Finally did a cut and fold on the rear. Tomorrow gonna trim the front pretty good. I wish I had a set of 33s to throw on so I could see how much to trim but I know it's gonna be alot so ill just do alot to start with. Don't have a pic of the finished product but I finished and they look good. Did black paint on the lip. Will take more and better pics tomorrow after I finish the front fenders.

Borrowed a friends spare 33/12.50 to see what it will look like. Here's the wheel just next to the jeep on front and back. Need to trim front but I'm feeling so lazy

Sorry for bad pic but I think they look pretty clean for taking maybe an hour to do both sides

the trim looks good .... yea 33s are nice... look on craigslist I see cheap tires on their all the time. I just scored 5 34" MTR Kevlars for 500 and three of them had never even been mounted .. brand new !! I saw some 33s for 100$ the other day.

So my current problems are a check engine light that I don't notice anything wrong other than the rpms seem a little high. And I f'ed with some radio wiring that resulted in running lights and gauge lights not working. These little things are the things that make me wana go wheel the piss out of my jeep in return for pissing me off

No worries... lol ... but believe me i know how it is not to have your jeep run right ... that's why i have been building my motor so much. but just go get your codes pulled, which is usually free and post your codes back up and it will probably be easy to fix.

Tomorrow I'm gonna work on bypassing my neutral safety switch permanently. I'm going to do all the wires on the connector with jumpers and I'm going to hard wire a switch into the reverse light circuit. Ive never tried to start it In drive or anything so I don't see a need for it. I'm
Tired of not having overdrive or reverse lights. And I'm not going to pay 200 bucks for one and I can't get mine off anyway. Broke it trying to get it off so I just bolted it back down.

shop around some, I'd avoid the bypass hassle if at all possible.
Ebay - cherokee NSS - new < check see if that's the right one, not exactly sure your rig specs.

Wow thanks I would have never found that. I really appreciate it. I need to get the large retaining nut to cuz I muffed mine up trying to use it to pry the switch off. Mine is so stuck on there it's ridiculous
