Also, I tightened up the latch for the back hatch to stop the clunking. It didn't work.
Check the two rubber bumper things, it'll clunk if those are worn out.

Yeah, that is my next thing to do, they are cracked and don't look like they are doing much! Thanks.

Took my factory horns out since neither worked right half the time and put my air horn in their place. Now people can hear me coming on the trails

These guys sell them $47.28 plus shipping.

Ahh you sir are amazing. $16 shipping to me. However this and a XJ driveshaft are easier and quicker then a axle swap for now.

So you expect to stuff 31"s under it with no lift? Hope your ready to do a lot of trimming. Ahh and just an FYI, a lift has nothing to do with gas mileage. Larger tires are what hurts fuel economy.

I finished up adding a brush guard and winch, then spent the weekend running around in the snow in Santa Fe.

Skinny 31s (215/85R16) should fit fine. There's enough vertical clearance to do it and the narrow tires should be easier to keep out of the LCAs, fenders and bumper cover up front when turning.

OK a 215/85/16 IS 30X8.5 should fit fine. I run a 255/65/16 on stock wheels no lift and no rubbing. A little shorter but quite a bit wider

You'll rub. My buddy had 75r15s and rubbed through dips and a limited turning radius. No more tight u turns.

Decided to completely rebuild my front end instead of just replacing worn parts and hoping for the best with a lift. Might go with a BB afterwards though.
I'm thinking moog balljoints, TRE's, maybe jks discos and crown arms
Open to any suggestions on better brands and where to get them
