If it's settled any it's not noticeable. I've put it to the test a few times on trails and the flex and handling is great. I haven't added any armor or weight to speak of other than carrying a full size spare in the well - it's a Nitto Terra Grappler with used tread (E load range - it seems heavy). I measured groung to rear hitch w/ & w/o the spare in the well - I measured a 3/16 -1/4" difference in the back. There is a very slight rake with the OME HD - but it's nearly level. Because the front fender well is taller than the rear and the black trim molding on the doors has a downward rake, sometimes I find myself swearing the front sits higher than the back - but nope - if anything it is perfectly level.

Re: Milton's build thread

between this thread and anotheron JF, i am seriously looking at the OME.

any problems with the pinch weld with those 265s? my 255s with 1.5" spacers hit the pinch weld on the reg, how about your 265s?

I haven't had any problems with rubbing. I have not done the pw and have been wheeling several times since install. The 265/70/17's are a great fit, along with 1.5" spacers on the stock Ronin II's (6.25 bs) - with the OME HD this seems to be the perfect combo.

Thanks. If you go the same route I doubt you'll be disappointed.

Re: Milton's build thread

I haven't updated my build thread for awhile because quite frankly I've been spending most my "forum time" on another forum. Anyway, went on a little road trip to Tuttle Creek Off Road Park back in November. It's north of Manhattan, KS - about 2.5 hours from us. We had a gang of family with three Jeeps between us. Tuttle is an awesome place to wheel for anyone and everyone. That's my cousin's KJ - bone stock/street tires - did pretty good - I was impressed. I was proud of her for bringing her Jeep. They needed winched out a couple times - but still :highfive: My Uncle, of course, pushed his TJ further than he has (it's funny how the more you wheel the more you'll try). The WK did great. We came through one stretch of trails that had a couple "pucker factors" built in - namely a shelf trail that dropped right off the passenger side on its climb to a nice ridge, and then a leg that we took down from that ridge that was the steepest gradient I have ever been down. (You wouldn't believe this place is in flat-lander Kansas). Oh yeah, the dork driving the WK is me in all my no shave November moustached glory. But, everyone on my crew at the firehouse is doing it too so it's all in good fun.

Re: Milton's build thread

A couple of the latest mods I did. Nothing major. Cheap, easy, and fun.
For Christmas I took an extra multicolor strand of lights and put 'em on the roof rack. I used zip-ties at each corner and the the middle of all sides to secure it. Then just ran the plug down the top of the lift gate to the rear interior. Used an inverter in the rear cig. outlet and plugged the lights into the inverter. I also finished sprucing up the underside of the rear end (axle, lower shock mounts, spare well rails). I sanded the rust out best I could with some heavy grit sand paper and used some flat black rustoleum in a rattle can. Figured a few coats would help protect with the snow season approaching (actually we had our first dusting the other day:chilly. Not to mention the salt that the road crews lay down :rantscream: I hate that stuff - nothing worse on the underside of a vehicle. My before pic is from a wheeling venture about a month ago at Tuttle Creek ORV just north of Manhattan, KS and the after pic may not reflect my work the best - but hopefully you get the idea.
