As far as the tires, I guess we'll have spare tires to share cuz I'm getting a set.
Are you going with 32"?

Ya, my *** end is raked up enuf to fit them. All I need is about an inch more in the front and I should be sitting about like your TJ. That'd put me at 4" in the front and 4.5" in the rear.

I'd prefer coils, but will have limited money due to the cost of the tires. Plus I'd be replacing my sway links again. The ones I have are barely long enuf as it is. Probably discos... and the list goes on.

If you have time wait until cyber Monday I got a huge discount on all my stuff! I got the tires and rims from jeep4x4center.com but any other site should have good deals that day. I think my tires and rims came to 1,500 which I did not think was bad.

I'd be keeping the rims I have. All 5 of them. That's where package deals don't work for me. I spoil myself, gotta have a matching spare.

That's the benefit of sticking with the same tire when you need a new set. Pick the best of your old ones for a spare. I'd give you $50 for the next best since I'll have the same size and tire

Ya, I fell in love with the side biters on your MTR's, and I've got the growing fever. I want my rig to start looking a little meaner.

I love the mean look. Thats what I am going for as you can see. I think your rig looks mean how it sits with the MTRs it will kick it up a bit.

I do like the clearance I've got with my lift height and the 31's. I hope 32's won't make it look over-stuffed. Then again, it will give me a bit of a LCOG look. A little more flare trimming will be in order.

Not even dude.
I'm low. Ibj is low. Sfr is low. That'd be standard.

I think we've all got a different standard of what we consider wheeling. Even with all the clearance I've got, I've forced the sheetmetal through the lip on all four flares. My daily drive incorporates quite a bit of flexing and yet I don't consider it wheeling. Thank you Montana

I made my own adjustable quick dicos for $30. Don't know if it'd be possible with an xj though.

It is possible, but if any welding is involved I'd be outsourcing that part. I can't weld due to my seizures. Flashing light and strobes have never put me into a seizure, but it gives me a tremendous headache. I can't even watch my boy play Xbox cuz the unnatural light changes do the same thing to me. And the last thing I'd need is to be wrong with an electrode in my hand.
I'm ok with buying some to avoid the chance.
So, to answer before the question arises, how do I have a drivers license if I have seizures? I am very happy to say its been 7.5 years since my last seizure that lasted 28 minutes. I damn near lost my life that day.
