How much are looking to spend? My new wheels have 3.5" but they cost a little bit of $$$.

Don't know. Once I quit drooling over beadlocks I started looking at cheaper wheels again.

37s are the new 35s.

I'll just let that sink in...

On a maintenance related question, anyone ever had a coolant leak from a bad water pump seal on the 4.0? That a common problem or what? Noticed a larger than usual area of wetness under the Jeep today and followed it back to the bottom of the water pump. Shouldn't be to hard of a fix. Might as well put a new belt on it while I'm in there.

Are you sure its coming from the seal and not the weep hole? A leaking water pump is a sign its gonna go. And you don't wanna be stuck outside of town when I does cause it sucks(I been there). If your gonna redo the seal might as well buy a new one(80 I think) and a new thermostat and some zerex gold antifreeze and redo the entire system if you can swing it. Its about to get hot in the south and you want your cooling system to be in top shape.

I didn't notice where it was coming from. I just looked at it real quick and noticed it was wet underneath the water pump. But hell, if they are only $80 I'll just go ahead and replace it. Shouldn't be to hard.

Nah not hard at all.me and a buddy did mine in the pouring rain in the dark in a 2hrs. Hardest part is taking the fan shroud out. I got all my stuff from napa. That's the only place I could find zerex gold(what jeep calls for don't use the red or green stuff if your gonna do it might as well do it right)

Good to know. Looks like I'll be getting my stuff from RockAuto since they always seem to have the best prices. $35 for a new water pump. RockAuto ftw.

Got plates due in a month and a half and I've wanted to get a vanity plate. Just trying to get some ideas right now. So far all the ones I've put in to the system are already taken. Well, IMIN4LO and IMN4LO isn't taken but people have done that before.

The only one I've come up with so far is 4OHFURY.

Any other ideas?
