Day 2 lets get her out and a little dust on the tires!! Yeti 65 fits perfect under the cover. Roof top tent coming for over the bed, but this will do for now!

Even on the factory 285's these trucks look like ass. Had to dress her up in some real shoes to match the dress.

  • Method 312's on 9inch wheels
  • 37 x 12.50 x 17 Ridge Grapplers
  • The extra lift the rubicon springs provide with higher fender clearance allows 37's stock. Lift may come later after I wheel it a bit see how it works. I love low COG jeeps and big tires. The off Camber stuff isn't as sketchy when your not as tall.
  • Next up Winch install, floor mats and sill guards. Most likely flares down the road once I see how they look and maybe new bumpers but these work fine for a while.

I like the stance of your truck, also like that the tires do not stick that far out past the fenders. What are the specs. of the rims? Thanks.

These are the Method 312, They have a few sizes. I went with the 9" wheel, has some backspace to get them out but not stupid looking.

One rail down. Weld up the rest and then do the other. Going low mount so I can take tent off keep the rails on and still roll the cover back.

Way overpriced on a few of their modified Sport S Gladiators. $14999 mark up for $5000 worth of upgrades.

Those bed rails are pretty rad. Love the height at which the collapsed tent sits now.
