Vancouver canada

Hey guys. I have been advised to be 'social' and 'introduce myself', so here I am. I hail from Vancouver Canada. I've got a 2008 2dr X that I picked up in 2014. It was a bit of a garage baby and is in good shape. Just crossed over 50,000 km last month.

This summer I swapped out the original, bagged to hell all seasons for some Cooper Discoverer ATWs in LT285 75 R16 (33x11...ish). These really improved the look and handling. I had the Jeep up on some decommissioned logging roads and trails hunting this fall and it did great. Much improved over the previous summer's attempt on all seasons. There was a very slight rub in the rear when corner jacked crossing over deep erosion control ditches and very minor rubbing at full lock up front with the sway bar. Wheel spacers solved the sway bar rub. Still deciding on what lift to do, probably just puck spacers for my mission profile though

Since then I picked up a Procal doo-hicky to fix the TPMS warning and recalibrate the speedo for the new rubber. Worked like a charm!

Otherwise the Jeep is stock. My current project is a rear bumper and tire carrier build. I've started a build thread over in the modified tech sub.

Cheers!
