Love your build. Those Fuel Beasts look like they were meant to be on your Gator JT. Great choice!

Thank you. Have to admit I puckered a little when I ordered them because I didn't even have my truck yet and it was a big bet. That said I have had a couple people ask me if I had them custom finished and I love them.

Looks F'in SWEEEET!

How happy are you that you went with the 11.5 wide tires? I am a skinny tire fan and those look just perfect to me.

The decision to go 11.5 was both cosmetic and functionality. Thinner tires do better on the snow and ice we suffer with 9 months a year and I am old enough that anything wider would have looked silly

And don’t forget the longer footprint when aired down for wheeling!

Really nice build.
I bought a Warn winch to install on my factory bumper until I saw your build. Guess I'm going to spend another couple grand on those bad ass bumpers. Cant wait. :)

Thanks for the pics. Good thing I already put my 4 kids through college.
Interested in adopting a slightly used 6 year old and funding his college also :)

BTW, dont tell my wife I even asked that question!

Which offset did you get for your Fuel Beast wheels? Looks like that size is available as either +1 or -12.
