Re: New lift, wheels, and tires on 2017 JKURHR

Looks great! That's the same lift kit I used and same tires too. So far, I'm really liking the off road ride with the S/T3 kit.

Re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Depending on your style of license plate frame, maybe an easier way would be to clip the plate to the frame first on the bottom, then clip the plate to the little tabs on the right side where it...

That's normal, both my Grand Cherokee and Hellcat do the same thing. If you drive the freeway @ 70mph it might show a DTE of say 100 miles. When you exit and drive surface streets your fuel...

Re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

The nice things about most of these lift kits is that you can mix & match whatever shocks you want. For instance on my S/T3 kit it comes with Fox 2.0 Reservoir shocks. But you can also get the less...

Ladies, Google - (Wild Boar Jeep Handles). They attach to the upper corner of the windshield and are grab assists for getting in. Lot's of them on Ebay. They work great.

Re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

If someone wants in your Jeep (or any vehicle) a soft top isn't going to make much difference. They'll just bust out a window and they're in. There's not much you can do if you're targeted. Keep...

Re: 2017 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

Thanks everyone, I'm really liking the color especially living here in the desert southwest. It has not stopped raining since it got unloaded. I hope this isn't an omen or something?

Re: 2017 Wrangler JK Waiting Room

I don't know. That must be part of the TeraFlex rear tire carrier option for larger tires. I'm putting 35" tires on it.
