I picked up the 36s on sat and had them mounted, armor will prob. be another week or 2 from savvy.

I havent mounted the tires yet cause ive been working crazy amounts of overtime everyday, and it's about 2 degrees outside, i plan on doing it when i get home from work tomorrow morning

i cant wait to see how she drives with the 36's too.... they are alot bigger and heavier!

Well, got the 36's mounted, they look frigging sweet, but im having some severe vibes with them at anything about like 20 MPH..... they had dynabeads in them already before mounting on my wheels... But i think i may have to go pay somebody to get the balanced, or at least bust the bead, suck out the old crap and put in some new air soft bb's or something... maybe it was the wrong amount.

At least im hoping its that and not the SYE... i shouldnt have to redo the pinion angle after new tires right? i didnt do much driving with the 33's and sye, but it wasnt like this when i did, so im assumings its the tires.

here is a pic of the tires.... I cant beilve how much taller it is, im 6 foot tall and i have to literally jump in *** first to get in.

also including a picture of current drive shaft angle... look good or no?

edit: AND ALSO ! i think i may have over filled my tranny, and it's blowing out the vent, i had alot of fluid drip out of my tummy tuck ( you can see the stain on the driveway ) i think my issue was i went up to the fill hole when the tranny was lowered for easy access , then when i raised it up into the tummy tuck, the fluid was just too much )

Looks great on 36's

As far as i can tell your driveshaft angle looks good. Like you said its most likely the new tires causing the vibes because it shouldn't have effected your pinion angle at all.

im probably gonna be dropping the jeep off at the shop tommorow to have an engine issue fixed i cant seem to solve, i'll see if they can pop the bead, suck out the old dyna bead crap, and try throwing in air soft bb's or just putting stick weights on ( which i HATE ! )
