I live the skinny wheels as well. I don't regret the change at all.

Very excited to see this thing go together! You've got the same taste in Jeeps that I do, apparently.

Little cutting and welding and got the 5x5 wheel to fit on my spare tire carrier.

Well last week I routed the speaker wire in the roll cage for a cleaner look. (Sorry no pic, didn't want to rice up my thread :lol

As I was checking the brake pads this morning I noticed this..



So naturally I looked up Stu's site and did some reading. So I bought:

Timken Bearing
SKF Wheel Seal
RP 75/140
Misc sealant

So then I went back and inspected the pads and rotors... looks like its time to get some new gear..

After about 2 hours of searching and reviews I dropped some coin on these:

http://shop.blackmagicbrakes.com/Jee...-105-67063.htm

Not a huge upgrade but have been getting amazing reviews from everyone on the board.

As much as I want to be mad about spending $500 for this it needed to be done. Can't wait to dive into the rear end and get that seal replaced. I love a challenge and pops just bought a press. What timing!



Also bedlined the front. Going to look imp: with the winch, fenders and JK turn signals.
