The aftermarket support for the new vehicles makes me want to take the plunge. Making your own stuff is cool, but sometimes you would just like to buy it and be done.

However, buying new won’t happen. I’d probably have to go back to work to afford the payment…not worth it to me.

37” Nitto Trail Grappler and 38” Nitto Ridge Grappler arrive. Interesting the Ridge Grappler on right is narrow, both in stack of five and both 12.50 tires…

stiffer side walls on the Trail Grappler. I have the TGs in 40" on my JK and 295/65/17 RGs on my Ram and Love them both. Awesome tires!!

Yes the TG is D load and these RG are C load, the thread is actually thinner on RG 12.50 by 3/4”

I just took the plunge on a new JL to swap out the wife's JKU. less kids, less doors. And I couldn't pass up the deal the dealership gave us. My buddy is the salesman i went thru, in the 16 months we owned the JKU, I made money on it. Everything is in short supply, so I was actually able to get out of the JKU with cash ahead, and put a nice chunk down on a JL rubicon. And i'm gonna say, I love the JL way more than i ever liked the JK platform!!

Wheel spacers or broken hub on the XJ?
Broke axle joint followed by ball joints… we got it up on flat ground using its winch, log and ratchet straps. Going back to do field ball joints install
