2020 Overland - "Thrax"

I went back and forth on getting Rubicon or an Overland. I was about to drive 7 hours one way to get a white Rubicon with tan leather when I found this billet silver Overland 2 hours from my house with Tan interior. I wouldn't have considered the color if it wasn't for the tan leather. I've always been a (mostly) white vehicle person, but the tan leather with the silver really pops. I think I got a good price @ $43,900 - Doesn't have backup sensors or remote start. I don't care about he backup sensors but I would like remote start, which i will be adding shortly through aftermarket.

1st Mod - Tire & Wheels

I went with 35x12.50R20 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs on XD 778 wheels. I went with these tires since had them on my King Ranch Expedition 4x4 & they performed well. They also had a 60lb weight rating which was one of the lowest in this class of tire. I'm trying to keep the unsprung weight gain to the minimum. I ended up with these wheels due to offset. I found about 10 wheels I liked and then started going through the offset available. I wanted about 1"ish of tire sticking out past the fender, not the 3-4" you see on most setups. These ended up coming in a +30 offset and it turned out exactly where i wanted it. Everyone at the tire shop was huddled around when they were rolling the first wheel up and saying (no way that fits without rubbing).... ZERO rub on stock suspension!!!.

Stock wheels measure 32.25" & the new setup measure 34.25"

Many more small add-ons to come - step bars, bed liner, bed cover, tazer, peddle commander, interior gadgets, front bumper, winch, 2" mopar lift, tint, & a wireless charging cell phone craddle that doesn't block any air vents or windshield (<got this one figured out but gotta order 3 different setups to pirate pieces together)
