I'm going to go with 4.5 SUA. You probably read it right I probably typed it wrong.

I have set of Ecco's on my 99 if you are interested in those?

I have the same carpet kit to go in my truck as well. If you don't know it their website states that the carpet should not be left rolled up in the box for an extended period of time. I have mine unrolled and laying on the bed in our extra bed room....the wife loves it there

The pic looks like it's just black, what color is it?

Incredible build thread! Makes me wish I could have found a 4x4 MJ when I was looking at buying Jeeps :P And don't think I didn't look!

I'll pm you my email, and send me some pics, I may still change them out. I like the soft 8's especially the fact that there's a huge variety of 32" tires in 16". The guy I was talking to about the Grizzlys email me some pics, here's one of them:



It's black. I had mine laid out on our bed the night I pulled it out (talk about unhappy), but now it's laid out flat on the attic floor.

9.5" might be a little hard to level out

I'm a slave to my digital camera, I even take it (or my phone to the Pull a Part) so I got plenty of pics. No cats need die.

I test drove a MJ when I worked at the Stealership back in the 90's and I was hooked. Didn't have the cash then. I looked for most of this past spring before I found this one.

They are 265/75R16's or 32 X 10.50-roughly. It's gonna be my DD so it'll see a little of bit of everything. I like the Cooper ST's, but I personally haven't had very good luck with Goodyears.

Very nice. Always wanted one of these trucks and have a friend selling one now. I love my wife too much to bring home another Jeep.
