My garage clearance is about 7'4" and the Jeep sits at about 7'1" with the 4" lift and basket. I could park out on the street but I just wouldn't feel good about it.

I would ditch the rack so fast for bigger tires. Hitch rack works when needed for me.

It's a hardtop, I'd go for bigger tires and park it outside.

That questionable of a neighborhood, Zack?

No, not at all. It just seems silly to have a parking space and not use it.

Understandable. I presume you pay a little extra in your rent to cover the parking spot... no way to get out of it? It could mean more tire money.

Yeah, I'm going to look into that. The other benefit of a parking space is that it doubles as a small storage area.

To put anything on it I have to do a bit of climbing.

Assuming it's accessible to others -- If you have an anchor point, then you may able to use it for storage or to keep some camping/hiking/off-roading gear.

And this is why you work abroad and I don't!

Did you get the Gobi yet? Can't wait to see it on your rig.

Theoretically, if I did remove the rack, what are my options for the holes? Just plug 'em up with bolts?

You could get little plastic snap-in caps from home depot and seal them with RTV. I did the same with the holes in my doors when I removed the locks.

Ram offers a few colors definitely in this vein:

- Case Construction Yellow
- Case International Harvester Red
- Case Power Tan
- Detonator Yellow
- Hills Green (John Deere by any other name)
- National Fire Safety Lime Yellow (yes, high viz, in other words)
- Omaha Orange
- Schoolbus Yellow

They don't offer Forest Service green, though…

Got it at Barbera's Autoland in Philly for 25,000. It's got the dual tops, blue tooth, side steps, Sirius radio for a year, 17" rims which I removed for aftermarket rims.

Yeah... but you vacation abroad. I don't even vacation.

I get back from Madrid on Friday night, the rack is going on Saturday afternoon.

Can't wait to see pics of it. I would like to do a cross country trip in the jeep. If I do I'll be picking up a nice rack for it.

I'll most certainly post a few photos here.

Mrs. Boxer, her daughter, and I will be heading into the Rockies on the 23rd of November to cut down a Christmas tree (not quite going full-Griswold). Then we are doing a cross-country trek from Denver to Columbus (and back) for the Christmas holiday.

I ordered the normal AEV bumper, IPF light kit and associated little parts. Swapping out the "hoopless" euro AEV bumper that came on the MW3 as I was able to sell it.

Next up will be 35's and a lift. I'd like to do a set of AEV wheels but the black Rubi wheels look great. Hard to justify spending $$$$ on replacing them when the entire set isn't worth much to swap out.

I was able to sell my Moabs (without tires) for $550. I imagine you can get a grand for your MW3 Rubi wheels with tires. That'll pretty much cover the cost of Savagres.

What lifts are you considering?

guy posted this on the JK forum....I love this combo. The color, the wheels....perfect. I dig the new wheel design (but I'm apparently in the minority).
