Picking up 4 good year wrangler r/ts in 265/75r16 for the oh so high price of 105$ after I get paid. Looks like ill need to be getting wheel spacers and a 2in bb to fit them.

Used it to tow home my GF's Scion. Ended up being a bad relay on the fuel pump.

I ran them on my Jimmy for a while. They're what came on it when I bought it. They were decent tires. I've had better and I've had worse. They did get todd4198's ZJ through the Badlands in Attica, IN. For $105, you can go wrong.

That's what I was thinking.

So sorry for your loss ... I had to take my "Skyler" for that same ride, two years ago this October. She was also "my copilot" Sleeping on the hood of the ZJ was a favorite spot ...
Be strong my friend, the pain of your loss will take time

Finally got back to working on it. Been my DD for months now. Tried to chase down a grinding noise from the passenger side and lubed the chassis. Picked up Sway Bar Link bushings, brake pads, and Tie Rod end boots to install next weekend. I think the U-joints are original (at nearly 180k) so I'll be doing that too I guess. I'm hoping that's the source of that grind. I also tried to hunt down the source of a PS leak but I've got nothing; just keep checking and refilling for now, same as the ATF. Heh.

Yes there is. Just type in zj 8.8 swap and something will come up. I believe early 90's till late 90's will all work. If yours is disk grab an 8.8 with disks. If its drum then grab a drummed one. Im trying to put a write up together on mine

Spent about 3 hours cleaning the old ZJ. Looks pretty good for 14 years old and 245,000 miles! Used the heat gun on the cladding and it turned out great.
