I heard it was only good for 25 at the rear wheels, but I need spares and for the same price as a Jeep key, I figure it couldn't hurt.

Took a photo of my jeep, and Drifted for over 500 miles 2 weekends ago in the snow we had! Such a blast helping people who got stuck, and drifting away!

Finally decided to get an Addco rear sway bar and energy suspension greasable bushings. I can already tell by the weight that it's much more substantial than the stock bar. I don't know why I waited so long, the front was a great improvement. Thanks Kolak!

All that bald-*** street tire will see anyway. I'm not wheeling it on bald street tires, that'd be dumb. The tires I'm looking at are a set of Kumho KL78 A/Ts, and I'm planning a trip to Colorado this summer for some tougher wheeling than Texas typically offers. (As well as a number of trips to the local spots)

I don't know what your deal is, Polka, but I think you ought to stop talking out your ***.

Put your diaper back on you big baby.

When you get those tires, get all the same size this time lol. That way you won't have to "deflate one to match" and also run the risk of a blowout because it's old, bald, under inflated, and overheating.

Implying I've had this Jeep long enough to put mismatched used tires on it.

Don't speak. It makes you look as dumb as you are.

You are still driving it around like that with the front shaft in aren't you? Or were you smart enough to take it out? Either way driving on bald under inflated tires causes blowouts.

That's something I'd consider attempting to do on my own I think, as long as a tune or any other "supporting" mods aren't really necessary. How long did it take you?

The longer you take the better it looks First time it took me a full 24 hours over two days. You don't need a tune.


A hole saw and a vice is a good way to go. I used a brake honer and then sanded. Looks great and it's free! I didn't notice anything big but the throttle response was much better.
