Thanks

Going to be scuffing up the floor soon and prepping it for some rustoleum enamel before I install new carpet.

Got some free 33x12.50s from my cousin who upgraded to 35s on his tj.

worn but they'll do for a while. I ordered my rims which weren't really what I wanted (15x8) so I went with 15x10. Backspace of 2.5" which is what I wanted regardless of 15x8 or 10.

when I do get new tires however I want to get 33x15.50. I think it'll look nice on the 10" wide rims.

So I finally found the pro comp wheels I want. Style 51 15x10 2.5 reverse backspace. 93 bux each..kinda steep for steel rims IMO...what u guys think? Apparently this is the only one pro comp makes. Summit has a style 52 on their site with those specs at 67 a wheel but only 2 left and pro comp says those are discontinued.

So it appears the drivers side rust ate through more of the floor than I thought. I could probably get by without replacing it but id rather replace it. Any recommendations as to brands of replacements that fit the best without a lot of trimming? Do you just coat the underside after to prevent rain water etc from rusting it again?





Also, what does this bolt go to? Roll cage, seatbelt? Little rust in this area also... do they have replacements for this?



Lastly, I'm trying to get my seat out and this last bolt just keeps spinning. Can't seem to get it loose. The other bolt in front of it broke so ill have to drill that one out. Should I just cut this with a saw?

UFVJ, would you be so kind to fill out your vehicle specs in your profile? Jeep looks great, my first yj was white, I really like white jeeps.

Jeep looks great, very clean. Just a quick note on the 87, keep an eye on your trans, us 87s have a bastard trans transfer case combo that was only used in 87. It likes to spring leaks when the case stretches and mine currently has no synchronizers on 2nd gear, you may want keep an eye out for a good ax-15 np231 combo you can have ready just in case.

Mine has been great, and with only 80k it seems like it should have a lot of life left. Whenever it breaks I will replace with that one however. But I bet it'll pony have 85k by the end of the year if that. Lol

Let me start by saying I love how wide the stance is. 15x10 with 2.5" backspacing. 33x12.50s.

The jeep is STOCK. I didn't think they'd fit but I'm not driving it right now so I was just messing around and decided to try. Surprisingly they fit. The rub flare up front only at almost full lock at the corner of the flare by the door. Considering TJ flares but I like my YJ flares better to be honest.

I cannot explain enough how much I love the stance of these wheels!!!

I'm in the process of taking all the flares off. Gonna ride around like that for a while, until I decide what I want to do, be it a lift or tube flares. Likely metalcloaks.
