I'm getting super fired up... the Phase I pieces are all on order (well, almost) and have started arriving.

Shocks, Exhaust Spacer, and Procal Module have arrived, Wheels have shipped, Lift Kit ships Tuesday, and my GF and I are going to the shop on Monday to make the final decision on Tires (I'm down to two choices), so I can get that ordered.

I'm hoping that by Mid February, Phase I will be complete!! Maybe then the 24hr obsession will at least lighten up a little bit! hahahaha

I can't wait to post some pics... I just can't post pics of the stocker.. too silly looking compared to all the awesome Jeeps here.

dammit... I haven't even finished this post and I'm already thinking about what Phase II will entail... hahahaha what have I gotten myself into?!

You'll be okay for awhile. Then the withdrawal will set in, and you'll need to order something, if only a new (better) pair of grab handles. :D

What two tires have you narrowed it down to?

And don't be ashamed to post a pic of your Jeep before the mods. A photo of mine is floating around here, somewhere. We all started that way.

At least I had the benefit of sunset. :)

I'm down to the Duratrac in 285 or the Cooper STT in 295. I'm pretty sure I want the 295's, but I want to see the 285's in person, as I'd rather buy the Duratracs, but I won't do it if I don't like the way they look.

Oh, I didn't miss it... I also didn't miss that you used a low angle, front corner shot... hahahahahaha

No dirt :confused: It is a Jeep isn't it :D

Just came off Shoe Creek & Crab Tree Falls Trails (lookem up on YouTube) and all I can say is Thank the Lord for a car-wash :thumb:

Even had to use 4-wheel drive :rofl::rofl:

Can't go wrong with either tire, IMO. And yeah, I went low...look what I was working with. :D

W...that photo's from the day I drove my Jeep off the dealer's lot. If it had been dirty I'd have made them clean it. :thumb:

Im guessing that you're considering these tires for price reasons?

Check out the fierce attitude tires. My friend runs them and loves them! You can get them at sams club for a great price!

But Cooper Discover STT's are also great tires. I used to run them on my XJ and loved them. Now I run KM2's on my JK and also love them but I think Im going with the fierce attitudes next because they are like 2/3's the price of KM2's and seem to be very comparable. Just not a big name like BFG.

BTW.... WTF is an exhaust spacer?!?!

It's something you apparently have to have on a 2012 JK if you are putting a lift kit on. If I understand correctly, the new exhaust layout is different, and something can rub, so this kit corrects / prevents that.
