Re: Winch Mount and bumper

+1 for the thread

It'd be really nice to get re-designed crossmember with winch mount on it.

Re: WK2 Rock Rail Install Pics.

I was thinking about these as well, but it is actually better to put standard tubes and weld a metal 50mm corner to the inner side of mounting brackets to join them all in a solid structure. This...

Re: Rocky Road Outifitters 2.5" Lift Install

I've got this kit installed too!

But instead of taking the boot of tripod mount apart, we just took the whole axle out of the gearbox. This is much easier!!!

Re: 33s and the 2.5" Rocky Road Spacer Lift

It does seem that rear tires are a bit tight. Should you place one on the rock to create some uneven load, and it looks like it will rub. But I guess slight trimming of inner fender will resolve the...

Re: 275/65/18 Duratracs on Mopar Wheels!

Looks great. I ordered them as well. Should arrive in a month or so. However I didn't bother with a spare. Don't want to mess up the trunk space.

Re: Oil Change Really Due?

As for myself I did that trick several times, but with no luck so for. It does reset the message, true, but it pops up again, 1 min after engine startup.

Pisses me off...:mad:

Re: Rocky Road Outifitters 2.5" Lift Install

Great post. Nice job.

I'm wondering if there is something I could do to prevent the axle from falling out. It does sound like a pain in the neck to get it back. I wouldn't like to struggle with...

Re: New WK2 lift

Wow, my respect, man!
It'd be nice to see some photos. Especially with this axle out. Is there any chance to prevent it from sliding out?

My Jeep is going to arrive some time next week I hope....

Re: New WK2 lift

So did anyone install RRO lift yet? Curious...

I'm still waiting for my GC arrival. I guess I'll give it a couple of months before installing any lifts. Just to feel stock height driving and then...

Re: Need advise on winter tires

These ones are actually look good, thanks for the info. What I could find so far, is that you can put studs in them and these are rated for snow.

Some forums say (from H2 and H3 users) that these...

Re: Need advise on winter tires

I would agree with this, but I can't see any new school solution which would fit those who live beyond polar circle.

Yes, studs make noise, yes they tear off road marks, yes they increase...

Re: Need advise on winter tires

Yeah, it's really hard to choose.
Thanks to all for your recommendations.
I didn't think of legal aspects of this question. In my place all tires are legal. So I guess I'll have to ask locally,...

Question Need advise on winter tires

Gents, does anyone live in northern areas to advise proper winter tires?

I'm looking for something to grind snow effectively, to look "angry" with RRO lift and to have studs. Speed rating less...

Re: New WK2 lift

Maybe you're right. I didn't think about that. I guess, I'll make up my mind when I'll get this lift installed, then I'll see how silly will it look to me.

Re: New WK2 lift

Bigger tires will add permanent error to your speed readings. In your case it's not much, just 3.17%. Same percentage should be added to an increased momentum of force. It is a permanent extra load...

Re: New WK2 lift

Here is my five penny worth.

Am I going to try it? Certainly. But since my jeep is not in my hands yet I look forward to see any alternatives to RR lift from other companies. I'm guessing few...
