Oh, right you wanna use stock rims. You should be okay in that case. I have Soft 8s which are a little backspaced, so that's why I had some rub.

I say go for it, and if it rubs just pull your bumper off, lol.
Bumper cover already gone and a 2" BB is sitting in the box waiting for me to afford shocks and springs.

if you want stock rims on 31's get wheel spacers.

In any matter, they are all getting replaced when I pull the engine out and put it into my YJ.



You gain no HP by removing or adding weight. You do increase/decrease power/weight though.

Discovered my axle is bent...
I didn't know you can swap engines in The Peoples Republic , I thought big gas guzzlers are frowned upon

We can do whatever the hell we want here. Until it's time for smog.

But I have a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy....

And put the wrong size spare back on cause I'm tired of reinflating the back tire every three days.

I gassed mine up as well. Then I drove it to work, drove it home from work, parked it in its normal spot in my driveway, and assessed the damage after the storm cleared last night. Apparently, the driver side got hit by a branch during a microburst. I didn't see any damage. One of my neighbor's trees landed within inches of the side of my house too. That would have sucked.

Your going to get pre-runner rake with those if you don't do similar to the back. And wear out stock shocks faster.
