Are these AAL fender chops? When last I checked the website said they wouldn't work on the Sport fenders. Did you get Rubicon fenders for this?I have a few (hundred) old photos but have been slacking lately. I’ll snap some new ones soon. This is about all I have not flexed rn:
Ted,Thanks for the pictures this looks really nice. Do you notice any rubbing when flexing out wheeling? What pressure do you drop down too while wheeling, have you had any trouble with loosing the bead?
Thanks for the info, I may end up with these.Ted,
Never have had any rubbing with this setup, even with the sway bar disconnected. Recall, this is a Sport. So when the sway bars are disconnected via my Teraflex kit, they are totally (mechanically) free. Not the electronic disconnect with a limit. So even with all the articulation possible, I don't sense any rub at all.
With that said, because I have a Sport I'm not looking to leap the tallest boulder in a single bound either. While I off-road often, I'm not out looking for the extreme stuff in particular. My comfort zone without lockers is probably around a 5 or 6 difficulty rating. No Metal Masher trails for me, that is unless I'm wheeling with my patrol where I know I've got excellent guidance and back-up.
I generally air down to 15 psi. And no I've never had any worry about losing the bead. My rubber are the 35x12.5x17 Goodyear Duratrac A/T's with the E load rating. While many despise this load rating for on-road comfort, I rather like it. It's a lifted Jeep after all, not some cushy civic. It's exactly this off-road durability and toughness is where they really shine. The grip and traction is also pretty exceptional. With the little wider stance of the 4.5" backspacing from my Fuel Ammo wheels, I really couldn't be any more satisfied.
Hope you discover your happy setup.
Thanks, I have the AEV 2” Spacer lift kit. It’s a nice kit for the price and comes with the calibrator. Tires are Nitto ridge grappler 35x12.50x17. I ended up switching from the rubicon wheels to the AEV borah. Had to run spacers with the Rubi wheels and stuck out way to much.Hi! What lift do you have? and tire spec? Looks great!
Nice set up, so u added 0.5 spacer lift only in the back?Mickey Thompson 35s on 17” Revos (from ET) 2.5” Teraflex Sport kit +.5” spacer to level out the back (rugged ridge hinge brace/spare bracket/spare weigh 250 lbs).
Daily driving impressions are good, lots of fun, tire noise is on par with the KO2s I had on my JK. I miss 6th gear, RPMs are too low to use it, think 80+.
Looking at ordering the rubi axles, since a regear on front and rear will like cost the same as one whole replacement after parts and labor. This will get me a taller gear with the added bonus of a locker front and rear.
Not-in a huge rush rly, Jeep runs fine for what I am doing now.
