Here is my Rubicon as it sat at the dealer.






Here it is 30 miles later.

AEV 2.5" DualSport XT Suspension with Geometry Brackets
AEV Pintler Rims in Argent
AEV Procal (easiest damn thing in the world to use BTW)
BFG 34" KM2's
ACE Rock Sliders/Steps
Jeep Gas Cap Cover
Jeep Tail Light Covers
Shorty Antenna
Husky Liners All around
Jeep Door Sill Guards
Curt Hitch Reciever
Jeep 7 Way Wiring Harness










I towed my Rhino to camp over the weekend and got 15MPG round trip which I thought was pretty good. The pornstar engine has plenty of power. I was getting 17MPG all day Friday rolling around town.

Here are the Husky Liners:



and the Jeep Grab Handles:

Looks awesome! Your 34" BFG M-T KM2s are 305/70R17s, right? That's probably the size I'll go with as well. Are you planning any front axle and/or rear tire carrier modifications to compensate for the bigger tires?

Cheers,

You are correct they are 305/70R17.. I don't plan any mods to the axle or tire carrier, the spare bolted right up and doesn't even rub the bumper.. Perfect size in my opinion.

"the pornstar engine..."

:rofl:

Autocorrect acting up again? LMAO

Is it billitt or billet?

Looks awesome! :cool: Might I suggest hitting the screws heads on the Mopar fuel door with some black paint to make them blend in?
LOL I actually typed PornStar, sounds better then Pentastar. :whistling:

It is Billet.. typo..

HA, I just got mine three days ago.

Loooked exactly like yours.. for the first 30 miles anyways.
I have to say that for me (totally not dissing you) I preferr the stock rims over the ones you went to. The wheels are one reason I got the Rubi. I might go to your tire size but I will probably keep the wheels (if that is possible, I got 2 to 3 years to decide.. when the tires wear out).

The Rubi Wheels were growing on me, but you needs spacers to run the tires I got..

I figured that ... so what is the down side to adding spacers? I understand you still need a lift of some sort but what is the difference between a spacer and getting a wheel that has the equivalent off set? You are still moving the load out from the truck a bit.

I've seen too many spacers fail in order for me to risk my $40K Jeep running them just to save a few bucks.. the biggest problem is you have to re-torque the spacer bolts every so often 4-5K miles and in order to do so you have to pull all the wheels, most people don't do this so they fail.

I'm not sure what to think of this color. I don't have any complaints, I have a bright metallic silver 2010 JK. Just different I guess because I've seen Jeep make several different shades of other color options but this is the first for the JK in silver.

Looks good to me! Billet was my first choice, but when it went on hold I went with CG. No regrets, but your Billet sure looks good!
