pain

Sorry to hear about the wrist (s). I've been playing with R&L ACL, MCL & LCL in both knees. The old joke of football injurys hits home asap when its real. And I never even got 2 NCAA. I love steroids. I'll take any reduction in pain I can get! I sleep w/20 lb of ice on the knees every night, after 30 years.

I roasted a rotor today. My front caliper decided to lock up on the way home! Looks like a brake job tomorrow after work.

I see something oddly screw shaped in your LF tire. Maybe a screw made out of stone?

I wonder if it's possibly the motor that died out or the board soldering.
Ya when i get a my headliner redone in summer im gonna fix it but dont want to have to pull it down twice you know

Started looking at tires. Looking to step up to a 245/75r16 for the time being until I can afford to lift it the way I want to and put it on 33's. Leaning towards tread wrights at this point just because they're cheap, anyone have any suggestions on a tire in that size?

I do not know about the "Tread Wrights", but I am/ have been looking at thr General AT2 265x70x16 for my "Niner" wheels with my 2" BB for beach duty. Do you have a link or info on the "Tread Wrights".

Here is their website, they just do re treads. I'm really just leaning towards those because I'm being cheap and hope to be able to lift the jeep in the next 6 months or so and dont wanna break the bank on tires im not gonna keep for long but my bad vc has destroyed my tires and i'm going to need some new shoes asap.

It is my understanding that a worn VC will wear the front tires rapidly. Side to side wear may be a different issue.

If you can feel binding when doing tight turns in parking lots or u can hear your tires chirp a bit while turning or your tires are cupping or all 3 its a safe bet your vc is on its way out. How many miles on your jeep? The vc usually starts to crap out around 120-150k miles.
