Re: Alludc's ... "less stinky than Skunkd's" Altitude build

The mopar rock rails really help complete the look IMO - good choice there.

Re: Alludc's ... "less stinky than Skunkd's" Altitude build

One of the best Jeeps I've seen! I'm new to the jeep world (I have a 2015 black Altitude) and don't know much about lifts and tires. After seeing yours I want to go with the RRO lift and the same tires as yours. Do you happen to know if those same tires fit on the factory wheels? I really bought the Jeep because I liked the wheels. Thanks!

thanks! Unfortunately my tire wouldn't fit on a stock wheel/offset . It's a 33x12.50-20. Best you could do on oem wheel is 275/55-20.

you could run a spacer. 1.25" would get you to near my offset. Still a bit narrow on the wheel itself for such a wide tire though. My wheela are only .5 wider but I feel like they are the bare minimum for this tire

I wouldn't install another roof rack... I think it looks a hundred times better as is!

Same as the other 4, 33x12.50-20. Never leave home without a matching spare.

Are you able to squeeze that in the same location as the stock spare tire? Also how has the lift and 33"s impacted your mpg?

Actually, it does just squeeze in there, but I cannot have the top cover on it. I just have it strapped down. Looks cool. I can put the cover on, but its sticking up 2" off the floor.

I didnt buy my Jeep to watch MPG, but I still sit right at around 20mpg with 50/50 mixed driving. Much better than my thirsty 2012 hemi that did 12

Great thank you. Does that mean you don't have the floor down in the back? Any chance you could share a picture?

I'm debating between a ecodiesel, V6 or Hemi but I'm sold on the look that you've created. Really awesome!

Chief Products now installed!

Got around to installing their Red Recovery hooks, Nudge bar and Sump skid plate last night. Still have to install the trans plate sometime soon!

Looks much better with the rock rails and without that huge rack. I'm assuming the Gobi rack you're getting is the lo-profile one? Looks so much cleaner without the spare on the roof too.
