Yeah think we got spoiled with amazing rigs (tires and lifts) here on the forums. It’s a great little package from the factory. I think I personally was expecting more but that’s my own fault. I didn’t order the package myself but I hope those who did enjoy theirs!

OK, so a few questions from the XR thread in orders/builds section:

- Is the CAD gone on the front axle with the XR edition beefed up front axle?
- Are the flare extensions removeable by themselves so I dont rip them off on the first trail I take it on?
- Any interior changes that they didnt tell us about?
- How much real world extra lift is there?
- What color are the wheels and beadlock rings? Looks like Granite Crystal/Gunmetal wheels with a black ring?
- Whats going on with the rear tail lights? Are they spaced out from the body?
- You take that thing off any sweet jumps?

Thats the exact build I have except I dont have the steel bumper option, makes me excited for mine to come in!

Can I just take a minute to thank you for keeping the “sweet jumps” line from my original post. I was not expecting that and got a chuckle 🤣🤣

It looks way better in these pics. Still want to rip the flare extensions off. Wheels look good. Take the front bumper end caps off as well and I think you have something there.

That looks great. My biggest question is regarding the front axle. Does it still have the front axle disconnect or is it a solid tube? Can we please get a picture of the front axle to verify if it still has FAD or not...

That is when you get a break from driving and want to just crawl around under your new Jeep of course. I can only assume you took the day of from work to enjoy your new Jeep. :)

FWIW I think I remember seeing a video on the 392 having a FAD delete but still having the box? Maybe I'm imagining that, but it may not be as simple as just looking for the FAD box. Can someone else confirm?

My understanding is that its the box that is the issue. I've read post that the internals of the axle never break, but the axle itself will break at the box. So I'm hoping the FAD box is entirely gone. In fact, my decision of whether or not to order a XR is heavily tied to the FAD box not being there.

Found the video,

@ 5:18 it shows the 392 FAD box. IDK if the XR will have a similar setup. I'd appreciate it being deleted as well.
