PostSubject: Why I missed the Meet and Greet...   Mon 22 Feb 2010, 1:41 pm

Sorry I missed the Meet and Greet on Sat. Heres my excuse...


Removed the 2.5" BB, Installed 3.25" RC lift, New 35" Nitto Mud Grapplers and a set of spidertrax spacers. And the damn thing Still isn't sitting level....

I noticed the back tires are pretty close to that pinch seam everyone cuts, but I've heard that it dosen't make a difference since the tires go up and backward when they flex... true? do I need to cut it?

How far is it nose down? Most end up putting a .75 puck up front bc of the winch/bumper

You are excused! Looks great. Looks like you have the OEM rear bumper still, so I would wait until you get an aftermarket bumper/tire carrier that will probably level it out perfect. I have the opposite set up right now, rear bumper/tire carrier, OEM front bumper and now I have "ass drag", AKA reverse rake.

What front bumper is that? Can you post me a frontal pic?


P.S. When the club guys installed my lift, they (Jonathon) was all too happy to pull out that saws all and trim the pinch seams. I'm running 35 mud gapplers as well. I'm glad he did, just seemed a little to close for my tastes, that sharp edge next to my big old tires made me nervous.

Upp4it, heres your "full frontal" lol...


It's the MBRP full-width prototype. a little different from the production full-width bumper they're selling now. this one was on their jeep at the SEMA show last year....





I think I'll trim mine just to be on the safe side...

I have an OME lift with 35's and the back tires were rubbing on the rails. I cut the rails so they wouldn't rub and cut the pinch seam just to be safe.

I have 3" lift and 35's, I have stuffed my rears up into the stock fender flares but it never has rubbed on the pinch seem that I am aware off, eventually I will trim it just because it looks goofy sticking out there. You have a very nice rig BTW...love those tires
