So... today was technically my last day of Spring break, so I decided to take a lazy day.
Work will resume first thing in the morning though.
So I think I've changed my mind on how to build this thing again.
Believe it or not that has only happened every single day.
For now I am going to keep it on the stock suspension, with only a 1" BL. I'm going to run a set of 265x75r15 Hercules Terra Tracs that I already have. Still undecided on rims, might just go with the hackneyed Soft 8. They are pretty small for a 265, barely any bigger than my 30" Cooper STTs I ran on first TJ back 3 years ago. Still going to have the Rubi 44 rear w/ 4.10s. Then I'm going to daily drive the crap out of it and do some light offroading.
Hopefully working full-time this Summer with fund my mid-arm project for the LJ (which will score this TJ a set of Currie arms) with enough dough left over for a few mods to the TJ. Namely, I would like to do a custom 0" deep tranny skid, DIY highline fenders, outboarded rear shocks, and extended front shock towers (around 10" travel because I will be keeping stock coils). A set of 33" Mud Dawgs I used to run on my LJ before upgrading to 35s will finish it off for a nice mild LCOG set-up. Don't hold your breath though, I will probably change my mind again by then!
Here is the tire I will be running, but not with that rim (since I don't have a full set and they have been discontinued):
