It took a lot of searching, and custom fabrication, to get the new bucket seats installed in the back. What you have to do is have twin girls, go to Wal-Mart, head to the baby section. Once there look for the bright pink seats....yes pink....they will look just like this...


Now put them in the back seat, side by side, take the seat belts and lace them trough the upper eyelets, squeeze your hand down between the two seats, and secure the buckles.

Oh, one more thing....take them out when the twins aren't with you, or you'll look like a dork!

Here is what it looks like now...


It didn't go without a hitch though. The new shims came with new centering pins. With those were some little washers...one for each pin.

First step of the day was to remove the transfer case drop. Then we, my daughter's boyfriend Josh, jacked up the rear end, supported the springs with jack stands, and started the swap.

The fisrt problem of the day came when the pins that RE sent with the shims was too big to fit the predrilled hole.... Thankfully a buddy of mines dad owns a suspension and allignment shop 2-minutes from my house. Even more thankfully....his dad was there at 10am on a Saturday. He drilled out the holes to their proper size!!

We returned to my garage and in went the shims. We were trying to figure out the whole pin, washer, thing. It didn't seem the the washers were needed, but we tried one. Guess what.....not needed. As Josh started to remove the pin the threads on it stripped, about half way down! I used a hacksaw to cut the pin, just above the the stripped nut. Josh was able to rethread the bolt onto the pin! We were back on track!

From there everything bolted up just fine. We took her out for a test drive and all is well, no more vibes!!!

Once that was all done I ordered 5 new 33x12.50 R15 TrXus MT's!! Hopefully they will be here, and mounted in time for the Badlands on the 28th!!

Jeffro, be very careful , that driveshaft is too long for your setup , it looks completely stuffed in at ride height, if compressed it will press on your tcase, eventually destroyn'it and- or bending the new ds.

Triple measure everything before driving it really, to me it looks just wrong like that! Maybe it's just the pic, but..!!!!!
Greetings from Italy!!!!

That wouldn't be good. I'm not sure if it's the angle of the picture or not. Anyone have pictures of theirs they could share? I'd hate to kill the entire rig! There is a bit more space than it appears there, so the angle has something to do with it I guess...but still. So photos?

That I can't answer....just don't now for sure. Putting in the 8* shims and trying it would only run you about $35, and some time, and would be one way to know for sure.

i agree with chris yj, there doesn't look to be any room for the driveshaft to compress when the axle articulates. even if some of it is the angle, i would think you would be able to see some splines. otherwise nice looking jeep!

Two shops, and a compression test....all seems to be fine. Sure it looks close, but I'd probably have to race the Baja 1000 for it to do go bad. I still might take an inch off, just for some added piece of mind.

New tread!

Well my TrXus 33x12.5 R15's arrived today. I had them mounted today too.

Here's how she looks now.....


I still have to go out and hit some highway speeds to see how well they balanced, as I've read they are a bit hard to tame. It takes a little more time for the rig to come to a stop now. Noticed that when an idiot slammed on his brakes, right in front of me, just two minutes after I left the shop.

I like the way she looks, much better now.

I have the same tires and i think that they are awsome. They are pretty quiet and they have a great bite off road. Good tire in my opinion.

Well after making the 8-hour round trip drive, to the Badlands in Attica Indiana, and spending 5-hours playing on the rocks, in the mud, creek, and on the trails, I'm pretty happy with my tire choice.

They ride well on the road, at 70mph, and made the day of off-roading better than it was with the Mickey Thompson's I had. I've read that the TrXus radials are hard to balance, mine are fine.

To sum it up...they look good, ride good, grip well, clean out well, handled in the rain @ highway speeds well, didn't slip in the rain during acceleration....now all I need is some snow!
