threw on the 31s with stock suspension..rubbed on the front bumper when turning on the underside lip. trimmed it and doesnt even look like i did. doesnt rub now but not taking any chances. BB is going in asap.
lookin sharp..but you mounted the tires wrong - white letters OUT..
Looks great! I loled when I saw the truck in the background. It's tryin to be a Jeep!
Diff parts from drivetrain were "delivered", but for some reason it's set as signature required so Dad'll swing by on the way to work and get em'.
Dad got tranny parts to our transmission guy and he's gonna get stuff ordered/rebuilt. Cross your fingers we'll have that stuff back by Friday. (unlikely, but a guy can dream, right?)
haha thanks man and yeah thats my bosses truck. back when i had my xj, i always used to park infront of the store on the snow banks close to straight up and down. customers loved it but my VP did not. i got yelled at and hadnt parked like that since. but i saw my boss parked on the snow bank since theres only like 3ft of parking space since we have so much snow so i had to park like that to show him up haha.
and on topic, i was driving mine to school today, it is slower with the 31s but not to bad. unlike my old 225/65/16s, i can do 1500rpm at 65mph where as with the old baby tires, it was cranking 2300rpm at 65. yay better mpgs
anyways, i was driving down a 4 lane road when i glanced 2 my left a little and saw a tire rolling my way flying across the intersection and a van dragging on its rotor. i slammed my brakes and the tire just barely missed me. it flew up and over a snow bank and landed on a parked cars hood and went through the windshield. luckily nobody was in the car. i would have stopped but i was late for school and had a test 1st class so i kept going. others stopped though. it was crazy haha.

[QUOTE=bddisi;6376248]Glad you are ok. If you were a cat, you would be down to 8.:D[/QUOTE]
Put on a new set of wild country tires (black side out), just slightly larger than stock. Thisis my 4th Jeep and 1st GC or ZJ and although I like it more than the others, I decided against spending $1K+ on tires and a lift kit. I live in the low country of SC and although we have plenty of mud, it's really flat, so there's plenty of fun to be had in a fairly stock Jeep. Replaced the rear speakers that someone had blown listening to Rap (crap). The evidence had been left in the CD player when I bought the ZJ. I replaced the lifters on the rear gate and it only dropped on my head once, ouch! There is a Torx socket needed but a 1/4 sae socket will work if you keep preasure on it. By the way, I bought the rear speakers at WalMart for $40.00 (Pioneer). You have to drill four new mounting holes, but a single replacement spearker at the dealer was $60.00.
