Had some spare bolt style led lights collecting dust in the garage. Felt a inspirational moment and bit the bullet and drilled into my rear roll bar plastic trim. Spliced the trunk light in the same trim and viola, a bright discrete trunk light. I think the leds cost me $5 for the pair at an off-road expo in 2019.

Looks great! What kind/size tires are those? Looks like probably stock rims as well (which is my plan for the moment)......
Thanks the wife is happy now. When I traded my Cummins with a 6” lift and 37s, the first thing she said was it needs a lift and tires :LOL: Lift goes on Saturday.

295/75r17 nitto ridge grapplers. They measure to about 33 3/8 mounted. Yes stock wheels. No rubbing on the street and not much of change in mileage once I corrected the speedo.

question for everybody out there. What are your tires measuring putting a level across the top measuring from ground to bottom of level 285s, 315 ‘s, 35 inch and 37 inch?
295/75r17 ridge grapplers brand new are 33 3/8 hanging on the spare mount. Not sure on the ground with the weight of the jeep on them. It’s raining or I would go measure for you

Edit: stopped raining at 33 pounds with the weight of the jeep on them 32.5”

Busy project weekend. Installed Rubicon shocks and springs. Before my winch and bumper measured at middle of fender flare at 35.5 front/36 rear. Post winch and bumper 34 3/4 front. I put on 3/4 spacers ontop of the 58/59 front Rubicon springs. In the front after settling over night I measured 37 front and with 89/90 rear springs 37 1/2 driver rear and 37 3/8 passenger rear. Yes, I put the larger number springs on the passenger side. Cant figure out how I am 1/8 inch lower. Im not tearing the rear apart to chase down 1/8 of an inch. I installed the rear springs with the tags on the up side. Definitely rides better than the Sport suspension. I also installed all new spring isolators front and back and Fox bumpstops as well as a Fox steering stabalizer. Also installed a Bolt hoodlock and Lamin-x amber fog light covers and painted my cowl vent. That storm that came through on Saturday caused me to split my project into two days. Ran out of time to go and play with the new suspension.
