    So here's a bit of good news! I just talked to Tekton and was told that a lot of their stuff is in fact, MADE IN THE USA!! :usa-flag:

    All of their screwdrivers, nut drivers, punches and chisels...

    Well, you would only need an inch lb torque wrench that went to 120 and you can definitely get that but for beadlocks, it can be real tiring being that it's so small. A ft lb torque wrench will get...

    Just out of curiosity, what do you need a torque wrench that starts at 10 ft. lbs. for? Would it not just be as easy to use an inch lb. one?

    1. It took 2 guys 2 days to install everything.
    2. Off Road Evolution charges a flat rate for the install.

    Hope that helps :)



    LOL - it'd be nice to have Off Road Evolution do the install...

    With Rubicon axles, 3.5" of back spacing is what I would recommend if only because there are so many wheel choices available. When it comes time to upgrading axles, 72.5" would be ideal and I would...

    For now, the plan is to run what we have with wheel spacers. We will most likely find a replacement set of wheels with 3.5" of back spacing. That's what you really need.

    Thanks guys. Like many of you, I started getting Tekton tools to replace or complete my trail tools. After discovering how well they did, I started adding them to my garage tools. As mentioned, if...

    Yup. With as much flex as you get with EVO coilovers (not all coilover kits are made the same), it's helpful to have long arms being that they'll reduce the amount of axle swipe you'll see at a full...

    Thank you my friend. We're super excited with what we now have :yup:



    Mel's guys are super fast for sure :crazyeyes:

    We just used what came from EVO. Always best to start there and so far, I think it's a good fit for us. :yup:

    We were able to keep the Synergy Steering system and Rancho rear track bar. EVO has a front track bar that comes with the kit and so we just installed it. Otherwise, everything pretty much got...

    Oh yeah, the Coopers are physically bigger in size. Not only because what we had were 13.50s but I'm pretty sure even the 12.50s are wider than Trail Grapplers. After installing them, even Mel said...

    :cheesy: Thank you :)



    Yeah, they're pretty small for what we're running. Almost pulled the trigger on 40's but I know we'd break shit. :rolleyes2:

    In my opinion, the ride is without question, better than stock on pavement and crazy smoother off road.

    Sorry for not posting anything sooner. On the ground, we have it setup at about the same height as we were before if not a bit lower. Maybe about 3Ē of lift and so you canít really see a difference...

    Wasnít planning on a set of new shoes let alone Nitto Trail Grapplers but theyíre what Mel could get in a pinch and are narrower and an easier fix than getting new wheels with less back spacing. Hope...
