Already had this sitting at the house, was too excited and started buying things I didnt really need...also thought I was getting it while it was still warm hence the mirrors, also threw on some hella black magics I had from a previous car

After going to Rausch Creek for the first time, and again for a "101" class I decided I wanted a snorkel since I was in the water a decent ammount

After this and hitting some stuff, I decided it was finally time for a lift. Went with a 2.5" Teraflex Coil lift with Bilstein 5100 shocks

Also added some tuck light headlights, rigid dually on the windsheild, and some much needed stickers

Now I need to figure out what to do for a tire carrier. Right now I have it in the back which doesnt bother me, but would like to get one ordered asap. I am thinking possibly the genright alum or steel carrier, I would love the evo but dont think I need that at this time. I also read that most dont work with stock wheels like I am running for now.

Any suggestions?

You have your tire pressure set at 36? :eek::eek: That's more then my stockers are at. lol

28 is a better number for those tires. Other then that nice build!

Looking good. As far as bumper advice, I have the EVO rockskins and carrier, and while its awesome, if you don't plan on keeping your jeep forever, it would be better to get a rear bumper and carrier. Poison Spyder makes a really nice one, and so does Schrockworks. Those were the two I was between before going with the EVO.

What is the mount you are using for your highlift? You think that will work with the EVO carrier?

I do feel as if I can keep this one for a very long time, I have the rugged ridge mount for the hilift, which just got bent recently so I was planning on removing it anyway. I think I am going to end up getting the genright steel carrier, I like the design of that one and also that you dont need to run corners for it, also I can still mount the hilift to it via tube clamps. The only problem is I would still need to get a bumper however if I ended up getting that carrier.

Not much of an update, but just ordered the Evo front bumper and stinger, vac relocation bracket, and teraflex upper and lower c-guessets....now to wait for everything, hopefully it ships fast

one of my extra cars may be sold this week so I will hopefully be ordering more goodies

plan is after the bumper
- evo sliders
- genright steel tire carrier
-poison spyder or jcroffroad rear bumper
-evo skids
-sport cage

thanks guys, i have 2 cars up for sale right now that will help fund a lot of parts once they finally sell which will be nice

waiting for my bumper is killing me, seems like its taking forever but i know itll be worth the wait......also really want to order my tire carrier but not sure if i should just wait till its warmer here since I wont be able to paint it...and dont really want to wait a while incase it does take a long time to get lol (genright steel is what ill be getting)

thanks for the kind words, yeah deff a great color

well gussets and vac pump kit showed up today, prolly will wait for my bumper to do the vac kit unless I get real bored or it warms up a little bit

I do have a good welder and a friend who is good, but not sure if we should tackle the gussets or just find a shop locally to do it. Ball joints would have to stay in if done at my house, but im really nervous about destroying them

You won't really know if you've cut enough until you try to slide the bumper on. Don't forget to sand off the burrs and then rattle can the bare metal.

Bumper today! So glad whoever I saw the trick with the socket and tape for the bumper bolts. Couldn't get the front stinger nuts on however is there a trick to this other than pulling off the bumper?

You mentioned about your stock rims not working with the evo carrier. I thought this was the case with the genright as well unless you request that when you order it. I believe I read that in a post somewhere awhile back when I was researching that carrier.

When I emailed genright they said the steel version does work with stock wheels, if needed I can always get new wheels when it shows up if its an issue

Ok just thought I would mention it. Just checked their website for the steel version and it says it fits any bolt pattern and wheel offset but not stock. Hope it works out for you and nice jeep by the way.:thumb:

Yeah I was worried about that which is why I asked. I still do have my doubts tho, but steel wheels would work for the time being

I can't wait till I start seeing packages like that at my house. I've seen them before but they were for my kids. Go figure. Maybe a little rent from them and I'll have my build a little sooner.:eek:

If it's a large area and you want to match the textured powdercoat, you can use a bedliner type spray paint.

If it's small and you just want it black any rattle can will work. I think I used flat black on mine. :thumb:

Yeah it's a few small spots right now from shipping basically, still need to pull it for the front stinger bolts anyway and to trim the frame a little more. Just been lazy since its been so cold

Well got everything unboxed last night...fenders look like they will take a while due to all the pieces for them. Got the tire carrier assembled as best as I could to make the install go faster, and I found I am missing the pins that keep the carrier closed so after a few calls to genright and them finding the order, they will be sending them out to me. Going to run around at lunch today tho to see if I can find something that will work untill I get the proper ones since I would like to install it this weekend. Also started to get the compressor together as well.

2 random shots from last night....hope to get some work started today on the jeep.

There are 1/2" receiver pins with handles at Harbor Freight for $5 a piece. Literally just bought 2 yesterday to replace the not-so-user-friendly pins that come with the EVO carrier. They are black finished with red handles.

I will have to check that out at lunch, I was going to hit tractor supply which has them as well but im sure they will be more expensive, may need some welding supplies tho so I can try and get the gussets finally installed that I keep looking at everyday

I was looking at these for another option. One nice feature is that you do not have a retaining clip to deal with. They are about $9 bucks at various locations, including sears.

finished up last night kind of late, but took a long break to eat dinner and find a proper wiring diagram for the lights, still need to go back and tuck the wire inside and put a rubber plug back in near the tail light but everything works. Plan for this weekend is to install the fenders and get the compressor mounted in the bay.

Also need to figure out what rear bumper to go with. Thinking poison spyder but not sure if I want to cut the rear frame rails or not. I wish evos new rear was ready for sale soon, along with the rock rails. Prolly will end up just getting the weld on versions however.

not a real exciting update, but ordered a set of the Strike Force Zebra tactical half doors today, they went on sale again with free shipping so should be a good summer set. With them being light I will prolly run them to the trail and then pull them when I get there. I do plan on painting them I think depending on what it looks like with the black and white

really need to get some paint for my rear fender wells since the white is bugging me and it makes my 35s look tiny....kind of wish i went with 37s in the beginning lol

Didn't you cut and reuse your fender pants? I did and that covers everything in there. I suppose many don't like the plastic look, but they do fit nice with those fenders.

I trimmed my inner plastics, to protect against all the mud here in Illinois. There is still a lot of gecko green in the wheel wells though. Both tub and pinch seam are visible. I need to paint mine, just not sure yet how to go about it...

Did you prep the surface at all with primer, or just clean it? And I don't know how far up to paint... There is a point on the front where the fender blends into the body, so I'm not sure how far up to paint... I'll post a picture of what I'm talking about in a bit...

I was going to cut them, but after having issues with my fronts fitting odd with the fenders installed I decided to just leave them off for the time being. Still unsure if I want to cut them or just paint them, hopefully it warms up this weekend so I can spray them. Its been cold and windy here recently so havnt been able to get anything done really.

I didn't use primer...I used a wet towel and "cleaned" the surface though. Sprayed everything on the rears. Matched the fender line to the pinch seam (which is also black) on the front.

Had a fun time when I stopped home for lunch, my half doors showed up and of course I had to test fit them before I went back to work. Really wish I would have just gotten half doors when I got my jeep. Wanted to get some oem ones but couldnt justify the cost of them being unpainted. The strike force doors are very lightweight and have extra storage inside which is very nice. I added the rugged ridge mirror delete plates which one fits well and the other like crap. Not sure If its the plate itself or just the way the door was drilled for the mirrors. They do accept oem mirrors which I may run but I feel without them it will be easier to store these in the back if I end up taking them off at the trails since they would lay flat. Fitment is good, may mess with them a little to see if I can get it to be any better. I also am not sure how well these seal so I will have to be careful doing water crossings.

may have to try that after messing with them a little more and when its warmer, also missing a small piece that I have to double check for when I get back home, prolly missed it in the box. Makes the latch fit better

Still need to find a hitch to mount as well but need one like doesnt have nuts welded to it I think if I plan on running bolts through the bumper and the hitch.

also should really trim the pinch seams out back, but when testing flex nothing rubbed so just keep pushing it off like my c-guesset install.

Some random pics from this past weekend. Went out with my friend on a local axcess trail he goes to on sundays. A lot of people ride quads there so some of the trails would be too tight for jeeps, but it was still fun and had a decent hill climb.

Looking forward to see you at Rausch soon , there's plenty of mud to sling there to and lots of water to rinse it off. Although I think I'm slowly being converted into a rock crawler. there is something about trying to find the right way threw that is intriguing.

yeah id rather be in the rocks rather than mud

So need to make up my mind today, should I order just the oil pan skid....or do the full system? next after that will be rock sliders but may end up getting them at the same time if i only order the oil pan skid depending on the time either can ship...dont want to wait weeks for the skid to show up.

Dangerous. Use your high lift jack and slowly winch it out of your frame ends instead. Go slow and use something inelastic like a tow strap or a chain! Don't want to get tagged with one of those. Mine were loose, like 1/8" - 1/4" clearance. So my frame ends bend inwards in the middle now due to the bolts! Haha

hmm even better idea prolly do that if i can find something else to attach the hilift with, lucky you myne both had to be ground down to match the frame ends...2nd one went better than the first

its a good winch (from the one time i have used it). didnt heat up or short like some people experienced/heard on here. i have read a couple reviews from outside sources on the winch and it finished in the top 3 behind the warns. so for price its a good one. i will see if i can find the review again

Your lights look sweet! You could always put them in the A pillar for temporary. It is real easy to run the wires to that spot and the A pillar is a great place for switches.

yeah i know which one you are talking about, that was for the engo which I thought about getting but dont like either finish they offer. It would save be quite a bit tho which wouldnt hurt since the warns are expensive with synthetic rope.

Well for me right now im sure id be fine, i can always have a shop weld rings on the steel wheels anyway if i want beadlocks. I just want to save my oem wheels from being beaten up as bad and also put my stock tires back on incase I ever need them.

big thing is to go with the 4.5 offset or the 4.25....just dont want to get hassled for my tires sticking out

One of the reasons I got the c.o.d. package was for the wheels. I wish I would have thought ahead,now they are past the point of no return.:(

I was going to go with warn, but after seeing yours twice and having been pulled out myself I thought why not just save some money, plus they have the same warranty. Now wondering if I should upgrade to an optima battery or stick with the stock one to see how long it lasts.

I think the only battery troubles you run into is when you're actually using the winch.. I could be wrong though..

just stick with the stock one. if you end up getting more accesories or start using your winch a lot then i would upgrade. no need to ATM tho. :twocents:

I got the yellow top because I had my stock battery replaced in korea and it was the wrong size.. it worked fine for starting but i didn't trust it otherwise.. also I could be crazy but I swear my headlights are brighter now with the Optima..

Need to call my tire guy to see how much 37s would be, thinking now may be a good time to upgrade. I think all I will need is either a little more lift or body spacers.

Do them yourself. It will take a bit or time but then all you have to do is bring them to get balanced.

hinrichs
05-01-2013, 07:52 PM
I will be mounting them myself for sure, but can't get the stock tires swapped back onto my wheels and the nittos pulled off until then

If I had the spare cash id just order some 37s and not have this issue lol
