If I can get 8x170 bead locks yes but if not just proconp steelies for now until i invest the money into nice wheels I don't do much rocks with mine it's mostly either trails through woods and some sweet little crawling areas my buddy with a yota on 16" travel r coil overs and 38s always gets me into trouble with cuz I have no rocker protection I'm still working on boat sides at some point soon.
Edit on this I totally get where your coming from the list for my jeep is growing and growing haha I have to get a cobalt to drive the 50 miles to work cuz the 14mpg sucks lol

Yea for a little extra coin those twf h1s would be worth looking into. Or find a used set on cl or pirate. But cheap narrow steel wheels should be fine for general dirt trails.

So im trying to decide if i want to full plate this or partial plate with dimple dies to match the rear. What does everyone else think? Any other ideas?





Edit: The front were the winch goes will be partial plated with d-rings and fair lead.

Imo i think 5.13s would be fine for you, I hear the I6 is pretty torquey. But I have no experience with one myself.

I really kind of like the leaf spring set up on your rig what springs are those are they actual lift spring off that sweet old chevy you had? .... Seriously considering something similar for mine I really think with the right leaf pack it'll do what I want. Don't flame me for this man but I'm curious what's the point of the PVC insert in the bead lock wheels?

The leafs are stock 1/2 ton chevy springs a couple removed. Im sure a link design would be better esp. for a unibody rig but I have no complaints so far. The pvc inserts are what hold the bead on, there 2 piece wheels that clamp the bead to the pvc insert, its the same way on h1s. Thats how it holds both beads. I did lots of research before i understood how it all worked.

I've seen leafs on a white wj at the con, it was lowwww. Maybe 5 to 6 inches of lift on 39s.

You should cut fender and lower the suspension when you redesign your front links. Leafs are pshhhh. Why leaf an already linked vehicle?? Leafs =toyotas and yj's. Hahah.

I've got 5.38s with my v8 and 37s, should be good for crawling. I might have to step up to 40s
I couldn't imagine and I6 trying to wheel with 37+ on anything less than 5.13s. Greg has 4.56s with his 36s. Hahah. And a tonnnn of skinny pedal on his 5 speed.
