I'd love to get some 33's but it's my DD and it's only a 4 cylinder with stock gears. I've read a lot about running that set up but it scares me because it is my dd and I am on the highway often.

Did a few things lately. Put some rocker panels on. Most importantly, I bought a set of 33 bfg a/ts and I finally got them on today It took me a while because I needed to buy bigger rims before I put the tires on, and I also recently lost my job so I did all this on a very tight budget. But this is how my rig sits now

few upcoming things are maintenance first, I need a new o2 sensor, and my power steering is leaking, gotta change the oil and get my right side rear passenger shock mount on so I can finally have a 4th shock. Then I want to add to my bumper, I was going to get a custom bumper with a small stinger on but it's just added weight so I may just have a guy make me small stinger that I can just weld on to the stock bumper, idk yet. Gotta get a spare, and a better sound system

Your Jeep is coming out great man. You're gonna love the new BFG tires. Good to see a Jeep build by another broke college student in Mass. Have questions about your window tint...what did you use and how did you go about doing it? It looks really good and I would like to do the same.

Well this man's a girl hahaha. I knew there was a way to tint windows so after reading a billion threads I found a write up from a guy who did his. I still have the tint on and it's holding up just fine in heat and I take my windows on and off daily without a problem. Just follow the write up and if you decide to do it just make sure you get the cut almost perfect so it isn't so big that it covers the plastic window AND goes over the cloth..make sense? Ha. Heres the link. Good luck!

Welcome I love my 4 cylinder. Sure a 6 would be nice but I never complain about my 4. I was worried about putting the 33's on but it's just fine!
