Are 18″ rims required to clear the rotors? I figured they keep it at 17″ to fit stock rubicon rims…

It was a tight squeeze for my finger between the caliper and rim. This is with 18×9 4.5 backspacing. Kevin said he was told a 17″ will fit with the correct backspacing.

More pictures of the build. Kevin is doing pretty much all the work and I am watching handing tools and helping move stuff. Slow and steady!

You can see above that the axles are 69″ wide with 4.5 backspacing on a 9″ wheel with 13.5 wide Toyos Kevin’s tire is 11.75″ from the frame rail which was Metalcloak recommends.

Stock steering was a bolt on replacement for the new Mopar 60. Nice touch from the factory. Dana 30 vs Mopar 60.

Lastly, the big reveal almost. I had to head out for dinner with the wife, but Kevin was wrapping up the rear lug nuts. He needs to bleed the brakes, find some driveshafts, alignment and other odds and ends and this monster should be out on the trail soon!!

Kevin,
Where did you order your tires from? May I ask what their cost was?

I’ve owned Toyo MTs before and they worked well for me.

Pick up drive shafts tomorrow! Install those, bleed brakes, test drive!

Remaining items after that… alignment, trim flares, paint rear wheel wells, wire lockers and new front side marker lights.

You can do the brakes while awaiting the DLs.
Do you need to trim the flares right away?
You can get LED side marker lights either at a trailer store, or through Warrior products as a direct plug/bolt in. ~40 bucks.

I’ll have the DLs before I have time to bleed the brakes. :)

Other than alignment, the other items can wait. I should have it out for a test drive this weekend, minus the aligment. dance
