Tis the season (EJS) when you have the hardest time finding Jeep products for your rig to order, but I do this to myself every year!
For the past 8 months I've had a war with myself over Goodyear MTRs and Pitbull Rockers in 37x12.5R17 being my next tire choice (since they both offer a narrower 12.5" wide tire compared to my 13.5" Mud Grapplers). Well in finding out about the huge back-order on the Goodyears I decided to go back to my original choice... Pitbull Rockers it was!
So I get my quotes together... from every vendor on JKO that carries these puppies. Took about a week to slowly send out my inquiry and receive my quotes. Turn around the next week to place my order and
WTF... NOW THEY'RE BACK-ORDERED!
But alas... one vendor here actually had them in his possession!
of Pinellas Park, Florida (bobtail82
here on JKO) for coming through in a BIG
way for me!
These are the first step to my rebuild/fender widening project to get the JK back on the road and in accordance to Maine inspection laws.
and of course...
So the plan will be to mount these, remove my current 1.5" Spidertrax spacers, check for clearance/trim if needed, and then extend my ORE fenders to provide required tire coverage. Been working with county sheriffs and a local 4x4 shop/club for guidance. Then the beast will be back!
