Not yet. Should be able to do that this weekend. There were a few items missing from the package, but Evo worked it out. Great customer service from those guys.

Have you put on the EVO tire carrier? Was thinking about going this route too, but might be overkill if only going to 35s.
If you do any rock crawling then a tire carrier is not overkill. If you come down on a rock that grabs the spare, you won't be happy to see the results. A tire carrier won't have the same results.

Am I correct in assuming that you meant that the tire carrier would help prevent the damage?

Yes. Obviously there are one off scenarios, however the one I provided is a major reason to purchase a frame mounted tire carrier. With a body mounted tire carrier in place, any contact the tire makes with solid sources would have the potential to damage the very weak metal door it hangs from.

About to get these band boys installed.

39” BFGoodrich KM3s!!!!

Chris here at Discount Tire in Decatur, TX was telling me that I’ll be the first person running these tires that doesn’t work for BFGoodrich.

Best part?

The tires were FREEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Thanks to Chris Olson and his team at Discount Tire of Decatur, Texas.

Superb customer service all around.

Just installed some Spidertrax 1.75” spacers.

I was experiencing some rubbing on my lower control arms when I cut the wheel to far left and right.

Just took it for a spin and now there’s no rubbing.

Overall the ride quality has improved! It feels much smoother now that I’m on 39” tires. The added width has improved handling a bit.

Overall fuel efficiency has dropped by 1MPG thus far.

Here’s a couple pics of the Spidertrax spacer install. I did it myself and it took about two hours.
