What is your plan for the firewall and body mount? Also what kind of offset you thinking about running with your 37’s?

well once I get the tires, I’m gonna start on the fire wall. Body mount will most likely be relocated.

I’m gonna run them on these wheels for now and if need be I’ll run some steel wheels with more offset. Main reason being I plan on sas and then I’ll have to buy new wheels for 8 lug

How they should look. Still trying to find good enough edge trim to stick. Seems im always losing one part of it or antoher.

Have you used the“self adhesive” edge trim? That’s what I’ve got on it now, I have hope it’ll stay on lol

Yeah, has the goop in it. it sticks well for the most part, just a few spots that dont like it. But I think the dirt and rubbing on rocks doesnt help lol

I would imagine that doesn’t help lol. I guess for 8$ a piece I’ll just keep swapping it out if it falls off lol

UploadAdventure tested out the harbor freight “offroad” jack on our latest adventure and it worked well!

Didn’t sink into the ground, didn’t break. Two 👍
