Dang that's sexy!!! That is definitely my next mod.


For anyone on the forum: Out of curiosity, in most of the posts I see where people are doing this mod, they are only doing the front and not the rears. I know that rear kits are made, so why isn't that just "part of the process"?

For me it was a matter of priority. I did the fronts because I had a frozen caliper, so it was a convenient time to upgrade.

Plus, front brakes provide something like 70% of your stopping power.

I'll get to the rears eventually.

Ko2s are awesome in the snow, at least in thenslushy and soft stuff on the road during and after a storm. Exponentially better than the kms were. Km2s, They were not as bad as kms, not as good as ko2s.

Probably will look into taking to shop tomorrow or Sat. Hoping to have it back on the road soon.

Not looking forward to the bill...

Installed Spidertrax wheel spacers, rear seat recline kit, and unfortunately a new rear seatbelt since the dog chewed it up.

The seatbelt bolts were a bitch. Glad I had help from a friend of a friend that new what he was doing.

Awesome pics of your hi-lift. I have been looking at that same mount and wanted to see a few pics. I plan to put a hi-lift in the same place.

Had to get it from the dealership. Could not find any rear seatbelts for a 2017.

Price wasn’t horrible but they wanted way too much to install. It was a bear to get the bolts out on the chewed one.

I thought seat belts and related parts were covered by a lifetime warranty (not including being used as a chew toy by a dog).

What jack mount is that? And will that work in a 2 door? That looks a lot better than wedged behind the front seats, which is what I've got right now.

Stealth Hi-Lift Jack Mount Kit by Dominion Offroad

Website says "2 Door coming soon." Google them and give them a ring. They may have the kit, but just not have updated the site yet. The two brackets took 15 minutes to install. I set the jack on them and secured it while standing on pavement (3.5" lift, I'm 5'10") in 5 minutes.

It's a combination engine tune computer, custom digital gauge cluster, and electronic switch and accessory controller made by Superchips. Google it. It's livened my ride back up and softened the pinch at the gas pump. 17.5mpg daily city driving running an 87 octane tune with 35s, 4.10 gears and a 3.5" lift. Pedal Commander is set at Sport +4.

Just got my AEV pro cal and set up everything for the proper tire size. Not a mind blowing difference but I can definitely tell the shift points have been adjusted to compensate so that's worth it right there. Good to have an accurate speedometer now too!

Hey probably a silly question, but for the "plasti-dip", I assume this is done for the sheen and to protect it from chipping? What other area's can you apply this to? What brand do you use?

I like the Plasti Dip because you can peel it off if you don't like it. I also find it easier to apply and look nice than paint. It forms one smooth rubbery layer and seems pretty durable. I used it on the grill of the Dodge Charger I used to have and after about six years it still looked great.



Plasti Dip is actually the brand. Picked it up at Lowes.
