Nice rig man... very clean.

You need a Detours Rear Bumper Tire Carrier man, would look sweet on that truck.

Looks good man, one question about your speakers. What size are you running in the rear sound bar and what did you have to do to hook them up? My old TJ their was just a wire from the speaker and a metal tab at the end that you popped into another tab on the sound bar. Did you have to do any splicing?

Yeah I'd like to get the Tailbone, but due to cash shortages, the tire will remain in the cargo area for now.

I am very happy with the lift so far. I got rid of all vibes by just using the t-case drop, so I never had to mess around with a SYE. It rides slightly stiffer than stock, and still corners well. I don't push it, though.

They are 5.25" speakers and they were a direct replacement. Crutchfield.com will hook you up with decent prices and the best service ever. They gave me the wiring harness adapter, so they plugged right into the stock wires. It took maybe 1 minute each to put them in.

How do you like your Treadwrights? And I used to live in San Jose; those pics of Yosemite are beautiful.

Nice man, it looks great. I like the look of Moab rims on an XJ.

ask them to balance with the weights only on the inside or do a clip/tape balance.

will look alot nicer and still balance.

but its a pain in the *** to do which is why i just did a dual clip balance and painted the outers

nice lookin rig btw

Thanks, I do like them, but I sometimes wish I had the mt/g's.

My tread is weird though, and it's wearing way faster than my dad's real bfg's. I'm fine with it, Ima wear them out, then go 33.
