When you find out that KO2s that fit Sahara Wheels are more expensive than KO2s that fit Rubicon wheels...

This is it. You finally discovered the super secret reason the MOAB exists. Now we can all stop arguing about it :LOL:

Wait till you see the price of the KM3s. :giggle:

I'm just going to go a different route when my tires wear out than going with KO2s. I've had to replace 2 of my Goodyear Kevlars so far so I'm just doing some advance research.

I will end up with KM3’s after these Coopers are toast. I got the coopers as part of a package deal for the beadlocks on Craigslist. So far, no complaints. They’re a bit noisy, but I’m not going to complain about what’s to be expected from an M/T.

So I guess you installed a disconnect for the lift-gate lights. I must have missed that.

Yeah. The light harness comes with the perfect length for the disconnect to be right where the rest of the disconnects are. It's in the video; in the dark.

Yeah, man. I really liked the light after installing his. I bought one the next morning.

They are definitely louder. I had 315/70R17 KO2s on it before. With the addition of the 8.5 inch wide Methods, the Jeep tracks much better. No sway left to right at all. Feels like it is on rails. I am noticing that because the setup is some 15 pounds heavier per wheel, the braking is not as good. The fact that they stick out almost 2 inches beyond the fenders also increase the wind/road noise. Regardless, I love this set up!
