Those seats just look uncomfortable and unsafe to be driving in, unless they are just for looks at a stop light hahahahaha!

Do you have a drop hitch on it or is it just a standard one?

uhh i believe its 2 or 3 in. drop. nothing crazy. its just a high trailer. its a great little trailer tho! thing is 20 years old. tows awesome. and looks awesome haha we usually redo it every 5 years or so to keep it nice.

thinking of just getting 33x12.5 and putting them on the Ravines? i know the BS is going to be an issue. anyone got a 33x12.5 on a stock wheel?? how bad do they rub??? that would probably be temp until i get more coin for wheels.

You should deffently do that to get rid of the ford rims. I don't know anout rubing but I would just find a set of spacers for them.

Why not get 33x10.5 tires if you're worried about rubbing? They will probably still rub but not as much. Not to mention tall and skinny is better anyway

i not to fond of spacers. and for the price i can just get steelies.

as for tall and skinny. i like a wider tire. makes the jeep look better plus i think in mud it seems to be better even though everyone says a thinner tire is better. to each their own.

X2, I love skinny tires and 33x10.50 would look good IMO.

I agree with the wider tires. My dads wrangler has wide tires and kinda flots and diggs in the mud
