It is alright, a little harsh because I cheaped out on shocks but they aren't bad. The skyjackers are definitely better than the rough country.

I am sure it was posted elsewhere in her, but I didn't really read everything... Are those skins the Treadwright retreads? If so, how are you liking them? I saw an article in four wheeler awhile back that said they seemed pretty good.

My wife has an '03 pretty much just like yours, but with a 2 1/2" lift only and 245/17 series Grabber AT 2's.

I am building some bumpers for it in the spring as soon as I finish my Cj and hopefully use hers to tow my CJ out to the Springs for our anual run.

They have been great, no complaints on my end. Have about 10K on them and they look like the day I got them, awesome on the trail and the street.

Yep, english is not a strong suit of mine. I think I am better at Spanish than I am at English, and I suck at Spanish.

Got to work today. The front is almost done besides the track bar being back in (new bushings), front driveshaft (all new u-joints), and JKS discos (new ones for lift). I am still deciding if I want to go back and work on it. I am pretty dead from the week of work so I think it can wait until tomorrow.

Anyways, here are a couple teasers and an interesting picture of my tires (31 retreads) next to my boss's 33s. Someone tell me if they can tell a difference in height cause I sure can't. And one of my boss's rig, it is a 77 J10 with a 401 Fuel Injection. We are almost done with it but it is taking a break while I do mine.

haha yah i cant tell much of a difference! What is the actual heights on both the re-treads and the new 33s? The 31s actually look bigger! but, it all changes when mounted and blown up.

I bet they are the same hight because re-treads run bigger so your 31's are probably more like 32's. And the tires on your boss's rig look like a 33x12.5x15 which in alot of cases I have seen that size measure smaller, more like a 32''. So if his run small and yours run big maybe they met somewhere in the middle (32'') making them look the same hight?
