Really like that Vector OffRoad Curve, looks very useful for many different things.
What hardware are you using to mount things on it and are they a separate purchase?

I'm using a mixture of RAM Mounts (Tablet and GoPro) and 67 Designs Mounts (Phone). A lot of people swear by 67D, and they definitely make an impressive product. RAM Mounts are significantly less expensive, though, so it kind of depends on your budget and what you value!

I'd be happy to take a few detailed pictures for you, if you want!

That would be awesome as I would like to mount my GoPro, my cellphone and a tablet to start.

That's exactly what we have. I'll take a few pictures tomorrow for you!

Hit the trails this weekend with fellow forum member @Renegade. Here are a few pictures of the Evo Overland Stage 1 kit in action. I'll be posting an installation/initial impressions write up soon, so if you're looking at Evo, hopefully it will help! Also, feel free to ask any questions about the lift, the Milestar Patagonias, or anything else that piques your interest!

Chattanooga, TN. I split my time between here and central Florida, so if you know of any good wheeling down there let me know!
Where in Chattanooga? I'm not far from there, and I've been looking for some places.

There are a few spots in Prentice Cooper State Forest. If you're ever around and want to hit a trail, I'd be happy to show you!

Sounds great! I'll give you a holler next time I make it up there!

Awesome rig! How do you like the EVO kit? Which shocks did you choose to run and what’s the lengths fully extended and collapsed? I’m at a cross road between them or the Rock Krawler X factor.

Love the kit so far. I went with shock extensions for now, so I can't help with that question. Planning to wait for Falcon adjustables to arrive on the market. Kings are too pricey for my blood, but I have my heart set on adjustables just because I've never run any before.

Thanks! Assuming Fox factory rubicon shocks and not the Mopar lift ones. If so I may go that route.

Spent the week doing a few installations. First, the Vector OffRoad Curve. Installation was straightforward and easy. I've been running their JKE-Dock for a while in my JKU, and it's honestly irreplaceable if you use Gaia GPS for navigation or film while driving.

The second installation was a beast. Evo's 2.5" Overland Stage 1 kit. Did it in the driveway with a few friends, and it was a monumental project given our resources and minimal experience. Can't beat the results, though! Wheel and tire combo is 17x9 Black Rhino York Wheels wrapped in 38x13.5 Milestar Patagonias. They clear at full lock. Haven't flexed the new setup out all the way yet, but there appears to be plenty of room!
