I'll be working on the baby room this weekend so we should be around most of the weekend except for a jaunt to KC for furniture.

When are you thinking?

250 miles down. 250 more until gear oil change.

Reset the toe, retorqued the suspension/steering. Need to balance the tires better. Probably take care of that this week. Gotta find a shop willing to mess with 37s.

11 mpg on the first tank. Love it!

Dunno yet. I have 5 - 8oz bags in my garage.

There are a few different companies online that sell them.

Only 11 mpg? I'm getting almost 13 mpg.

And I didn't need to balance my tires they run really smooth for no weights. My buddies 38.5 boggers run at 70 mph without weights and its not bad at all.

99 WJ hp44, 3 link, Eaton e locker, 14" foa coilovers in the front. 14 bolt, 4 link, grizzly locker, 12" foa coilovers in the rear. 5.38s and 37s

They aren't bad but @70-75 you can tell they aren't 100% balanced.

And boggers @70... Your and my opinion of comfortable ride must differ.

I didnt see it mentioned anywhere. Does the 231 just sit that high up or did you do something to gain so much ground clearance?

231 is a "smaller" TC than the 247 and 242 so it doesnt hang as low when mounted

Its more work, didn't come stock in the WJ in any form, and unless you need a speed output signal, doesn't give you any major advantage over a 242 swap.

I did it mostly for the speed signal output, but also for the aftermarket support, nicer SYE options, and I didn't need AWD.
