Found a set of 32x11.5x15s on craigslist for cheap. So having a buddy go get them for me on Sunday, then driving down on Tuesday when I have off to get them from him and mount them.

Bye bye 31" AT's, hello 32" MTs.

31's just look too small on a 4.5" lift. haha

Re-checked/reset the rear gear backlash on the crappy d35 and changed the filter and fluid in my transmission. Yesterday I swapped my 249 for a 242, two wheel peel baby!

Got it detailed. It's never been so clean (inside or out) since I've owned it. I've gotten it close before, but never this good.

Comp, I'm more jealous than you know. By god that's sexy.


I didn't do anything to my ZJ today. Tomorrow I may clean the interior out proper and install the new O2 sensors. I wish there was good local 4-wheeling though. That'd be a fun saturday.

I already want 33's lol. But they're currently out of my budget. Getting all four, for $90, so can't complain. So, they'll hold me over till tax return time. lol Unless I can find another killer deal

The tires.

Sadly, not quite. It's got its fair share of little scratches, dings, etc. 15 years and almost 155k miles has definitely worn it a bit. The grille is faded as well and the hood vents are missing their clear coat. It needs some love in other ways too, but nothing too major.

Set up my alignment appointment for tomorrow to get my new tires dialed in and rolling straight. Also bought everything I need to completely drain, flush, and refill my cooling system.

It looks better than mine for sure. Mine is full of dents, scratches, dings, gouges, you name it. Wheeling it really takes it's toll on the body.
