@ShockerRacing Hey James
Question - if you get a chance, could you measure bolt center to bolt center of front LCAs? There is mention of geometry adjustments and just curious if they installed longer LCAs possibly from Mopar Lift kit. Thanks
Ok, I just measured the bolts on the inside of the front LCA and I’m seeing 24” exact. Hope that helps.

Thanks. Just to verify. Was that center of bolt to center of bolt?

Toyo Open Country AT3 in 35x11.5. Wanted to try and stay with a C load range tire.
Hey quick question, what's the advantage to C load range tires? Smoother ride? Less weight?

Yes both smother ride and less unsprung weight. Lower the weight, the easier it's on the drive train, but that won't be an issue. Depending one how much weight you save you can feel it on acceleration. With this engine I don't think you'd notice a 5lb difference, but I bet 10-15lbs you would be able to tell the difference. Not like it won't be able to handle it no problem but you can tell the difference.

Well since we are on the subject of a 392 and weight loss, I was wondering how much extra weight involves the sway bar disconnect? What weight loss would be achieved without it?
For my driving needs, I want a Willys with a 392, sort of a street Rod sleeper.
My driving is more Highway and natural disasters, really deep snow and floods.

The LCRs have the part numbers stamped on them as well, they are not easy to measure and the difference between the stock and Mopar is only .25”

I am awaiting the delivery of my 392 and I am looking to do the same as you are doing with switching the tires before delivery, with the dealer doing it they are also say that they are willing to do the speedometer recalibration, I`m not sure if that will really happen or will I have to go the Tazer or other reprogrammer. What tires did you decide go with? Actual 35"s E range or the 315/70/17 C range identical to what came stock on my Raptor? Thanks for the updates and please keep them coming. I am really looking forward to getting mine whenever it gets here
I wavered back and forth between the BF Goodrich All Terrain KO2s and the Mud Terrain KM3s. Finally decided on the BF Goodrich KO2s, 315 70 17, going with the C as that was what was on my 2017 Raptor also and those tires were fantastic. Now if Jeep would just build the damn thing...

The tire rating difference also comes into play depending on what you are going to be using your Jeep for. E range tires when deflated for rock crawling provide more sidewall stability and bite along with a better chance of not receiving any tire damage like sidewall punctures

I don't necessarily agree with your assessment. Typically load range C tires will allow your tire to air down more effectively, giving both a better contact patch and allowing the sidewall to flex better and wrap around the hard obstacle, which can often prevent sidewall puncture at least as well or better than a stiffer sidewall. Thickness is not always a true indicator of strength or puncture resistance.
