I'm 5'9" and it does not interfere with visibility for me. It is made out of 3/4 DOM and tucks nicely into the groves in the roll bar. I had it made custom because there was nothing on the market that wasn't too bulky and had a cleaner look. It clears the sun visor and no issues with the had top.
I wasn't happy with what was on the market for an overhead radio locations, so I asked my friend over at Retro Fab to build me something custom. It keeps the radio high enough to be out of the way. I still need to wire it in, but now have the mount that works for me.
I run the 2 1/2 plush ride coils springs paired with the King shocks and the ride is smooth, yet firm (more a function of the shocks not the springs). To me there better than the OEM setup. Very happy with them.
AEV's JL wheels have a 5.77 backspacing +25mm offset and they run a 37-12.5-17 tire on there test vehicles. I spoke to them a few weeks ago at the overland expo and there rep said he had no rubbing whatsoever. This also give a closer stub radius to zero (within about an inch) than something...
Just pulled the trigger on these wheels. Mopar has a 15% discount coupon on there website (Mopar.com). I took that to the dealer and he had them in stock. He said if he ordered them it would take about 10 days (before he checked his own inventory). Paid $242.50 per wheel.
One thing about these new transfer cases is the gear tolerance is tighter then in the past, I attribute the hard to get its in gear to that (just my guess). Notice that when you're in 4LO, you don't get the gear slop (the clicking when you on and off the gas) that previous models had.
