im really digging this idea. i just put 32s on 15x8 soft 8s on mine with stock suspension b/c i got them cheap. i trimmed my flares and they were fine for a bit on road but as expected they rub like crazy offroad. definitly looking into doing this sooner rather than later

Nicely done! I've been looking at doing something a lot like that. How did you figure out the spring combination without trial and error? You did well.

92 XJ, 4.0 NP231 - Stock to rebuild for my daughter, 235x75R15s
95 YJ, 2.5 NP231- 1" shackle, 4.0 tb, 19lbs injectors, e-fan, 31x10.5R15 Treadwright tires.
93 ZJ, 4.0 w/AW4 NP231 - 2" BB, 1 inch spring lift, 31x10.5R15 Cooper AT3 tires.

In GOD we trust. It's a Jesus thing.

my front bumper/ winch weigh about 250lbs,my jeep/truck was hitting the bump stops constantly as i drive up & down my driveway. I have had the 98 chevy sitting as a doner truck for another chevy for a while. I figured i would give it a shot.I pulled the springs from the doner seperated the leaf packs andflipped the springs up side down and stepped in the middle to find out how stiff they were compaired to stock. Then i just stuck them in.
