It's finally happening! After weeks of waiting for hardware to be produced and shipped the build is underway.

Picked up the wheels (with TPMS taken from my LE wheels) and tires, loaded them into the Raptor and headed to the shop...



They're Toyo Open Country R/T 37x12.50/R17 load rating D

And the wheels? Not so fast. I'm keeping them a secret for now until the reveal...

The wheels are gonna be "colorful" and I'm not the first to run them (near impossible to be the only Jeep with a certain wheel). I'm running non-beadlocks so that part will be slightly different than a few others on this forum that I've seen with these wheels.

I may be able to pick it up tomorrow so more to come...

It’s alive! Back from the shop and definitely not a creature by Dr. Frankenstein-lift :CWL:

Well, maybe it is a Frankenlift but only for a very short while...

So, there's more to the Franken-lift story...

Shocks are very temporary...

Running Metalcloak's cheap Rocksport shocks up front with Metalcloak springs and stock shocks with Ram spacers (and stock springs) in back temporarily.

ADS front shocks are coming very soon. And ADS rear shocks with Metalcloak multirate springs in the rear just as soon as both companies can deliver them (supposed to be January).
