Follow along for my build. To start off, the dealer swapped out the stock wheels/tires for some new takeoffs that look better with the Granite.

On the way home we found a dirt road leading to a boat ramp.

First thing was side steps for a little protection and to make it easier for the wife to get in. I used N-Fab because we have them on her JK and we like them.

As you can see I also took off the plastic pieces between the fender and bumper. Also unpictured I added the Jeep slush mats.

Next up I added a roll up tonneau cover. It was an Amazon special.

Looks good, did you notice any front end sag after install?

I am sure there is some. I have 3/4" spacers for the front to offset it also, but those are a project for another weekend.

Added DV8 fender flares and front inner fenders. I still need to order the rear inners. Next is 35s and I'll be done except for the ham radio.

So I did a thing...
IMG_20200203_145754959_HDR.jpg


Milestar Patigonia's 35x12.50x18 on my stock wheels. I did add spacers just to be safe.

Then I had to have a way to air up/down.

What are you first impressions of the Patagonia's? I have been looking at these for about a month now. Waiting to pull the trigger.

Love them so far. Have about 500 road miles on them and they are quiet for a m/t and they balanced very well. No off-road time yet, but hope to change that tomorrow at Rush Offroad in Eastern KY.

Nice! Any issues staying in 8th on the highway or is constantly dropping gear to keep steady? Had a 2010 JKUR that drove me nuts on the highway once I switched to 35s. Put a tuner in and it changed everything. If we drive the JT, its most likely long distance, just trying to see what the characteristic changes are when switching to 35s in this one.
