PIC REQUEST: 2.5 inch RK/35 inch KM2's/MTR's

Bout to sell the 33's to go 35's (should have done that in the first place, but, live and learn I guess), I know a lot of you are running the stock mod, or max travel, max travel pro on 35 inch KM2's or MTR's....

Thanks Marcus, yours is the white 2 door with 37's/racelines and flatties right? F-in sweet rig bro, I love the LOCG set up...

I wish I could do 37s, but I certainly cannot afford a re-gear right now, and I cant be that guy that "deals" with the torture of 37s on 3.73 gears for a year or so! 35's with that ratio will be hard enough as is...

Anyways, I will let you know when I am ready to give you the dough for the ATX slots we talked about. It will be soon tho for sure!

Marcus already linked to one thread with pics of mine, but here are some more pics. It's the 2.5 Max Travel Kit with 35" Trail Grapplers.

Also, when it's time to buy I highly recommend calling River City Offroad. Marcus is a damn good guy to deal with and you'll be hard pressed to find a better price. On top of that the customer service is awesome. When my tires and wheels were delivered the UPS guy went full retard and dropped some of mine off in another city. Marcus got that squared away ASAP and next thing I knew they were on my driveway.

Yeah the 35s look perfect for that lift. My decision to ditch the 33s and go with 35s has been solidified. The only thing holding me back initially was my 3.73 gearing and the non-rubi BS command trac transfer case I have.

3.73s and 35s really aren't that bad in my opinion.

Thanks for all of the kind words ya'll!

Last thing I'll say about gears...STOP WORRYING ABOUT IT AND DO IT. The 3.73s and 35s are fine with the 6 speed. I PROMISE!!

Here's mine next to my buddy's JKU w/the 2.5" Stock Mod on 35" KM2s:




I have 37s on the 2.5" Max Travel:

Cool, I wanted to get the MTR's, cause I don't wanna get another set of KM2's and have them be only be 33.5 inches tall, which I think is complete BS but.....supposedly the MTR's are on backorder, in that size at least (35x12.5x17). You know anything about this?

Or rather, can you DO anything about this.......

MTRs are sweet tires. However...I don't have the secret formula to make Goodyear wake up and smell the coffee on production.

Marcus stop posting pics of your rig. It makes me want to step up to 37's and my turdy can't take that.


Does anyone know the free length of the 2.5" rear springs?

Look closely.

I don't know off the top of my head, but I can find out!

Do you remember the Jurassic Period?

Seriously though...40s have been on back order for over a year. 37s come in 2 and 3 at a time so I have to build a set and then offer them up. I haven't seen 35s in a few months either.
