8Ē wide. 3.5Ē backspacing.

Lots of companies make 15ís in steel. Raceline, method and trail ready are the only companies I know of that make alloys in 15ís but Iím sure theyíre others.

Took it out to hot springs and got it dirty. Only managed to scratch two of the new rock rings. Guess I donít wheel hard enough bra.

Recent updates. Changed out my valve cover, rear main seal, new oil pan, Fumoto valve and swapped out my UCF rock sliders in favor of some Poison Spyder Ricochet Rockers. Also removed my Smittybilt winch and replaced it with a Warn M800, put in a full length Tuffy console and changed the console sub to a Kicker unit.

Picked up a new work truck/occasional tow rig. 2014 Ram 2500. Have been looking for quite a while for a 3/4 ton Ram and finally found one that checked all the boxes (gas motor, 2wd, crew cab, long bed, work truck package, black). And the price was right.

Iíve been flat towing the Jeep for a while with my half ton dodge and the time has come to get a trailer and a bigger tow rig. Now Iím on the hunt for an 18 foot car hauler.

Took it out to Barnwell Mountain in Gilmer, TX to destroy that new armor I put on. Got a little air under the tires...luckily no damage and winched myself back over and kept going. Got a good look at my skid plates though.

Nope. I keep the top unhooked in the back when wheeling so there was no tension on it. Winched it back on its tires and kept going. I was honestly surprised that there was no body damage, not that Iíd care if there was
