yeah..no thanks. Im 51 and although I work out...just couldn't handle it alone. LOL. Quick question. What are the two o-rings that are tied to the box. I assume they go down into the fittings for the high pressure and return lines.

Thanks

Kjeeper's never ending build

I got orings with mine. kjeeper10 you prolly threw them away. I nearly missed them.

But there were for replacing your stockers. If you don't have any leaks don't worry about it.

On mine, the O-rings were attached to a zip tie around one of the bolt holes.

I had 35" BFG KM2s on my Jeep for 25,000 miles. They were pretty noisy after a short while and they handled like crap in the wind and rain. I never realized it because the stock KMs that came on my Jeep were pretty much the same. I put a set of 35" Nitto RGs on my Jeep back in January and I LOVE these tires. They are silent on the road even with the top and doors off. The ride is more comfortable too. They look real good as well. I have taken them off road a couple of times and they're unstoppable. They are about a thousand times better in the wind and rain as well. With my KM2s, I would fight to keep the Jeep on the road in a cross wind. Now, it's a LOT less effort. I am completely sold on these. They're fantastic tires. You'll love them.

That is a beautiful setup, the new shoes fit your jeep's wheel well perfectly.

I had 28/26 in my MTR's and if anything the centers wore more. These are 9" wheels so theres going to be less bulge .. truer PSI.
I set them all to 30 and if it would STOP raining i can finish up

What does worry me is the amount of weight on some (15-20 oz) Look likes a typical lazy tech that doesn't want to rotate the tire 180°.
At least all the weight it not piled in one area like the MTR's ... its spread out and on both sides. Im thinking about putting some tape over the sticky weights so they wont fall off too.

well Toyo says you can have 1% of total tire/rim weight in wheel weights and be in spec. ie 100lb combo can have 1lb of weight. so you are probably good. looks bad ass for sure
