Uh ya, the stereo, adaptive headlights and a few of the other Summit only items were a must have for me. I love 'em.

As for the fender flares, unfortunately on the Summit the raised area that goes into the bumpers is built in. I contacted Bushwacker and their flares won't fit. I don't mind the summit flares, I think I will change them black and see how I like it. As the "raised" area seems to disappear before the end of the panel, I will just continue the line straight and hopefully it doesn't look too silly.

I've listen to both the regular stereo and the HK and to tell the truth I really could not tell a difference in them. But then too when you're riding around with a sales person in the vehicle you can't really give it the real test. I have never had such a difficult time trying to make up my mind on a vehicle.

spend the money and get the one you really want because if you don't you will just second guess yourself later and wish you had, or that's how my mind works anyway.

It'll just be a bit more difficult as the body line disappears, but doable. Go for it!

BTW, your wheels/tires look great!

An easy way to tell ground clearance is take the major lines of the running boards and line them up with the center of the wheels. With a 33" tire, the center caps should be just over 16 inches high. I am removing those running boards of course and putting on rock rails. Good news on that front Amazon just sent me a email stating they should be shipping early December. I hear those are a bitch install!
Man, not only does that have serious clearance now, it is just going to be a tough looking truck. Can't wait to see what else you do.

Zybane- what size Tera Grappler did you get? I re-read the complete thread never saw the tire size.

What QL setting had some rubbing? Were you at standard height or at park/exit?

Do you happen to know what the offset is on those Mopar rims? I am wondering how they compare to the stock OR-II 18" wheels?

Thanks, Eric

Re: Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

265/70R18. The wheel is designed for the JGC, all of the wheel offsets will be the same. Hair superficial felt/liner rubbing at normal ride height, but only at maximum steering lock.

Re: Zybane's "Arctic" Diesel Build

I'm definitely going to be watching to see how your winch install goes. I've been planning to get the RRO bumper, brush bar, winch setup but I was hoping to have someone else be the guinea pig.

My RRO roof rails and rack are currently scheduled to be delivered on friday. I was bummed we had to take my g/f's vehicle to get the xmas tree this year because I didn't have my rack yet. Was hoping to use the SFU this year.

Hopefully RRO will ship my winch bumper and front runner skid plate this week. I'd like to get it installed before Christmas.

Also finalized a MOPAR 8 year/120,000 mile warranty on the diesel and 7-year full wheel/tire protection from Zeigler for $2265 out the door.

I got another nice piece of kit in, 14,000 lb baby:




Literally, half of my garage is filled with stuff to install.

I tested the under-chassis camera and everything looks good to work for "off-road" viewing, got the Lockpick inbound to view the video, also have to install two BlackVue Wi-Fi 2 Channel DR550GW-2CH 32GB for a total of four interior cameras. Also have to install all the V-LED fog lights, rear turn signals, back up lamps etc. Gonna go through a lot of solder with all this stuff.

In my opinion, this is the coolest build in JG history and one of the coolest Jeep builds of all time (some of the Wrangler conversions, like the AEV Brute with the 6.4L Hemi top this for me). I'm going to let you test this stuff out, and if you like it, I will put some of it on my Jeep as well (not as much as you, however ).
