Looks great, can we get some close ups of the new tires? Also i'm curious can you crank your t-bars any more to make it level? The reason i ask is because i want to do the same thing you did: crank the tbars and shackle it, but i want it to sit level. I'm also planning to run either 265/75/16's or 275/70/16's...

yeah you can crank them more, i just stuck to 4 turns as that seems to be the magic number around here, that and i like the rake that it has front to back. As for pics i will take some and post them up today

Mud flaps + serious offroading = torn off mud flaps. Get rid of them before you leave them behind, lol. I backed up into mine at a steep "step" offroad and they got caught between the tire and the terrain and that was all she wrote, as they say.

If you're going to do a lot of water, consider extending your axle/t-case/transmission vents. The cooling effect when you hit water suddenly can cause a suction on these lines, and you don't want them where they can "sip" water.

Nice looking truck!

What kind of tires are those? I see Wrangler, are they the same as stock?

I would just take off the mud flaps, I did and yeah the bottom looks weird but it looks better then having the mud flap slapping against the wheel or something

Look like they are 265/75/16's since he said he was looking into them in his first post.
