I think it's looks great! I was between the level 8 zx and the level 8 strike 5's. Ended up with the strike 5's on some 37" trail grapplers myself, but that combo looks killer too!

That's a nice looking setup! How many inches of lift on the jeep?

You can't go wrong either way IMO

I'm pretty sure it has a 6" TeraFlex Long Travel kit.

Partial Hijack:

Well I'm still in the market for new tires. I have decided on these rims, but my tire choices are between the TG's and Duratracs. Both in the 35" range. I like both and The only reason I'm leaning towards the TG's and away from the Duratracs is durability.

I'm worried about the Duratracs durability (sidewall strength?), in moderate East. Coast/ Florida type rocks and terrain. Love the look of both and would rather have the DT's due to weight (~15lbs) and on road manners/wet roads/daily driving. But strength is a big concern.

Thoughts?

I have yet to see any issues regarding the sidewalls on the DuraTrac. What size were you looking at?

It's a known issue, I slashed two on rocks (aired down) before I gave up on them on the trail. I still run them on the road for winter where they are great. Had I known the sidewalls wouldn't hold up off-road I wouldn't have gotten them.

That depends on the size of Duratrac. The 315/75r-16 is D rated with 3 ply sidewall whereas the 315/70r-17 is C rated with a 2 ply sidewall.
I had the the 16" and they did I fact say 3 ply sidewall on them. Not too many sizes of Duratrac are D rated.
