I still cant believe Jeep actually made this thing. :beer: The moment I heard it was coming last year I put my Gladiator up for sale, kinda waffled after getting a bad feeling from a dealer about ordering a 392, bought another JL and made it cool and ordered a 392 from another dealer days later. I sold that JL 3 months later when this one was delivered on Oct 5. I have had quite few jeeps and some with v8 swaps and always wanted a factoryV8. This thing is an experience to drive.

The plan for the Snazzy 392 was to recycle the parts I used for the black JL. RSE bumpers, warn zeon, 37" Nitto tires and KMC beadlock wheels.

I am having second thoughts on the wheels because I really, really like the OEM skinnies, but they are SKINNY! Even in the beadlock configuration they would only be 8"

I did a test fit the other day. BTW I can confirm that jeep did change tpms post June. My black 2021 JL built earlier in the year worked fine with the nittos and the 392 built in Sept does not work. I will turn it off with my tazer, but kinda disappointed. The 37s with 4.5" bs fit fine for street driving, but will be making friends with the body and sliders offroad. Not sure how I want to address at this time, maybe fender chop, maybe small lift (dont want to do that). Trying to take my time with this build.

Damn, swapping TPMS is one thing that takes a lot longer with beadlocks.

Yeah exactly. I just got all the bolts re-torqued torqued after about 200 miles of driving. A total of 3 torqueing sessions to finally dial them in. sheesh. Will tazer it for now.

Yesterday I slapped on my Rock Slide Engineering bumpers and warn zeon 8k. I also put the 37s back on for good, kept them off during break in.
