uvalax236, I plan on it, I need to get back out to GWNF with my new mods. :D

05kjrenny, the flaires are completely stock and uncut. As per the ARB installation manual, however, I did cut all of the well liner off that hung below the lower edge of the bull bar. I also cut off the bell shaped section of liner surrounding the washer bottle. The liners still catch on my tire tread where I cut them, so I'm going to have to do a little more trimming.

Thanks for the compliments!

Nice KJ

Did you add some spacers to the rear? yours looks more level then mine... however i don't have a ARB pushing the front down either.

My front used to be higher than the back, it's dropped to where it is now since I added the bullbar a few days ago. If you mean lift spacers, no, my only suspension modification is the Frankenlift. All four wheels do, however, have 1.25" wheel spacers to prevent rub on the sway bar. The front was meant to look lower when the truck was designed, so before the bull bar it looked kind of funny as all of the aesthetic lines on the truck were off. The lines went straight across instead of sloping down like they do again now. In the picture it looks like the car is sloping down towards the front but in actuality the rock rails are perfectly parallel to the ground.

What wheel spacers did you go with? How long have you had them on and any problems? I was thinking of going with SpyderTrax..i have heard some good things?

I went with the Spidertrax WHS-002. They're much safer than cheaper spacers because they're wheel and hub centric (a single spacer for the entire wheel rather than one for each bolt) and utilize thread lock to keep the lugs from unthreading. I've had the spacers installed since December without any problems and I don't get any more rubbing on the sway bar. Spidertrax has pretty good customer support and phoned me after I ordered them to make sure I got them installed correctly (liability). I'd recommend them. BTW, for others that have them, how often do you check the spacer's lug tightness? I'd think that every time you'd check it you'd break the thread lock and have to re-apply it to every bolt.

Now you just need a Rock Lizard rear bumper to harden up the rear end. That ARB sticks out more than I thought. Nice bumper though but (just me) I would skip on the bull bar piece, if you can get it w/o it. That's just me.

Your KJ looks great, none-the-less.

All I can say is WOW! Are those 265/70s or 265/75s ? I think the Renegade must come with a larger stock wheel that allows that.

kickit_in4wheel, I've got OME 927's in the front and OME 948's in the rear.

SavageSS27, I don't have a Cardomain, but I do have my own site: www.fuzzymuzzle.com -> Jeep -> Liberty I was going to set up a Cardomain but the whole deal where they get exclusive rights to my work made me change my mind. I'm still working on the KJ section, so bear with me :)

Now as you guys said, I just need to get her dirty!
