I don't care for all the wheel weights, I think I may try airsoft bb balancing.
Rotate the tires a full turn it took me at most 8oz

Except for one that only took 3oz, no matter what I did the other three required over a pound. Either way, I'm removing all the metal weights and throwing 8oz of airsoft bb's in this weekend.

What type of balancer, which balancing method did you use, and what are your rims made of?

Aluminum wheels. Auto balancer at the local tire shop and the stick on weights so static? Or is that dynamic?

I believe that is indeed static, perhaps the greater imbalance in my rims than yours also plays an effect on the total balance. Either way I'm itching to hit a trail.

If you can find me a buyer for my 2 14 bolts and the d44 front then we will go out for sure
It's just 100$ + in gas alone for me.

hey some of yall need to move down here to Mississippi so I can have buds to jeep with...lol...we could have crazy jeep adventures...I do have one question tho what kind of trails are there in corn/wheat country? I mean I guess everywhere has it spots...ive been thru Kansas a few times and don't really seemto recall any heavily wooded areas...however not living there I could be very mistaken

Be carefull while Hugging the Trees...They leave dents on your Jeep....

Shhhhhh I'm not crazy...It's just the voices in my head
