Yes they do but I will never buy anything from them again. I had problems with the new design radious arms and they basically told me to get bent. They are more then happy to sell you a 2k dollar lift kit but any problems with it and keep in mind it was there F up and it oh well nothing we can do.

Er.....no. I think they are pretty much crap as do most serious Jeep offroaders that I know. Give me Old Man Emu any day of the week.

Good looking truck, Quoy. Love the MTR kevs. Looking at getting a set to replace my Bridgestone Duelers this summer. Just wish they had 'em in a 33x10.5 r15. I'm going to have to pick up a set of 16" rims (Jeep Moabs) to get the metric equivalent. Don't want to go to 12.5" wide tires to get the height ( tthey rub on the control arms and spring perches).

I had OME's on my Land Cruiser a few years back and they rode good but... Like 6 months later they were completly bent and sagging. I have sense done an SOA with 1.5 ALCANS and they kick ass.

For me I have had 3 jeeps with Skyjacker and never had a problem.

If you get a more positive offset wheel like I did it won't rub and it also gives you a good excuse to buy those bush fender flares. The wife can't even get mad cause if you don't get them you will get a ticket because the tires stick out too far.

If you go to a 285/75r16 that is 32.9 inches tall and 10.9 inch wide. That's pretty close to what you are looking for.

Oh I'll be down at the jeep Jamb. on Easter next year. If your there we will have to get a beer and talk some Broncos stories. Now I only have to decided if I want to bring the Jeep or Toyota .

I understand the whole backspacing deal. It's my daily driver, so keeping the milage reasonable is a factor. I'm on 4.10 gearing right now and the 285/75r16's are about as much rubber as I want to run, I'd like to keep 5th gear useful. I'm actually going to a low CG setup on this one (all I've ever owned is Jeeps, 1 CJ5 V8, 2 CJ7's, and this TJ). One of these days it will be retired to weekend duty and then regear and 35's. Not a big fan of the Bush"crackers", more of the Zenon Flat fender flares for now, metalcloaks when the 35's go on. How are the MTR's treating you on road? Working with the boys at Rokmen there in Denver, this is pretty much where mine will be until then:

Just put them on.

I have the Gen 1 MT/R on my Jeep and love them. I have the KM2's on my wife's Toyota, jury is still out on them but so far pretty good.

I own a shop so tires are important to me. The Kevlar's have everything going for them on paper. Reviews have been outstanding so they should be great. I'm just not sold on the look of them. I mean I understand it's about function but it's looks too.

Oh did you know they used the NASA's super computer to design them . That's pretty sweet.

What do you think of the shell on the truck ? I don't know that I'm sold on it. I think it may look better without it

The crowd on Jeepforum.com are all pretty high on the MT/R Kevs. Most like them better than the 1st gen MT/R as well. I've been wanting to put a set on the Jeep since they came out, but needed to use up the 'Stones first.

I like the shell just fine. For me, I like the functionality of a shell day in and day out. Also, they help with mileage if you do a fair bit of highway driving.

Yeah, it is. A Chevy 305. They put it in 12 or so years ago.

Why do it? Because why not?

Love the jeep! I bought a 99 in March! I want to pick a 2'or 2.5 inch left on it. But honestly scared of what they call the dealth rolll, or so thing like that! Plus I don't have much skills doing that type of thing. What all do u recommend to life the jeep with creating problems in the future?

Thanks, Tank. Start out by joining Jeepforum.com, reading the FAQ for TJs, and filling out your Jeep profile. Great way to get started and doesn't cost anything. There is a wealth of info (Jeep porn) out there. PM me, I'll be glad to chat it up with you and offer some guidance. Just remember that JEEP stands for Just Empty Every Pocket! Welcome to the family and don't forget to wave!

The Death wobble is for real. Scary stuff there. The only time you are really going to have to worry about that is if you go with a Long arm lift. I just can't see going with a long arm on a 2.5 lift. Even then duel steering dampeners and NO lose parts you won't have any issues. My tech is putting a 4" rough country lift in a 94 Grand Cherokee right now. I throw some pics up of what to watch out for if you want.

On the St Joe River, Lolo National Forest in the Idaho Panhandle. Tons and tons of roads like this, paved and unpaved. Great for riding, fishing and being alone. Definitely off the grid here.
