forgot to ask, are you running spacers?

Oh we have them, you just would never know it. I got a buddy on that drives a Cherokee on 40s and a 9inch lift for mudding. Drives it in town all the time. Like I said you wouldn't know we had them...... Like most traffic laws.... Wooo Ohio lol

Sent from my iPhone using JeepForum so it probably looks goofy.

I was running spacers. They are 1.75" Daystars. With the stock coil isolators it's 2". I took them out.

OME 934 vs stock 5.9 coil. The OME it a bit thicker and taller but the 5.9 coil adds 10 hp. Got the front done today. It's sitting at a little over 20.5". About the same as with the spacers.

Sorry to thread jack but I have been looking for this answer with no real answer.

I have a 97 Orvis with the up country springs. I wheel a little but pretty light mostly DD. I just went out and measured. I have 19.25" from front fender to hub center. The 245/75/16's should fit without too many problems? I'm pretty sure it should but not positive. Thanks and again sorry to thread jack, Polka. Libtard states suck!

Hahaha that is a good one. Have not seen that either. May have to get these and de virginize my back window. I have only one Jolly Rodger sticker on there.

You can fit the 245/75 with up country. Just be careful if you disco the front sway bar. You can RTV some hockey pucks to the spring perches so they act as extra bump stop.

No, not on the list. Kind of a hassle although they work well if installed correctly. I had them on my 95 for several years with no issues.

That sucks. Here in WA (One of the most liberal states. Hell, we just legalized gay marriage AND weed) As long as you pass emissions once every 2 years (and even if you don't, you can get a waiver for trying) they don't give a **** what else you have done to your vehicle. Even tabs are cheap as hell here. No excess taxes. Bring in your paperwork, pay a small fee, and walk out with new paperwork. Simple.
