they are 8" wide but alot of backspacing haha. kind of thinking about keeping the stock snowflakes and doing a 31.5" tire (265/75) with spacers..but i dont know. atleast i have time to think about it haha.

i like the 15" wheels i got but with how little backspacing they have, im thinking it will make the jeep look like a little to "mexicano" with the tires sticking out.

RE 4.5" lift springs came in the mail! They are a lot thicker than I was expecting.

I just can't decide if I should buy all the other stuff so I can lift my baby or just save a couple more months for a '91 Foxbody 5.0 lx hatch.

Help? haha

My parents used to have an 01 GT vert, I love the the 4.6 modular motors but could only afford the insurance on an old pushrod fox. lol

It's a tough decision for me but I think i'll probably save up for the car and if it gets sold before I have the money then I will just buy a bunch of Jeep parts.

Did the complete rear brake job. New calipers, rotors, drum brake pads and the disc brake pads. I love having an emergency brake again. Wish I would've had time to drain rear diff. Maybe tomorrow...

went exploring down by the river bottoms today. we use to go wheeling down there all the time and the snow has all been melting plus last year this all flooded and never really went back down so its much worse now.

kind of weird, in these pics, the river is around 40ft closer to the road than usual. almost got stuck too..need to get the lift in so i can get new tires haha..

Replaced my driver front wheel bearing last night. Wow, had no idea that the road noise I had been putting up with was a bad wheel bearing. Runs so much quieter now. I thought it was tire noise I was hearing, and so did not really think something was wrong, until I started hearing a crunching noise when rolling slow. Jacked up both sides, and check for wheel play. Pass side was nice and tight. The driver front had noticable play, so off to napa for a $115 hub assembly. Took only about 30 min to replace, easy job.
