What are you going to modify first on your new 392?

I believe the stock offset is +12 not -12. With the Dirty Life 4.53 BS and the -12 offset you will still get some rubbing on the inner fender liners with no lift.
 
Zoom on in. The two sides have different part numbers. The badges have alignment pins on the back that are of different distances, left side / right side. If you're placing these badges anywhere besides on the hood, as there's drilled alignment holes on the hood, then you'll be cutting off the pins anyways. I say this because I ordered 2 badges, left & right side. One badge was on back order for months. I could have just ordered 2 left side badges and received the complete order more promptly.

Those SRT wheels bolt right up? No BS or offset issues? Im looking for a set with street tires .. just for a night or 2 at the local dragstrip lol

Yes, they bolt up perfect. The offset is great, the wheels stay within/under the fender as originally engineered (My tread sticks out maybe an inch). And with this Jeep having this much power I definitely would not want my wheels sticking out ~4 inches beyond the fender. I've done my time with the 'Aggressive' look/tires sticking out look, and the handling is severely hampered with that set-up, yanking left & right when taking off... but even more so when braking (especially hard braking). Not to mention eating up wheel bearings. Also, the wheel hub rings center up perfect, basically snapping in, maintaining support as OEM intended. In other words the lugs are not what is centering the wheel up.
 
And that’s what I did first...Toyo MT 37x13.5x20 on bronze Fuel Rebels. Tazer Mini, teraflex HD Carrier. Fox Stabilizer bar sitting in the Garage next to the Warn winch. I’m bleeding money it seems. My wife said it looked wimpy before the wheels, not anymore tho. A before and a couple after pics.
Very clean. How dark did you go with the tint?
 
I matched the rear tint….20% I think. A little darker than legal in Texas but it’s never been an issue for me…I take my doors off to get it inspected.
Danggg. One of those pics they look darkkkk. Very nice and smart move removing the doors
 
This is helpful, thanks for the details. Western dealers will not install the plow on the 392 because they said the front axle load (3100lb) is over capacity with the heavier motor. I found a private shop that will install though. Placed the order for my 392 yesterday

@Leslumpy , did you ever get your plow mounted?
 
I used the bullerpoint mount also but ordered from 3 different companies to get my mount done on a ball
Got Bulletpoint mount too. Where did you find the ball for dash mounting point? I like that better.

@BenLandry I'm debating between the Bulletpoint dash mount and grabbar ball mount like what you did. I like the clean look of the dash without the mount sitting there. How do you like the grabbar mount? Any safety or user experience concerns while driving?

Another reason I'm leaning towards the grabbar mount is my wife can put her phone there too when I don't use mine.

It’s out of the way for everybody. I CarPlay most of the time so I’m not really needing to look at it. Not a safety problem for me. I have the 3.5 inch arm from Offroam for 20mm ball and cradle from BulletPoint.
 
Finished with the DV8 hood lightbar and mounting kit, along with the four Rigid cube lights using the Arctic Industries mounts. You can never have too much light. 😁

@Leslumpy , did you ever get your plow mounted?
Yes, after trying to reuse the fisher mount but it had too much flex, I installed a 2” front receiver and was going to drop 4.5k on a new one from Meyer. After a bit of reflection, cut the fisher and welded it to a an old hitch and worked out better than the original fisher mount that was on the JK

Thanks for sharing! I’m going from a JK to a 392 as well. Ordered a new frame mount for the Western Plow, that’s for a standard JL Rubicon. Hoping it fits without much modification.

I didn’t like that the western mount hung way down and the front skid plate gets removed. If you still have the old western, convert it, loose the lights and 90% of the electrical harness!

I like that hitch mount setup.
I end up removing the western mount and reinstalling the skid for non-winter months. Great idea on ditching the lights! Certainly not needed for driveway only use.

Actually, the plow lights were directly in front of the headlights…. The only wires needed are the 4 pin and power plug, just used the auxiliary ignition to feed the joystick. Not her the skid around the front receiver hitch

Looks awesome and you can use that hitch for recovery as well. Appreciate the info!
 
Not the first mod, but took some of yours advice and ordered the Bulletpoint Mounting System. Installed it over the weekend and am really pleased with it.
