    No through the trip computer. But Pro-Cal for the 33's and then the 35's; based upon the better noise and general performance I thought it was down to less rolling resistance / weight.

    I've got a smittybilt "defender" rack, and those plates are where it fixes to the roof at the back. I'm just too lazy to ake them off!

    Been running about in the jeep today, they genuinely are a revelation on the road, great wet grip, minimal noise and the mpg improved. In terms of looks, I preferred the open country look, but they're growing on me

    Thanks. Got the number plate when I got it - quite subtle I thought!

    Alex finished up on the Jeep today (few minor bits still on order). Gone for JKS 2.5" lift, 35x12.5x17 BFG KM3, Sprint-Booster, Rigid Task light, Terraflex Tyre carrier. The rugged ridge locking wheel nuts had been tightened up too much by the local tyre place, resulting in Alex and his guys having to engineer a solution (through welding a nut on to each one) to remove them. Not sure anyone else would have stuck at it, another good reference point for good customer service! Amazed by the difference in the tyres from my 33" cooper STT's (not pro). My mpg went up and the noise was almost un-noticeable - great for a mud tyre! Some snaps below:
  6. Work nr Wokingham, so I'd be up for it.

    X3's don't do a 35 x 12.5 x 17 unfortunately - look like a good tyre. The R7's get some shocking reviews..

    Hi from a newbie.

    I've got the CRD and had it chipped. It goes well, sounds like a tractor and the same MPG as the petrol - 3.6 all the way!

    They're just that bit smaller all round; the options on 315 only really add the coopers; which I currently have the older versions of. Leaning towards the KM3 - they get good reviews and a bit lighter.

    So having got the head unit sorted it's time to do the well travelled route on lift, tyres, etc. Pretty much what I've decided (but grateful for any advice - pro or con) on is as follows: JKS 2.5" lift, fox shocks Teraflex tyre carrier mopar hard rock rear bumper Fox performance steering stabiliser 35 x 12.50 x 17 MT's - not much available; so its between Maxxis 764 and BFG KM3 AEV steering guard (£100 off at nene - think its a fire sale) Also going to get under-seal (Dinitrol) before having the work done; Pro-Tect services in my village have an amazing set-up; saw it this afternoon; lots of classic porsches and rally cars getting done (and a waiting list until mid November).

    Fen, the infill panels don't look that bad in the flesh - the plastic is quite a good match. It's not flush; which unless someone brings out a bigger head unit; I doubt any will be. I'm looking at either importing it myself or asking the supplier and fitter of my overall build (suspension, etc) to add it on and pay the management costs. I just prefer it to AEV, rugged ridge, ARB, etc and cost wise its about on a par. Think you can use AEV tyre carrier with it too?

    Thanks for the advice on bumper - going to change that next month hopefully for hard rock mopar, so probably re-locate then. also Mic is not within the enclose on the front pillar, but stuck on - have you managed to get it in that space? Pictures:

    Got the unit installed yesterday, spent some time fiddling about trying to get phone and stuff to work this morning. First thoughts: - it sounds good, but very different from stock FCA / Alpine system; lots more controls on EQ - It looks really cool; particularly with phone (android) mirroring. I hadn't really realized that the screen effectively becomes your phone for apps and stuff. - DAB+ (with splitter to my stubby aerial) is brilliant in quality and clarity. Not worked out whether I can have mirroring and DAB at the same time. - Rear reversing camera positioning isn't great at the moment, due to the spare tyre, removable roof, etc - how has everyone else solved this? - Have lost the central cubby USB, with a new one in glove compartment Will send some piccies once I have the chance..
