Just put on new rubber. Got a set of Mickey Thompson XMT's. They are a much better ride than my Dick Cepek Crushers. Just need to figure out what's next.

Those Riddler diff covers look like you could shoot them with a 44 and it wouldn't hurt them.

Yeah, with a 5.13 and 37's the Yukons have been horrible. The first set were bad right out of the box and replaced in 2 days. The second set, lasted about 6 weeks. The shop that does them, I have been dealing with since my TJ days. He has been in business about 18 years, and does nothing but Jeep work. It was the first time he went with Yukons, and as he said...."Not a chance of it happening again"

The first set they replaced, the second set he had to eat out of pocket. They stated "Customer did not do proper break in" which is complete crap. 275 PLus miles not going over 50 MPH

Installed the Racor hoist, took the top off and then took the pup for a ride.

I do... it works really well. The only thing I dont like and will fix (minor fix) is that the bolt ends are on the bottom and are long. If you have a angle grinder you can cut them down, otherwise you will want to put some kind of cover on them. I think they are the right size that the caps for the tire nipples will fit on them (at least the small J bolts). The big bolts I will have to figure something else out for.

Other than that... it installs somewhat easy as long as your rafters are the right distance. Id suggest an extra set of hands, but it can be done with just yourself. The manual lifting isnt bad and just takes a little bit, but can be used with a drill instead to make it powered. Gives tons of storage for your freedom tops or anything else as well.
