Almose done with the mods, just need to install the Yakima Loadwarrior to hold the spare that no longer fits in the trunk storage.
Mods done:
-RRO superslider
-All available Mopar skid plates
-Sharkfin
-Tint front windows to match
-RRO brush bar combo
-RRO 2.5" lift with RRO upper control arms
-BWoody sway bars
-275/70/18 GY Silent Armor
-XD Monster +35 offset
-Plasti dip grill

Will probably plasti dip more chrome and add some lights to the front bar at somepoint but the major stuff is done. I am real happy with the way everything turned out!

Not too much actually, I was surprised. About 2" in front and .75" in rear. Just cell phone pics...

Hey there! Great looking looking setup! I wanted to ask if you think the 275/70's on the stock limited 18's would fit. Im getting the 2.5 from rro and I am torn between the 275/65's and the 275/70's. Thinkin wrangler duratracs. Thanks for the input!!

Thanks! With the wheel turned to full lock there is minor rubbing on the felt up front. I am not sure without the right offset either size would work. I called Discount Tire who were able to tell me what offset I needed to run 275/70/18, so they might be able to tell you what's the largest size you can run on stock rims without spacers.

Sweet Jeep! Does the roof rack howl much?

What tires did you settle on and were spacers needed?

No, not too bad. The tire cover causes most of the noise as there are many rips. With the sunroof closed, you really cant hear much.

That was from camping near Mt Huron, a 14er south of Leadville. I dont get out as much as I would like. A buddy and I did some 4x4 between Camp Hale and Vail Pass which definitely pushed the limits. Hope to get more in during mid-late fall.

GY Silent Armor, 275/70/18. The rims have a +35 offset, so no spacers needed. Gets snug in the front at full wheel lock but no rubbing. Plenty of space in the back.
