Three hundo (300) Ebay for 5 rims and tires. Had to drive down south and get them and the adapters are about $140ish.

"project 1"... i was considering either the TJ Rubicon rims or the JK rims like you have.... do you know the rim specs? 17", how wide, Backspace?

I have pretty much settled on getting the RE 3.5 lift in a few weeks, and would like to figure out a few more things about wheel spacers etc. With those tires, how close are they to rubbing? you're happy with 1.25" adapters? That lift looks like more than 3.5"... did you get an extra inch out of that kit?

Nice XJ...

Since it is your DD and all, I assume you expect highway drives...

What are you planning for steering? Some set-ups aren't so highway friendly...

Hey man Thanks!

Right now with the 255/75/r17 and the spacer, I have no rub at all with the RE 3.5. When these tires wear out I'm going to go larger tires and more lift. I like them so, good for now. I wanted to go with the 16’s and that really is a great way to go, I just found a perfect deal on these so I went with them. Not sure on the back spacing but I posted a picture, they sit flush with the fender.

I have not really had any steering problems yet, and no plans at this time really. I think next is disc brakes and lockers.

Since it has street tires, not mt’s, it rides really awesome on the road but off road is kind of bad.

I don’t dive the jeep too fast either. I usually dive like 65 on the highway.

Love the jeep, and jk wheels... Plan on doing the RE 3.5 lift down the road, and now will have to look into the JK wheels and tires... Silver on Silver should look pretty good!

OK Solerxj!! Where were you when I was trying to drill that bolt out for 6 hours!!!!

I’ll be adding those to the collection for sure!!

Well the good news is I did get that demon stud drilled out, and the t-case drop on. I hate having to drop the t-case but for now that’s what I’m going to do.

It did fix my problem though.
