Cant remember honestly. I know the long one was out of a windstar. And one of the other two was out of like a pontiac minivan. Ill look for markings in a little bit. I really like that one too for the switches.

Its stamped gm so its def from the pontiac. Montana was the model i believe. The windstar one is too big as expected but i could cut it down and still might. The other too fit real well, cant make up my mind yet. Heres some pics of it fiber glassed

Good points. And I think 33's would be fine.

It already has horrible gas mileage, but oh well, I'm still thinking about it anyway as well as getting rid of the XJ since the RC is so much cheaper to build.

It's already got Dana 44s under it and 4" suspension lift is only $380 from Rough Country. I could easily throw 37s on it and they'd still seem small. Plus it's more practical for any remotely close wheeling around here. I know I'd miss the XJ too much though. I know I'm gonna give in and end up having both built lol

On the plus side for MPGs a buddy of mine is a diesel mechanic and told me he'd swap a Cummins in it free if I picked one up. Slowly loosing hope of keeping it even remotely stock and I don't even have it yet.

In all reality I could easily run 40s for not much money. 4" suspension and 2" body for under $500 would fit em easy without looking as stupid as that other one lol

And to keep this on topic I broke in the mud virginity on the MTRs today. It must have rained 6" in two hours here this afternoon. My dads company graded about 4 football fields worth of land by my house a couple years ago but the project fell through so now it's just a big semi flat field of clay. Must have had the tires buried a foot the whole time between the clay and water sitting on top of it. I might as well have been driving down the road, they tore threw it like it wasn't even there. I was probably throwing clay and water 30 feet in the air, but yeah lol

They're easily the best tires I've ever had. Especially in the rain. Our employee lot at work floods BAD when it pours. It's downhill from the rest of the lot. When I went out to my Jeep it was still pouring and the water in the lot was over my ankles and I was wearing boots. I floored it through about 2' deep of water thats about 20 yards long by the drain coming out and never broke traction. Looked like I hit a bunch of those water barrels on the interstate.

A 6bt would be awesome in that! I saw one in a 79 bronco it was on 44's and just awesome. One a 4" lift I think. Cut fenders but done right it looked good!

I ordered some parts to get me by until I go long arm on the XJ.

IRO Solid Tierod (To replace my best stock tierod )
Teraflex Adjustable Lowers .to match my Teraflex Adjustable Uppers that I have not installed yet. It was $40.00 more for Adjustable Arms then it would have cost to replace the Bushings on my Fixed Lowers so going ADJ was the smarter thing to do IMO )
