She can flex OK.

Now that’s flexing it, looks great. Ok is an understatement.

I decided to test the limits of my current setup, and this was the result. Bump stops front and rear were touching, but not before the front tire got into the fender a bit. Hopefully, I'll be correcting that in the next few weeks (especially since I plan to finally ditch the factory shocks/extensions).

What shocks are you going with?
I have the same tires currently without a lift.

I'm not sure yet. I'm considering King's because they're sure to play nice with Evo's suspension, but I've yet to make a decision. I'll definitely let you know when I do!

Bent Creek Gap Road

It is really a gravel road with camping spots. I was using AllTrails app for the first time and was looking for an easy ride, ended up seeing minivans and a Prius....just happened to find a muddy spot and those rocks.

I think there are some good trails around there, just gotta know exactly where.

Will try Brown Mountain next time.
Great looking Gladiator ! Congrats ! Love the articulation.. Come up to my end of town and try Hungry Valley OHV - probably one of the most versatile OHV around...., and it is huge.. There are some hills that can get the adrenaline flowing. Maybe, we can try for a Gladiator meet up ? That would be fun !

I just finished putting on a 3" lift. But for the last 2000 miles I daily drove on them with NO LIFT and never had an issue, this included mild offroading and turning lock to lock. I have the Method Vex wheels, not sure what back spacing.

One annoying thing is that the 38" won't fit in the underbed spare location. I'm hoping the Rock Krawler PRO-X rear suspension will allow me to fit it as it removes the track bar. I won't know until I buy it, and that won't happen for at least another 6+ months.


@Westcoastflea I want these tires and have a 2" Mopar lift. Any rubbing when you hit a bounce in the road or a pothole at speed?

We had a chance to flex and measure for bumpstops. Hopefully we can take some beautiful offroad pictures like others have posted in the near future. The only thing we are waiting for is rear bumpstops and air lines for the lockers.
