Well, they didn't fit, so I trimmed. Big deal? & you had 34x1050's too.

35x12.50 = different ball game.

Josh's were still 35x1250s and he didn't have any issues on his ZJ. I refused to cut metal and luckily my LCAs were out far enough I cleared the body and just had to trim the fascias. 1050s stuffed into the wheel wells great though without needed to pound pinch welds, cutting/folding, or anything like that.

He has a hole different ( nice and expensive ) set up happening under his. It's different then our 4 + 2 BB deal. The flex is a lot different too. His Green ZJ is very nice clean build.

Mine was only a 1" Spacer.

Some day i'll LA a Grand Cherokee of sorts. Could always hunt down my old one or do the red one. But I'm thinking if Fiat fails to deliver a diesel Rubicon, a LA Grand will be my toy in a few years.

Why the **** didnt you just keep it and do that in the first place? sounds like it woulda been way more cost effective than buy, build, sell, buy, sell, buy, build...
i still think i should take you and roger and hit both of your heads together for selling your jeeps.

Nah that not the issue. I just don't put my self in a position to be flat broke like some people do. Terrible idea. Once I get more money saved and set aside, i'll be spending it on something along those lines in 1-3 years depending on the vehicle.

I didn't feel like dumping more money into it to run 33/34s well and stuff. Either I'll LA a V8 Grand Cherokee or get a diesel 4dr Rubicon by the time I graduate.
