Build for 37" and get them.

Now, let's deal with your other questions.

Tire Sizes

A 315/75R16 has a measurement of 34.6". However, that measurement is prior to air and load. Also, like many others, I'm only running 30 psi (some run even less air pressure). So, the tire is given a...

ACTUAL measurement...

I had to find the ACTUAL measurement for my AEV Procal. Per AEV instructions, the measurement taken at the front wheel, and under load (installed) (@ 30 psi) was 33.75".

Which lift...hmmm...

"Which lift?" is part of the "Great Debate". Yes, a 2.5" lift is a good all around lift that will easily accommodate 35" tires. As for getting a complete kit, that's the catch. There are many...

Which lift???

First of all, like Jason, I'm not a big fan of body lifts. Also, geometry correction is very important. Unfortunately, a lot of folks will let it go with "Well, it's only off a little.", or "It's not...

Steel

I opted for the steel and I'm very happy with them. As a side note, be aware: Your Jeep's handling will be significantly different! You will no longer have the same planted feeling. However, this is...
