Hahaha going one at a time? I have a jar that I put coins in every day, I call it my tire fund. Counted it up today, it's not even enough to buy 1/3 of a tire. Just curious, how the heck are you getting 13k in 12 months?

When I go off to college I get either a new car (same deal my sister got budget of 20k) or keep the Jeep and get 20k minus the purchase price ($7800). If I dont keep the Jeep I'll be getting a Subaru Impreza WRX. Either way I get a sweet ride.

and one at a time, I'm limited to working 25 hour weeks at $7.75/hour getting paid every two weeks. So, In two months I'll be able to at least ride on some new rubber.

That is a SWEET deal. My parents spotted me the money for a couple Jeep things I bought, but otherwise it's been all up to me. I say keep the Jeep. Ever since driving my Jeep, nothing else in the world is fun to drive anymore. I've driven friends cars and trucks and nothing really compares. Maybe it's because I know every bolt and rattle, either way I love it.

I might have to do that, I need some new rubber too, 35s SUCK price-wise. Mine are so bald that I have to slip the clutch a lot when I start on a rainy day or I'll spin the tires and fishtail. I'm working 3 part-time jobs and paying $3.50 for gas at 10-13mpg sucks. I work roughly 40 hours a week and I'm still broke as anything. Last night I had to sit down and scrounge for gas money to get to my college class this week. It doesn't help when stuff keeps breaking...

Dad made a deal that if the test 35 fits, he'll buy the other 3 and I pay him back overtime.

Lookin good! I like those fenders. I was about to suggest you do the TJ flare mod for the rear flares to open up space because for some reason I was convinced you had a YJ...despite the obvious title of the thread

What gearing do you have? And are you gonna do anything about your breaks and steering because of the 35s?
