I paid 12 dollars for my soft 8 at crazy rays. What vehicles have 5 by 5.5? I'll grab one for you jet time I go.

Yeah. Can you post some pics of each tire that you have? I don't care about the mud rovers (or whichever pair has the bald one)

and they are for a 15 inch rim right???

Yeah, I can try to remember to get those to you tomorrow. I was torn on what to do. I worked out a deal with a guy in Baltimore on 2 MTZ's with decent tread for $100 total. I was going to pick those up and either run the general grabbers or pick up 2 new MTZ's. Now that you want to buy all these I'm REALLY trying to fight the urge to buy all new tires. 35" MTZ's would be $1k. Well, if I'm already spending $1k that I can't afford on tires then what's another $500, right? For around $1500 I could be rolling on 37" Maxxis Creepy Crawlers.





Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

The smart thing would be to run the general grabbers and used MTZ's. Problem is. . . . I'm not feeling too smart right now.

good sell me your tires

37s would compliment your 4.88s really well haha

and look at me, I spent my money on tires I sorta wanted and now I'm getting new ones. buy what you really want or you'll end up paying more anyways. like me.

Eh, I think I decided what I'm doing. I'll let you know Friday if the grabbers are for sale or not. Too much work for 37's right now. I want to get on the trails soon and going to 37's I will want to comp cut, stretch the wheel base and do a lot more cutting. I'll go cheap 35's for now and then when I'm ready for the next set of upgrades I'll save up and put 37's under it. Maybe I'll be able to afford to have it be a trailer queen by then too. . . Doubt it, but maybe. So, instead of big expensive tires right no I might pick up a cage from EOR and sliding ragtop instead.

Alright so... I got my shackle relocation brackets into the XJ. ride is so much better and quieter now, and it took care of my ghetto sag. Shackle angle is just about perfect and my flex is improved as well.

Here is the brackets pre-instal. I went with the HD offroad because of the 1/4" steel and they allowed me to leave my hitch on.



Heres a pic of the new rear view. I like that you can see the shackles. gives it a more offroady feel.


Shackle angle.


Flex. I could have gone further but the blocks fell over.... that and... tree.




Here is the shackle angle at that amount of flex:

I'm waiting on 1 ton steering from serious offroad, and I'll (hopefully) be getting my track bar sorted out tomorrow. Turns out the Clayton offroad HD track bar bushing is just a Ram 2500 bushing. That **** took a few days of research and looking through every track bar bushing napa sells. Gonna pick one up and get it and head to the hardware store to get some grade 8 **** and HOPEFULLY have my front end sorted out by the end of next week. Then All I gotta get is my two bumpers and skid plates and I'll be done!
