Just wanted to introduce myself... we are in
Utah and I picked up my first ever Wrangler. Other than a Jeep SRT I am new to Jeeps and I’m excited to put some miles on this thing. Traded in a Raptor for it since I sold our boat and so far, no regrets. Hoping to learn from everyone here-

Nice looking rig. Mine will look very similar. How much did it cost you to get the rings powder coated?

Not sure- I can check the build sheet but the dealer did it and was going to use it as a demo.

Those are 315/70R17 tires? I'm wondering what's bigger (diameter and width), 35x12.5x17 or those.
315/70R17 BFG KO2's measure almost exactly 34" in diameter and, though I haven't measured width, are definitely narrower than 12.50. The benefit is that they actually come in a load range C.

That's a great looking jeep, it actually looks like the front is sitting higher than the back. Maybe a winch would level it out.

If you’re anywhere near Utah I’d be willing to trade my red rings for black or silver ones. Anyone know if it’s easy to pop the rings off and swap them out or if I’d have to remove the tire?
