I’m not seeing any difference.
So all that work for some unprecievable difference?

Except the needle and the tach/speedo circle is slightly more redder orange than orangey orange.

You are also using two photos of different exposure setting and framing to trick people into believing there is.
I’m going to have to call you out because you seem to be full of shit.

If indeed those 2 photos are yours, congratulations you just commented federal crime in tampering the mileage of your vehicle.
I don’t appreciate the inflammatory tone you came at me with, but that’s besides the point. One of those photos is not mine. The red one is my updated cluster and the orange one is a picture from online. I should have made that clearer and apologize for that. As I said in several of my posts, it is illegal to tamper or manipulate mileage with the intent to change or rollback mileage. It is not in fact illegal to correct mileage to match the original odometer, at least in Florida, but it’s important to check local laws. If you look online you can find several websites that can correct your odometer for you legally.
As for whatever exposure thing you’re talking about, you don’t have to believe me, but check out the gauge cluster from a Sahara and a Rubicon online for yourself and you’ll see a difference. I like the red over the orange and that’s good enough for me. :)

Okay! So just making it clear that the only difference is that the orange tach/speedo line became more redder orange than orangey orange. 👍

Because by the sound of your original post it sounded like there was a whole new world to be seen.

Apologize for the seemingly rude comment.

I’m going to have to call you out because you seem to be complete full of shit.

I’m not seeing any difference.
So all that work for what exactly?

Except the needle and the tach/speedo circle is slightly more redder orange than orangey orange. But that might just be a exposure issue.

You are also using two photos of different exposure setting and framing to trick people into believing there is. I’m also assuming the first photo isn’t yours, since the “before” mileage is at 31k and the “after” one is at 18k miles.

If indeed those 2 photos are yours, congratulations you just commented federal crime in tampering the mileage of your vehicle.

What size tires? How does that lift ride compared to stock? I was considering mopar lift but might do the mk instead.
Running 35s. As for ride, it is a little stiffer than stock but was expected. Ran MC on my JK as well.

Not really much of a difference, other than the red vs orange for me at least. Some people can upgrade their smaller screen to the larger 7 inch one. I apologize for not being more clear, I updated both of my posts with clarification that only one of the photos was of mine and the other was one I found online. I also clarified that it is in fact illegal to manipulate your mileage to something other than what was already there.

Installed the "Seat Jackers" from Desert DoesIt this morning. Easy install, definitely raises the front of the seat. I will have to put some seat time in to determine if they help with comfort.

Put on a set of 33" General Grabbers and installed a Mopar fuel door. No lift on my new JL 80th Edition, so the 33s look just right. To me, that fuel door should be a standard item on all Wranglers.

Next week. sway bar disconnects. I'm telling myself, "Self, that's it. The Jeep is all set now."

We'll see... ;)

Well, OK.

I'll admit to adding a couple of decals. And AVS vent shades. And a bug deflector on the hood. And a fire extinguisher. I already had a 1st aid kit and a folding GI shovel. But all that was before the tires and fuel door, so it doesn't count. 😎

Slapped on the KM3 39s and some Apex valves on my wheels. Added the Motobilt rear bumper.

I am thinking about moving up to 39’s after my 37’s wear out. Although with the AAL Highline Fender bracket the 37’s look small! What lift height and gearing are you running?

I have the Sahara AAL fender bracket so it sits Lower than the rubicon’s. I’m running the Metalcloak 3.5” lift with Rubicon axles. 4:10s for now. Tbh it doesn’t feel much different than when I was running 35s.
