Good perseverance! On the bright side, assuming they are the DOM tubing- these will be a lot stronger than the JCR or Ace ones.

Mine is a 2014 with 4.10 and 35s. I doubt 4.10s would work well once I get over 8,000 feet and that is where the highways become really steep. I'd consider going to 4.88s if I do this.

That is one fantastic thing about the Rockies- you never need an AC after 5-6 PM. I do have a Hilleberg tent and the only problem is Moab (bedbug-ridden motels) and Fruita where it gets so hot...

Couple of options- either cut and fold an inner tube to put between the rim and arm or keep a piece or two of firm rubber/foam pieces around.

Thanks. That isn't good news. I'm hoping some have done this and have some feedback on how it can be done bearably. My buddy just picked one up and lives in Utah (and it works well there) but the...

Would love a V8 option and I'd have definitely paid a few grand more for it. It needs more torque and hp.

This is the 1UPUSA bike rack. It is as modular as they get and all made in the US. Even with the hitch extension, it does not budge. Not cheap but after using almost every rack out there, this is...

I could not stand them at 37. I ran them at 30/32 and they felt a lot better. I run my 35" MTRs at 27/28 but the stock KMs were 30. I run my 4Runner at 32/32 but it feels heavier too, and probably...

I have only had the Shrockworks for a few months. Their powdercoat is one of the things I heard really good things about. However, if you scrape hard on rocks, they will all need to be sanded and...

Should be very similar to the Shrockworks- at least as similar as sliders can get to Shrockworks. I was down to these two (started with a few more- LOD, Fab Four, Teraflex, PureJeep, Treks) and...

I have used Rock Krawler CAs, Rokmen CAs, and OEM CAs of course. I find the OEM CAs the most comfortable though they will have less flex in more extreme articulation angles. With the brackets, your...

Lower front CAs, adjusted longer than stock or upper CAs adjusted shorter than stock (the former is probably more common). Alternatively, the $100 AEV geometry correction brackets with...

That may be high caster. I have about 3.5 with an aftermarket DS and it drives well, but I am using the AEV drop brackets and OEM control arms.

The 4.10 struggles here but I live at 6,000 feet and drive up to 10,000-12,000 feet. It mainly sucks going up I-70 towards Vail and Breckenridge. 4.56 or 4.88 would be much better options for me...
