Run your hand across the top of the tire and all the lugs should be at the same height. You may be able to get some tires off of them or more off of the price if they are badly chopped. As soon as you rotate them the tread blocks that are high will wear down to where the others are and you will lose a considerable amount of tread pretty fast. Sorry to inform you of this but you should know...still I really like you new rig
Nah... it is just the outside tread. It is hard to explain. I can get pics after we pick it up today.

Hard to tell from this pic, but you might be able to see something.

Yeah, it is actually a different lug nut then what is supposed to be on there. I picked it up today, but I will update later. MY computer is acting all messed up.

I am going to try and do this before my computer fails on me again.,

Well, we picked up the Jeep today. It was pretty stiff in the tires, but I dropped pressure before we left. It rode like a dream. They were able to get all of the stink out. We now have the hard and soft top, both with tinted windows. I found out the passenger door does have the pin, and the driver's one might just be behind the dash. I will check that out later.

I do get to share the little extra secret that the Jeep has. It has a remote starter (that I probably won't use much).

Anyways, the headlights and fogs definitely need to be aligned, they are way out of wack. The mud guards will probably go, as will the chrome sway bar cover. The headlight guards are black, but they need a refresh, so we will probably paint them semi-gloss black. Same thing with the plastic grill inserts.

Everything seems to work, and the tranny is still . I will start an almost build thread when we get started.

Yeah, I noticed that today. I will get some up tonight (or maybe even a new thread). The dealership took the Jeep off the website, hence why they are gone. Parents are on their way home now, so after that, I will climb under there and do some work. I guess that means I need to take before pics too
