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!

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.

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.

Where is that first picture at? Go 4x4 much in the mountains?
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.

What tires did you settle on and were spacers needed?
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.

What do you think about the upper a arms and BWoody's sway bars? I plan on doing the RRO lift and was wondering if it would be worth it to do the a arms and sway bars at the same time. Thanks.

Absolutely. You will not want to pull everything apart again at a later date to add the sway bars and control arms...assuming you are doing it yourself. The front driver side was a major PITA, I had to pop out the CV join to pull the shock and get the control arm in. I never want to have to do that again. If you do go with the Bwoody sway bars, I recommend puchasing case hardend bolts and dont use the ones the bars come with. First camping trip after the install I snapped one of the bolts and had to make a pit stop at Home Depot to replace.

Yes, I will be doing it myself. I just wasn't sure about the a-arms because I haven't seen many people talk about installing them. I plan on installing both the a-arms and the extended links. Thanks for the tip on the bolts, definatley getting better ones. Thanks again. Take care.
