Pics of the new 38's w/ICON Rebound Pro's ( @DTS ), the ICONS look so good, the titanium is a perfect match with the Hydro Blue. Love the inner bead lock and cannot be happier.

The new wheels and 38's look great!

Have you had a chance to fully flex yet? Did you have to adjust your bump stops?

They flexed it and ended up adding a puck both Front/Back it was barely rubbing in the back and it was hitting that front fender lip up front.

I went down to 2 in front after I put on the inners and chopped it. I think I need to remove one in the back. We went out this past weekend but didn't get into anything that really flexed it.

Jeep looks great! 👍🏻
I’m considering 38” nittos from my 37” BFG’s as well. But I’m still on 4:10’s for a while still.

Measurements with Lift and Tires

I knew they ran small but... 35" (30lbs PSI).

Awesome build thread. A more careful measurement of mine shows 35 13/16, so basically a tall 36. Base of the T-square is just under 1 9/16". The BFG company site claims 36.5. So it's a nominal 37 :)

I mean, I thought my measurements with a plastic toter were pretty scientific :)

Personally, I like the KM3s way more than the Ridge Grapplers in both ride and noise.

With the XR I have 4:56's, it's not horrible but does struggle in the mountains or any real uphill. Upgrading to 5:13s in a few weeks to fix that.

What' parts are left from the XR package? LOL not even 9 months old.

looking to buy wrangler
The goal: Waste less money. On my JK I would typically choose the cheaper item, end up regretting the purchase and buy the one I wanted but cost more anyway. Buy once and with a purpose.


==Completed Upgrades==
  • Slipstream Security Enclosure + 4" extension lid to fit fridge (about 20" tall)
  • KC Flex 3 (combo) / Flex 4 (combo) / SlimLite 6 (Spots) / Cyclone V2s
  • SuperWinch SX10
  • JTOPs USA Sun Shade
  • Outback Adventures Tailgater
  • Tazer Mini
  • MetalCloak 2.5"
  • Fox 2.5 Series Shocks
  • Fox 2.0 Front Hydraulic Bump Stops - Gen 2
  • 38" Nitto Ridge Grapplers
  • Icon Rebound Pro Wheels - Titanium
  • ARB Diff Covers (Red)
  • Redline Quicklift
  • Hammerhead Pinch Weld Cover
  • LOD Signature Sliders
  • Adams Front 1350 Drive Shaft
  • Wouxon KG1000G + Quadratec Mount
  • MetalCloak TB Frame brace and Front Spring Correction
  • Artec inner fenders (front/rear)
  • Quake LED Fender Chop Kit
  • 5:13 Gears
  • M.O.R.E Transmission/Oil Skid Plate
  • Steering Stabalizer Relocation (moved to top)
  • Bulletpoint Mounting Solution for Phone/GoPro/GMRS
==Future Upgrades==
  • Armor Lite Floor System
  • Replace KC Lights with Baja Designs
  • RedNeck Ram
  • Tie Rod brand TBD?
  • Front / Rear Bumper - Hefty Fabworks (ETA 2 Weeks)

==Cancelled upgrades==
  • Various Skid Plates
    • Front LCA and Rear shock skids
    • FAD Skid plate
    • Maybe Oil/Transmission Pan not sure if it's needed
  • Need a rack for camping; I won't fit in the garage with the lift
  • RSE Sliders w/armor (These sliders are a wife request)
    • RSE needs to get their S* together; way too many reports of issues.
  • Beadlock Rings / Powdercoated to match HydroBlue (going new Wheels)
==Failed Upgrades (No Longer Using)==
  • MekMagnet, The Vinyl sticky stuff doesn't work great; it looks terrible to close up (I could not get all air bubbles out). Good idea, but it takes a long time to install and take off, unlikely to use again. This could work for others, just not a product for me. It was high quality, and the packing was excellent.
  • Jeep logo Dog Seat - Not very secure; instead, went with a Harness+ Seatbelt clip from Petco
  • 37" KM3's
Hot machine.

Hey mlz, I can defiantly help you out getting those KC replaced with our lights. Feel free to email or call me at, [email protected] | (76)560-2252 EXT 159

Hey Brandon @Baja Designs, he was quoting my build, I am the one replacing my KC's - Nothing wrong with them but the bumpers I am getting (Hefty Fabworks) are setup to fit Baja Designs.

I have the S2 Pros for the Backup lights/ next need to get the Fog and a set of LP's not sure if I am going to put them were my KC Spots are now or on the bumper.

I am leaning towards this look - going to powder coat titanium to match my now scratched up wheels thx Rubicon Trail and put the ambers in for the fogs.
