I thought so too, but was glad to see it did exactly what I wanted the coils to do. They were a ***** to install with how long they were

They're 33.5x10's, so I don't even come close to rubbing. However I bought them to prepare for 315/76/16s and they shouldn't rub

Ahh, I didn't realize they were 10's. I'm looking to get the same size (255/80/17). Glad to hear they'll fit with ease.

Thanks guys! The chrome grill is growing on me.

Took the hard top off the other day for Sunday's wheeling trip



I'll be installing braided lines today and finishing up the bumpstops. Plus install a lift on a coworkers xj, and drop the tank on a friend's xj. Busy day!!

How did wheeling the new rig go!?

I ended up comprimising with the lady and we went hiking up by schnebly hill. Saw a bunch of jeeps in and out of there. Is it a pretty fun trail or just scenic?

It went great! Tested out the 4L and 1st gear on a steep climb with ledges and it just walked right up. I was impressed. We had a good photographer on the trip, so I'm waiting for the pictures

Schnebly is pretty much just a scenic trail, it's great for those who go to sedona for mainly the views
