Installed the Mopar tailgate reinforcement, and @Rough Country Suspensions relocation bracket on the wife's JL while I was waiting for discount tire to mount/balance our tires. With the tire mounted this makes for a very stout combination!

Must have been a busy day at Discount tire, but a few hours later I had the wheels and tires ready to be mounted on the Jeep.
Setup:
17x8.5 ProComp 5034
35x12.50r17 Goodyear Fierce Attitude
I really like these tires on road. They are extremely quiet, and even at 34psi they seem softer than the factory all terrains. :like:
They did seem to take a lot more weights to balance out than my 37" Coopers and Beadlocks, but they drive nice down the road.

Being that the Jeep is now a few inches higer with the tires & RC 2.5" lift the @ROAM sidesteps are really going to be put to good use.

Nice duo you and the wife have there... really digging the builds! Awesome photos and nice write-up as well. Keep it up, so I can show me wife and get her into building up her JL when we purchase it in 2 weeks.

So why did you go with a smittybilt x20 10k winch versus a warn? Just curious on your thoughts on that versus a warn.

I've had both, and never had a failure with either... I like the wireless remote the X2O comes with standard, and love the price. The only smittybilt failure ive seen on the trails was an earlier non water proof model where the clutch lever was corroded in place(owner didn't check it prior to the trip.). Fortunantly I had the tools to disassemble on the trail and we were up and running fairly quick. For the price savings I plan on purchasing an ARB dual air compressor :like:
Now that my wife and I are doing this together I think a nice air compressor is necessary. She will eventually get a small one just to run lockers.

I am glad to see the RC bracket works with the Mopar bracket. I tried the Mopar bracket alone but it won't take a 38" tire so I need a lift bracket, but the Mopar is too much $$$.

I did have to grind a bit of the bottom right hand corner of the RC brackets so it would clear the Mopar plate. If you look closely at the pic you can see the bottom isn't exactly the same from left to right.

Very nice! Now, don't be a Maul Crawler. ;)
We were actually going to go to a local offroad park this weekend, but my wife RSVP'd us to a local Jeep gathering. We did see some fairly high grass :cwl: We all enjoyed it, so I can't complain. I'm still not sure how the kids are going to handle the Rock Crawling I like to do.
