I haven't posted here in a while, this is a great way to keep track of when I made my upgrades.

That being said, I haven't made many changes lately. Some are on the horizon though out of necessity. I have recently fallen victim to the infamous "death wobble" I hear so many jeepers talking about. So, time for some research and some eventual component upgrades.
Good luck...had it on my first jeep and fixed it somehow through tightening random stuff and rebalancing wheels. Not sure what it was exactly.

Did the rims fit no problem or did you have to trim?

They fit, they were stock 18 saharas. Think the tires were bigger than stock but i replaced the tires with new duratracs and had them rebalanced.

If you meant my rims, they did fit. You have to be careful with 15" rims and clearance over the brake calipers. Mine fit as long as the balancing weights inside the rim are not double staked.

Just to add to this, you also have to check when you rotate your tires. I heard an odd knocking sound once after a service, come to find out that wheel with no previous problems was shaving down a wheel weight with each rotation in its new place. Was no big deal once we realized what was happening, the shop replaced the weights in a different configuration and no issues since. I was surprised the weight was literally being shaved instead of getting knocked off completely!

YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

good job so far! The bedliner came out very well and thumbs up on the Tuffy stuff they make some nice products. If you haven't ordered your tires yet, consider running a 16" or 17" rim, with a 15" you'll have to grind the calipers down in the front for the rim to clear the brakes. Also, you'll find out many tire manufacturers aren't making too many 35" tires for a 15" rim any more.
