Finished swapping in the Denso fuel pump today. Had to miss class, but so stoked to have a working Jeep.

Took my niner down the track for a free pass...15.2@90mph. Had to launch easy since the transfer case linkage is loose and likes to fall off, but I'm thinking she can break 14's if I breaktorque and get a nice launch. Amazing how a 14 year old SUV can still pull a time like that, in my opinion. There was a Ford Lightning SVT that ran 14.9, and those are putting out considerably more hp then the 5.9.

Picked up some 31x10.5 BFG AT's on rims and installed them tonight!!! A lot better than the 235/75R15s I had before that were just too small!

Here's probably the worst picture ever of said tires.



Two things:

1. Any idea on what to do for a slow leak? Seems to be between the tire and rim.

2. Do I need the dust caps?

Your bead may not have set correctly or the rim could be damaged. Either way the tire will probably have to come off. Sucks you lost the duratracs but they look good!

They are cheap, might as well use a new one. Could have also been defective. You chose well as to replace it.

Thanks man.

I'll have to check that out soon I guess!

I loved the Duratracs but no way I could afford another set in a 31''. I had always wanted BFGs but when I went shopping for them, I was told they were discontinued so I settled for the Goodyears.

We'll see how these fair out!

figure out why

it did get up to 220 or so the other day with the air on
