Looks Good! It is getting there. It is definitely big for my liking, but I also understand why you do it for the terrain in your area! When you upgrade to 42's it will be killer. I am sure for a JK it will dominate the trails in AZ!

Ya know....the wheels kinda grow on you after time. I had an issue with finding a wheel with the 8 on 170mm bolt pattern in a true beadlock, I called most all of the companies out there and they wouldnt drill that pattern because the rear hub to stud clearence is tight. I have had walkers on everything I have ever wheeled, so, In my mind, they were kinda played out, and I like being different....

Jeremy, I want to give you huge props in the design and fitment of this new product for the do-it-yourselfer. Everything was just right with the install, the brackets fit tight and gave great weldability, the arms were plenty long enough for just about any build, the custom inserts fit like a glove. But, what else should you expect from RockKrawler, including the tech is incredible.


Joe

A few changes..... Lowered the whole jeep 2", as 42" Competition MT/R Kevlars are kinda hard to get right now, so I will have to wheel the 40's for now. Installed the new Hanson stubby front bumper for a little more clearence, and it will also allow me to cut the "crash bar" off the frame for yet more clearance. Should have some good trail pics by next weekend.

since you cant use teh back seat anyway cause the rear tank why not just add a harness bar then you dont have a sear belt stretched out.imo it would look cleaner this way.


other than that it is a sick build. i didnt realize those were 40s lol
