mine was a '00 with single cam as well. I built mine for looks and a nice DD so I could save $$ in HS. the interior was sick!! wish I still had pictures.. 13" tv in dash with ps2 and had 2 12" Rockford phosphate punch in the trunk. only thing that sucked is that it was slow as s**t

so two things happened today..

the good.. ordered new spring isolators
thanks Kolak!

the bad.. got death wobble on the highway when I hit a large pot hole in a construction zone. these 35's I got are the main cause so I guess I will list them on the local classifieds.. the PO did not rotate them well and it's no good. death wobble also shot all of my TRE's so I guess it's time to order more

haha I had to fix a coil spring isolator before I went home so I asked if I could use the loading ramp as an RTI ramp to fix it.. so while I was up there I took a couple pics

so I'm lovin the look of 35's on my jeep but these ones aren't treating me well.. they didn't wear even and gave me death wobble this weekend and ruined a TRE. so tomorrow I will be picking up a set of 4 35x12.5x17 km2's with 3/4 tread left that are mounted on soft 8's. hopefully these treat me better
