    Default Hello from Broomfield



    Hey everyone. My name is Rick and Im in Broomfield, CO. I bought a JLUR over the summer and have been getting out on the trails around the state. Looking to meet others to go out wheeling with and have some fun. Looking forward to what I can learn from this group. Just getting started with mods to the Jeep. New wheels, tires, and a lift is where I started.

    Welcome!!! Mind if I ask what direction you went for suspension and wheels? I'm debating between Metalcloak and Clayton myself along with do I go 35s or 37s.

    A couple great resources, if you're not already using them, wranglerforum.com and jlwranglerforums.com.

    Get ready for some winter wheeling in the snow!

    I was debating between the Metal Cloak Game Changer and Rubicon Express. I have a friend with a garage and they say they have had really good luck with the Rubicon Express. Said some of the other brands have had issues coming back in though they didnt have experience with MetalCloak. I did the Rubicon Express 2.5 lift but I hear the MetalCloak is a solid system. Was debating adding their skid plate system.

    For the wheels I did Fuel Vapor D560s. 17 x 10 with 35 x 12.5 BFG KO2. Now I sort of wish I did 37s but Ill probably move up down the road.

    If you put a 2.5 or higher lift, I would definitely go 37s.
    I have a 2021 JLUR Xtreme Recon, came from factory with 1.5 lift and 35s. I didnt even have to lift it and 37s fit great with no rubbing at all. Im still planning on adding a lift at some point because these stock springs sag when the Jeep is loaded up and bottoms out easy. Currently I removed the rear seat (100lbs of unused weight) and the stock suspension is perfect but I still would like another inch of lift to keep the skid plates from scraping as much as they do.

    Nice looking rig. What skid plates are you running under there?

    ASFIR engine and trans skid and MORE t-case skid, both aluminum. Easy install and way cheaper than the other companies

    Welcome! Be sure to check the forums during winter as well. While must runs are in the summer/fall, a small number of us like to go out in the snow sometimes
