You running full beadlock or the simulated rings? I found that Jeephut has the wheels for the best price and NTW has the rings for almost half of what everywhere else is selling. Ill be ordering mine in the next couple of weeks just need Jeep to show up so I can sell the stock wheels lol.I got 4/5 of the wheels mounted today. Still waiting on dirty life to send the 5th. The front bumper shipped out Thursday so it should arrive soon. Loving the new look and it still drives great. Looking forward to the first long highway haul to figure out how much the 37s affected the MPG. Hoping for high teens combined.
They are in the simulated mode now. I went with the Dirty Life though because they can be converted down the road easily with a new ring. For now I don't want to run a true BL since it's the wife's daily and checking the bolts every 500-1,000 miles doesn't seem fun. Much easier on my TJ that goes 2,000 miles on a good year. The JL is around 1,300 miles a month.You running full beadlock or the simulated rings?

Very easy. The only extra step would be to take the third brake light off which is on a very simple quick release lever. The same kind you'd find on a bike wheel. You can't go wrong with that carrier imo. It looks like they put a lot of time, effort, and engineering into the design. Next step for me will be to add the extra support brace since the tire/wheel combo we have is right on the edge of the weight limit.I’m looking into the TF bracket as well. Is it fairly easy process to get the tire on and off?
Jeep is looking great btw!
Thank you for the kind words! Your rig looks great and we cant wait to see the skids installed.Took about 80 days but the Next Venture aluminum skids showed up today. (Given the weight and quality I feel it was worth the wait) I'm excited to get started installing them. Hopefully next week some time.
It's hard not to keep building. The goal with this one is to be able to take it on the rubicon and other local trails with the kids. For the tougher stuff I have the TJ.Awesome!! I ordered my first Jeep, a '22 JLUR in Hydro Blue as well. I thought that the 10.8" would be fine. I have 10" on my Outback and the reason I'm getting something different is for the 4WD Lo, that's been the problem I've encountered. Time is moving too slow and my wife is getting annoyed with me asking 5 times a day, "is my Jeep done yet?" :D
I'm going to keep looking at others who have lifts and 37s and think mine looks silly. hah Wife is already mad because she knows I want to order Jeep parts and she wants me to finish the basement.
Credit due where credit deserved. I got all the skids on today but the rear DEF. The fit and finish was amazing. You guys make an amazing product. The only thing I had to do was grind a hair of material off the oil pan skid where it attaches to the cross member. It was incredibly minimal though and took less than 10 seconds with the grinder.Thank you for the kind words! Your rig looks great and we cant wait to see the skids installed.
