That's a tough one. I would say get the Patagonias because they're a great tire for the price and we sell them.

BUT, the Coopers are a great tire too and I was very impressed with the last set I had. They were the STTs though, not the pros.

What the heck, they're tires and will wear out, get one and when it's time to replaced them, try the other... LoL!

Also, that LoD riser: how long have you been running that with the 37? Any tailgate issues? Wondering if I should spring for the Mopar bracket ($800) or just that riser.

We have a spare 37" for the JL, but don't carry it too often.

The guys at EVO Mfg. had their hinges loosen up from carrying their spare 37", so we're a little Leary about running ours full time.

We're definitely waiting to see what comes from the aftermarket in the way of HD tire carriers.

Its been an expensive 2 days. Ended up with the 37" KO2s based on my daily driver Jeep and Northern IL snows, Quadratec Hardrock wheels and the Mopar Reinforcement bracket. Looks like I did good with that bracket then! Thanks for the help and info.

BTW, love those KMC beadlock you are running on your Jeep. If I could justify it I would have gotten those too!

The OIL CHANGE REQUIRED light came on in our Red Rubicon, so its time for an oil change and we detailed it out for anyone who wants to try it themselves and not quite sure how to go about it.

We used a genuine Mopar Oil Filter pn# MO-349 and five quarts of Royal Purple Synthetic 0W20 oil.
We do have it as a package deal available: JL 3.6 V-6 Oil Change Kit

If you had (have) a 2014-2018 JK, it's pretty much the exact same, except it only take five qts of oil, not six.

Curious if you ever got your rusty hex bolts on the beadlocks taken care of. Did XD take care of the issus? Love the rims, just want to make sure they will stand behind their product.

Thanks,
Jonathan

Not OP but have the same wheels with the same rusty bolts that I purchased through Northridge. I contacted NR and sent them a couple of pics of the bolts. They said they'd work with the vendor to replace the bolts. Like 3 or 4 days later a box arrived with all new bolts. Pretty painless and great customer service!

@Jschmadeke, We did get new bolts in for our Rubi, just haven't had the time to replace them yet. We also got another set of beadlock rings and had them powder coated red to match the paint. Hopefully will get to those over the next couple weeks.

It’s posts like this that are making it REALLY hard to wait for the 2019 diesel orders to open up.
Don't even worry about it, having the JL right now kind of sucks if you want to modify it. Everything I've bought has taken 3-4 months to come in, checking websites constantly for new parts there's rarely JL options, etc.

There's gonna be a lot of dispersed knowledge in the next year or two from us beta testers.

Can you vouch for the powdercoat on these black lugs..nut coming off after 1 or 2 t
We have taken the wheels on and off multiple times as we use this Jeep for testing and we have no issues with the coating yet.
