"Flat/Nasty" hada pic so I could see ROCK
beadlock sense;
"Seymoure" - no pic (only closed 2 mo a yr!) but now I get the idea for the beadlock/air down. More fun!
Love that 417/870 Area Code!

Correct, these are not double beadlocks and or do not have a internal insert.

I have 16 bolt beadlocks and 35's on it now, but the boggers are about shot.

So I double upgraded.

Double beadlocks are out there, but pretty uncommon.

The thought is that the main way you lose a bead is by putting too much torque to the tire and spinning the rim in the tire. A single beadlock is plenty to address that.

The second most common way to lose a bead is to push the tire sideways. The outside front tire gets that worst in a turn and the downhill side tires get it worst on a side-hill (weight transfer is away from the other side in both cases). And it's only the outside bead you're going to lose in either case.

I will probably ditch the 35" spare for better out the back viewing anyway. The tool boxes are staying for sure. I would have to work over the back half of the roll bar to get a 38.5 spare fit in between the down bars.

Shortening up the rocker panels, adding rock sliders and working over how the the roll cage is tied to the frame better, is next on the list.

Shortening up the rocker panels,

"...Shortening up the rocker panels,…"
'Shoring' up - means strengthening

'Shortening' up - means reducing the over all wheel base?

No comprende`. These lill bobtails need lengthening if U ask me (hwy driving, towing, on board hauling).

Nope, it's cutting the bottom off the rocker (shortening the height, not the length) and then replacing it with some tubing. Gives more clearance for rocks, bets rid of a (usually) rusty piece of sheet metal and replaces it with something that can take it's knocks as a rock slider.
