I had a Teraflex JK kit that would not fit with the change to lug nut size and when using the Artec lug extensions on the Teraflex it covered some camera view.

I used spacers I had from rod ends with a new bolt to space it out and the Teraflex kit worked.

Only change I made to the Teraflex kit other than space it out is same I did on my JK, changed the hardware out to a clip in thread and a stainless Philip head screw for easy of access.

Was a bit costly to get there but the result is what I wanted. With the spare parts I am left with I have an Artec kit for a JK to get rid of.

Very happy with this color choice. These Ntto Ridge Grapplers are quite and ride is very nice. Running 28 psi for a good foot print.

Road wise runs the hills well with only minor changes, noticable in shift points, holds on a bit longer.

You mounted them with different sidewalls showing? Was this intentional?

Good eye!

First set of Nittos and apparantly in my rush to make SEMA my attention to detail was clouded. Saw none directional tire without white lettering. Got both sides the same though when I reinstalled for SEMA somehow.

Have 3 the same so changing one out, so only spare will be different.

MORE engine & belly pan skids, aluminum version installed. Simple and straightforward install. Had the steel version on JK and looking to keep weight a bit lower on this build.

Could not find anything I liked without drilling holes in body for rockers and not a fan of doing so.

Picked up a set of Rubicon rails for $75 and installed in the road in front of the sellers house :)

Where did you get that roll-call made?
My wife is a graphic designer. PM me your email and I can send the file so you have the size if you wish. Do what art you desire.

Printed it at Fast signs

Use it for both. Waiting to get gears and locker installed before hitting the trails.

JK was much like this and wheeled. That ended up with ram assist steering after a good winter running 3' of snow. Hoping to avoid that but looking at PSC in advance just in case. No trail pic on my phone.

Great build. Be super cool to find some Rubi take off axles. Seeing them pop up everywhere. Add locker and gears and it will be about the same price as Rubi axles but they are much stronger.
