Took off the shitty door edge guard decals that were already turning yellow and gathering grime. Looks so much better with them gone.

BFG 37x12.50 KO2's load range 'C' just installed...Overall I like the tires but what I am not thrilled about is the fact they are noticeably narrower than the 35" KO2's. (315/70R17) Honestly if I knew when I ordered them (have had them since they first came out but held up by backordered Dana parts...) they were not nearly as wide as my 35's, I probably would not have bought them. I really think that for the 2-door JL's a 35" tire is probably the sweet spot. In Arizona (sand and rock mostly) the wider contact patch of the 35" KO2's is a plus...

Also after installing the 2.5" Metalcloak springs, her ass end is now up in the air:mad: The front sits level side to side (installed a 1/2" Teraflex spacer on passenger front) and is the correct height-so at least I don't have to zipper the front end yet again! She did not sit high in the rear with either the stock Rubi suspension or with the Mopar lift...After installing new rock rails, I will deal with her ass end...
BTW, in the picture below the parking lot slopes up for drainage...

nice looking 2dr

a 315/70r17 is 12.4" wide, your 37x12.5 should be the same. but if you look at a 365/70r17 tire it is 14.4" wide. because you went with a skinny 37 it looks narrower. Have you physically measure the width or are you eyeballing it.

Thanks!

Tread is about 3/4" narrower on the 37" KO2's than my 35" KO2's. I will post pictures later of a new 35 (my old spare) vs my new 37 spare side by side and with measurements.

Put our old plastic Mopar steps back on as the wife didn't like the steel steps that were on it. Gotta admit the Mopar steps are a much better step as they are long & wide w/a solid grip, they're also higher off the ground. Only problem is it won't take much out on the trail to destroy them.

Hopefully my step skids that I fab'd will keep them from getting chunked or snapped, time will tell :)

Got my amber led lights for the fenders installed.

Much better then the 7444NA that was in there. So whole front is led now.

Lookin good Rescue. Im personally not a big LED guy as I feel like the Halogens are more than sufficient and I like that the heat melts the snow. But I can certainly see why people love them. They look fantastic and are a worthwhile upgrade. One thing that always bugs me is when I see other Jeeps with the Led heads and fogs, but the halogen Drl/turn signal assembly. Looks very mismatched. Either do it all or none....so good for you for noticing that and going all out. Looks awesome!

Thanks. Not sure why they would do it from factory. Even the side marker lights are led from factory lol.
