Mopar True Beadlocks | 39s KM3

IMG_7414.JPG
Jenzeee...Nice ride. My plan is (has been)to do the same on my 2018. I currently have 2 inch spacer lift with 37 KM2’s on stock rims. Yeti track bar, adjustable FLCA’s, Fox sterling stabilizer, Mopar tail gate reinforcement for spare. It now drives really nice(straight) on the on road/freeway(drove like garbage from factory),also does well off road(Rubicon Trail,sand dunes,snow/mud).

My questions are:
What lift /shocks do you run?
How does it drive on road?(obviosly it is a beast off road)
Does it rub off road?
Rear tire carrier?
Is there an negatives something you would change/upgrade suspension wise.

I have always been a fan of the Mopar True Beadlocks BF tires. Now with the 39s KM3... nice.

Your input is greatly appreciated.

True beadlocks are now on with a few other goodies. Pretty happy about it.

What lift /shocks do you run?
- Teraflex Falcon 3.3 with 3.5’ Rockkrawler springs. I had the Teraflex coils but I found them too firm. With the triple rated Rockkrawler coils (and now Teraflex IR control arms) my ride is way more comfortable, and I love having the option to adjust it.

How does it drive on road?(obviosly it is a beast off road)
- very acceptable for everyday use. Not as quiet, light and efficient as the KO2 (coming as 39s in May), but very close and the thread design looks more aggressive. The KM3 is great for off-roading especially rock crawling (grip and enforced sides, which are important when you go below 10psi) like on the Rubicon Trail

Does it rub off road?
- I got the Teraflex IR control arm kit (more flex) and the 39s can rub in extreme positions, but no damages. On the road I had never rubs. However, I am considering a to add 0.5’ lift spacer in the back, and going up to 4’5’ Rockkrawler springs (they runs shorter than e.g. Teraflex)

Rear tire carrier?
- The Mopar Beadlock are a bit heavy but the KM3 39s is lighter than others in this size, e.g. Nitto. I have the Mopar reenforcement kit installed and the Teraflex tire carrier. No problems.


Is there an negatives something you would change/upgrade suspension wise.
- As mentioned, I’ll add for sure a 0.5x’ lift spacer in the rear (Teraflex) and test if it clears then completely for crawling. Maybe I switch the springs to an inch higher if needed.

All in all, it took me a while to research and build it with the right parts/setup. Now I am very happy and seems like the perfect setup for me.

Btw, I am considering to switch back to the KO2 when available in 39s which should be this summer.
