I have 265/75/r16 tires. Going to get a 2in bb an mount them on my factory limited rims. How bad would I need wheel spacers? I know I need them but won't have the money right away.

Had to cut off a bolt on a tie rod clamp on my brand new crown steering setup because it was stripped before I put it on and didn't even realize it so it got stuck.

And it was my buddies birthday and he turned 19 but we thought sweet 16 and pink balloons and streamer would be hilarious.

Replaced the brake shoes. My parking brake is still useless. Any ideas boys?

Bought this for her, too. Those wheels left me $150 under budget. Just made that up.


As for the lift, I'm gonna wait until the wheel adapters come in, and see how much it needs to be trimmed at various levels of lift.

Possibly the cable needs to be adjusted

If you have drums it could be the self adjuster kit. Mine seized up and cause that issue

Drums don't come on later year ZJ's. My 95 didn't even have drums. I would try adjusting the cable.

So I got my lighted toggle switches in the mail last week. Hadn't had time to mess with them. They are the little button style but still a rocket switch. Tonight I took them all to a 9v battery to make sure they light up. They all do but I don't really know how I like them. They seem to hard to turn on/off. I'm sure I can deal with it but I might get 5 of the lighted toggle switches with and actual post as the switch. We will see.

It's harder to accidentally bump a rocker switch and leave it on...

Well, since I don't have access to the tool I need, I sat & looked at it to figure out how I'm going to get those PITA upper control arm bushings out of the front axle... Then looked at it again wondering how I'll get the new ones in

E-breaks are drums located on the back inside of the disk break rotor.
Pull the rotor to get to the e-breaks, mine looked rather bad and I replaced them.
