Found a set 31x10.50x15 with 250 miles on craigslist thursday. I got them for $225.00. They're an off brand made by Cooper, Goodride Telluride's, not what I wanted for tire's but can't beat the price.

swapped dash and seats from a 97 or 98 into my 93, hands killing me, back shot, legs rubbery from kneeling on the floor / driveway for 8 hours, but the end resuly was worth it.

Finished herculining the passenger side body cladding and the rear bumper... just the driver side to go now. Looks good, but I didn't let the rear bumper cure long enough before re-installing it and I got some scratches near the corners of the liftgate where the coating was not completely dry.

Will touch it up tonight.

Finally replaced the u-joint and ABS tone ring on my passenger side front axle, will remove the crummy CV-style AutoZone special and put this one back in this week.

took off and painted the rear louvers, re-clear coated the peeling and chipping front fender. Painted a deep scratch on the tailgate, and repainted the rear wiper arm.

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

I bought it.

I really need to learn about Zjs. I spent all my time learning about my xjs, and my yj when i had it .

Now I have all these new parts, and weird lifts. dont get me wrong, I love my jeep, but damn it shouldnt be rubbing with 31's.


if anyone wants to send me to Zj school, my inbox is open. I'm going to go read the faq a few more times haha.

My front bumper was rubbing with 31s as well.. It took me like 30 seconds with a right angle grinder and it was all fixed
