This is a s-l-o-w build as I'm trying to save the money for components.
Got my new tires mounted on a set of JK Moabs I had picked up this winter.
265-70/17 Falken Wildpeak AT3s. Really like the tread on these. Lots of siping and an aggressive side wall.

Not yet, but since posting that, I've gotten the Rough Country 2" lift, a set of their 1.5" hubcentric spacers and a set of new Gorilla lug nuts (the stock ones suck). And a set of Moog problem solver coil spring insulators coming.
Now it's just a matter of saving up for the installation.

I did say this is going to be a s-l-o-w build, LOL

Got everything installed on Monday. No issues and although I did the pinch weld mod, I did not have to modify my fender liner. It clears.

I bought a spare grill shell some time ago with the thought of painting it satin black. Painted it a little over a week ago and installed it yesterday. :thumbsup:

Do you have any lift on your rig or is this all stock suspension?
Yes, 2" Rough Country lift. The rest of the suspension is all stock.

Nice rig.
Thanks. Wanted to keep this build mild as this is my daily driver.

Do you have any spacers installed?
Sorry for the delayed response.
Yes, 1.5" hubcentric spacers. But I am getting different wheels this weekend that has the proper backspacing, 0, to keep my wheels away from any trouble. Will be removing the spacers then.

Update: the 0 offset steelies contacted my caliper bracket because of the way the d-windows were made. They end up with about a 1/4" lip on the backside of the wheel openings.
I've found a set with a -12 offset. This should give me an extra 1/2" of offset. Discount Tire sent the 0 offset ones back and ordered one if the new -12 offset ones for a test fit
We'll see when they get here next week.
