    Threw on my Kobalt toolbox. Then got a MetalMiller spare tire carrier. One of my favorite things so far. Great quality, and make the spare extremely accessible. Mostly it just looks awesome.​

    Threw on some Spidertrax spacers

    [​IMG]
    Then finally after almost two years with the truck, got it lifted! Instead of getting a kit I just put together everything based on what I use the truck for and what I want out of it. ​

    Took it on a nice trip of mud and trails with my friend's JK on 35s.
    Unfortunately, I don't have any good action shots, but whatever. Enjoy :D

    Helping this young man jump his jeep. That's him right there. Older cherokee, said he got it for $300. Oh really? I couldn't tell by the like-new interior!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    These guys got super stuck. Took forever to get them out (no me, somebody else got them.) Bed filled with people. They were cool about it, it was funny. Happened when I was parked weird to get to the jeep to jump it, so don't mind the weirdly tucked wheel.

    Westward ho, hoe

    [​IMG]

    That's my buddy sitting on the spare, and my other friend's JK behind me. This place has a few miles of trails in the woods, but also a mudpit/obstacle course type area.

    Had a great time, but now i've got some steering wheel vibs at highway speed. Hoping that a more thorough cleaning of behind the wheels will hopefully fix that.​
