    Finally swapped out the trail spare. Went with Mevotech inner and outer tie rods this time around.

    Also added some more Factor 55 shiny stuff.

    Ha lol yep - with the 35’s and doing the LCA’s with white poly bushings figured while I was already in there might as well do a new rack and add the ES poly bushings. More preventative for the next 50,000 miles.

    Decided to do something to the truck this weekend since shes been on the back burner for the last couple of months. Pulled skids for cleanup and painting. Also repaid some of my cracking core support with some 3/16 plate.

    IDK how fancy you want to get with the tail lights, but IMO some KC rock lights would be awesome. Dovetail looks awesome. You're going to love the bob, I very rarely drag my ass on anything now, made a huge difference offroad. Went from a 25 degree departure angle to 46 degrees.

    They look sick! I just hope the performance of those Jeep lights are worth all the trouble. :)

    Id love some kc lights, but i spent most of my budget on front suspension stuff. I ordered one of those light strips that go under the tailgate.

    How are the 7" lights mounted inside the housing?

    Haven’t got them mounted yet. But I will give you a update when they are. He wants to be able to adjust with the factory adjuster on the housing.

    They are a lot cheaper then a good set of aftermarket headlights for that truck. It was only about 80$ for the set of 7” jeep lights so might as well try it.

    This stupid shit. The outer crusty layer wasn’t too bad using a plastic razor/scraper. ANY suggestions getting the under layer off would be greatly appreciated.EB79F07B-6B4A-49C1-ADF0-578FA80048B1.jpg

    I soaked mine in GooGone and slowly peeled it off. More like pushing or scraping off with a plastic edge. It sucked.

    How much different is it to fit 315s over 285s? Is it just more trimming? I have everything I need (I think) to install 285s (CMC, SPC UCAs) but now I'm thinking I might just want to make the jump to 315s and not waste time between. I know I'll have to re-gear at that point but is there much else?
    Well one down side would be wheels. I have 7inch rims so Id have to upgrade those also.

    You'll need a super aggressive CMC and then hammering the inner fender wherever the tire rubs when stuffed.

    Thats on the list already also! get it all cleaned at once. I don't want to have to go back and do it again so I was planning on going all in on that.

    What about a truck that doesn’t see dirt? Asking for a “friend”
