Stats? 2009 JK Rubicon, Its blue and has two doors and a soft top. The only thing done to it so far is a XHD front bumper. Everything else is stock. Last night I bolted on a Kargo Master rack. And now have to fab up some new brackets for the kc slims to go back on the windshield. The rack is ugly, and I sorta wish I didnt buy it, but its fucntional.....so it will stay on for the winter. Next will be wheels n tires, prolly gonna just get some soft 8's and only run 33's. Some skid plates. Then I'll see what I brake and upgrade as necessary.


This is at the end of the summer, I got the jeep in June. That is all soft sand, I was going up the other way(not the direction you see here) and little too much gas sunk her in that crappy sand. Whole front axle, trans skid were burried. Easy dig though being soft. Ill get more pics soon with the rack on so you guys can make fun of it with me.

Thanks for the welcomes everyone!!

So, I cheaped out and got an RE 2" spacer lift to stuff the 35's under there for now. Ide love some sort of long arm kit, but ya know..I gotta also be able to afford food and rent. I will be set up as follows(hopefully by next week), RE2"BB w/shocks, 15x8 soft 8's(the procomp versions...series something or other) 3.75 bs, and BFG KM2's 35x12.5 R15. Im hopoing I wont high center now in a certain spot I always do it at. I needed about 2 more inches of clearance to make it over this ravine deal, so I should'nt have a problem.

I also looking into the PSC flat fenders, I like those alot. I like the xenon -1.5 though also.....dunno.

NCTbassman - yeah that theory is hard to deal with, its not as easy to break some stuff as I though. I really really need to tear up the rear bumper, that way I have to buy something new, but its pretty tough. I might just break out the BFH while nobody is loooking, "hunny look, somehow the bumper fell off while the jeep was sleeping last night, oh well, I guess I need to buy a tire carrier". Good in theory, but never works in reality.

@gold knight - see, zactly what im talking about! the 33 / 35 debate was something I struggled with. But I knew if got 33's id regret it if I can fit 35's. I think I may have screwed up on the backspacing regarding the wheels they will be wrapped around, may have to grind a caliper or two.....dunno.

That blue is purty. Dark colors suck, though.
