Yeah, I didn't see the beadlocks on their site. Maybe James can get going on that aluminum beadlock business......

the 60s just I never realized how much of a difference in ground clearance the rock jocks (or dynatracs) have compared to stock 60s until one day I was parked right next to a friends w/ same size tires and ford HP 60s and it was nuts the difference. Under my diffs I have 13" of clearance and under the skid plate I have 23".

I always did like yellow. Like how you kept it low. How tall are your rear springs at ride height? Need to change my rears out to make it sit level and was looking at a set of 3.5 RE springs.

11" at ride height, they are 3.5 skyjacker springs that have been on my jeep for about 95,000 miles. I'm pretty sure that 3.5RE springs sit taller than mine do at ride height, even when mine were new.

I noticed you have an eaton e locker in the front. How do you like it? I am stuck between a detroit/arb/e locker for the front.

Thanks Adam

Big fan of the selectables, unfortunately the E-locker are back ordered ---have been for a while and will be for ??? So that help narrow it down for you.
i think I saw you loading up your jeep at the mounds--I was in the red grand cherokee on 39.5 tsl's

I really like the e-lockers, we are running into the same thing on a few builds right now--can't get the e-lockers so we are going to ARB's. i would suggest selectable.
