Last time I drove mine? Well I had it on a small trail riight before I deployed June 2011. Then I drove it on the road when I got back last March. I was going to get it inspected, but my steering was too loose and there was a popping somewhwere in the front end. The steering issue was just worn out TRE's, but I said screw it and decided to just upgrade my axles. So, it's been a hell of a long time.

That is exactly what my steering does. One of the noises comes from the track bar, the other I think I have rooted out as being the junction of the tie rod and drag link hitting the passenger side sway bar disco. The wishy washy feel, haven't figured that out. I'm guessing cheap stock parts a DIY alignment and bad track bar VS drag link angles.

It's a late 80so 220k aw4 and a 4.0 motor. Unfortunately I think it has their d35 rear but I plan on wheeling it around my house and generally beating the **** out of it till I get a 60 70 combo for it. Cut the fenders and find some bigger tires are the first plan. It has a 3 inch lift dunno the brand and quick discos on it right now... oh and it's burgundy. My favorite car color.

for you 1000 tires and wheels, I don't really wanna split it up but since you're a friend I'd do 800 for just tires. was asking 1200 OBO for both. the 33"spare is included in that also and that will have a wheel either way.

I got 1 rim for 16 dollars. That price is for 4 duratracs plus a Gillette Kodiak AT with a rim as a trail spare. They are Brand new tires essentially I can't really let them go for less...

Like I said I don't want to split the tires and rims but if I get the tires sold then I'll do the rims for like 180. they were 260 new with the center caps and lugs. You can't use the lugs with the center caps though so you'll have to buy new ones from napa. they are a dollar a piece.

Well you can but you would need a crowfoot wrench to tighten them. The problem is I got lugs that are 1 inch but I need 3/4 inch lugs to fit a socket or tire iron between the lugs and the center cap. It pissed me off that these are the only 1x20 lugs with a 45 degree conical seat that summit racing had.
