Look awesome! I think you’re going to dig the Ridge Grapplers. A buddy has them on his Jeep and they work great in the rocks with a nice quiet highway ride. Really dig the beadlocks too

Thanks Rich! I chose the Ridge Grapplers after experiencing them on my wife's Jeep. Every time I dove her Jeep I was impressed.

Nice to hear your buddy like them in the rocks. Hoping to post more about them soon.

Alright, time for more pics. I have a more complete write up under Reviews on the Blog. I love the new set up and the Ridge Grapplers are superb. The difference in ride quality, turn in and steering inputs is markedly improved. Really looking forward to experiencing this set up on the trail.

Love the look, Steven!

I have no doubt that you are going to love the Grapplers. Can't wait to hear your experience on the trail with them.

Hi Steven
What did your RGs measure out to? Mine are right around 36.5. Where did you end up with tire pressure?

Hi Billy! On the 17x9 wheel at 32psi, they are 36-1/4" tall. The difference I'm seeing compared to the Mastercraft's is the Nitto is wider. They measure a full 10" wide across the thread. I'm loving the new set-up.

You also, have Teraflex speed bumps. Can you tell me if you use a lower pad and a sleeve?

I am running the SpeedBumps. They have held up really well.

I'm not exactly sure what you are asking. Jump over to the blog, I have a review with pics, that may help answer your questions? Let me know.

From the picture, look like you use the big spacer, but I can't tell how many strike pads you use on the bottom. Cool video btw.

Hi Tak, catching up on this after a busy day at work. I did use the big spacer. When I leave tonight, I'll look at the strike pad(s) and I'll get back to you with better info on that.

@TakHardRock , sorry this took so long! Here's an iPhone pic of the SpeedBump setup you asked about.

Looking at it, I remember the mechanic who installed the SpeedBumps thought this was the best solution based on the directions. In the pic, you will see I have a 1" bump stop(M.C.) underneath the SpeedBump strike pad.


I have roughly 1.5" of space between the SpeedBump and strike pad static.

Looking at this, sitting at static load, I think I might remove the M.C. bumpstop and just run the strike pad. That would have the SpeedBump coming into play farther in the compression, letting the spring and shock work as designed. Are you installing SpeedBumps on your Jeep?

I will receive the speed bumps and 1" coil spacers next week. Did you get the Jouce tube bracers too?

Hi Tak, I did not do the jounce tube braces. My SpeedBumps were for the 4" lift.

I spoke with TeraFlex regarding the proper set-up, because I found their instructions on height/distance between bottom of the SpeedBump and the strike pad to be vague, I asked Mark a direct question..."what is the ideal distance between the Speedbump and the strike pad?".

Mark's reply: "There is not an ideal distance between the speedbump and the strike plate. This just depends on how much travel you want the shock to have before it is assisted by the speedbump. The taller lifts kits are going to have more travel. In my opinion I think at least 1 inch of space is nice to have to give the shock room to work. Anything much less than that and it can start to firm up the ride as the speed bumps are engaging so quickly. The most important thing to keep in mind when setting up the speedbumps is that the speedbumps stops the travel of the suspension about ¼-1/2” before the shock bottoms out or anything else comes into contact such as a tire and fender."

Great info, thanks Mark I'm going to add this to my write-up/review on the Blog.

Thanks Steven, I chatted with someone at Teraflex and he told me to get the full kit with tube braces, but I don't like rears have to be welded as I will be installing myself. Based on the lift I have he told me to get 3-3.5 speed bumps and Eric from Northridge4x4 even told me to get the same. So I got the 3-3.5 front kit without the tube braces.

Nice, looking forward to seeing your install and comparing notes. After your inquiry and talking with TeraFlex, I'm going to take a real close look at my set-up and see if I need any tweaks.

I'm glad I have them on Rubi, as there have been a few times when I was carrying too much speed and the trail surprised me. The ability to bleed off energy and slow the axle down could save some big damage.

Hi Billy, great question! I have been trying different settings to get Rubi dialed in. Right now I'm running a few clicks softer, I'll run that today and start going to the firmer side. I'll post back on where I net out.

The biggest difference I've noticed with the Ridge Grapplers is the steering response is so much sharper, and the ride is buttery smooth. The R.G. are sensitive to tire pressure. On my set-up, above 35psi and the steering felt like it was wandering at speeds above 40mph. Running them at 30psi now and it calmed right down. So far, super impressed with the Nitro's, looking forward to some trail experience with them.

The M 106's have been great, zero air pressure loss and they balanced well. No vibrations at all.
