My new to me parts showed up today. JKS ACOS and a set of 4.5" RE Front Coils. All less than 1 year old, all from the same guy, shipped to my door, $129.00!

5 minutes of cleaning and the ACOS will look brand new. Color me stoked. Ordering new RC 4.5" leafs in the next few weeks. Getting re-lifted soon.

Ugh I'm jealous, I've wanted JKS ACOS for the better part of a year now.

Any opinions? Just picture this:


With these:


Ill be keeping the Cragars around either way for when I go to 35s down the road. Just like the Eccos and since they are collecting dust, doesnt hurt to try em out.
I think the eccos would look pretty nice on my XJ.

Its done!

Before

After


Just have to get it aligned after work and shes ready to drive

Found some rust underneath the rear bumper caps but I think we're going to do the cut and fold back there which will get rid of all of it. And then finish off the black trim along the rockers and wheel wells.







Again, does anyone have the slightest guess as to what backspacing these rims are? Or maybe even what brand they are? We just picked them up off craigslist so I have no clue


TIA!

Good start on the XJ grandboost!

Good start on the 2 door XJ grandboost! I can't wait to get mine road worthy!
I hooked up with the guys I got my '00 white 2 door yesterday. They gave me a bunch of stuff including the original 8.25 that needs spider gears, it will get an Aussie locker!

Do it Brandon!! I know I'm old school, but I love the look of aluminum mag style wheels. I have the 15 x 7 Canyon style wheels on my ZJ and have a 15 x 8 set for the XJ.

You definitely have a positive backspacing. I would guess +5.This is my 31x10.5 on a -19bs.

Looks like 15x8 Gambler wheels off a TJ to me. Backspacing should be around 5.25"

That would be +1.25" since the center is 0, but bs'ing isn't set in inches. Aftermarket rims are measured in mm. The common configuration you find most often is +5 to replicate the stock placement of the tire.

I believe you are thinking of offset, which is the distance of the mounting surface from the wheels center, whether it be negative or positive. See that measurement a lot in aftermarket wheels for cars.

Backspacing is the measurment from the mounting surface to the inner edge of the wheel. Just the easiest way to tell how far a wheel will stick out, most all offroad type wheels are referred to in backspacing.


Offset is used too but its really not as user friendly in the offroad world. Those Gambler wheels are original equipment TJ wheels anyway.

@grandboost98 if you wanna know for sure, BS is easy to measure for. Pull a wheel off and take a tape measure from mounting surface to inner edge. Like this: (this is a steelie but same concept)
