So i dont have any pics yet, but the only problem ive had so far is that one of the bolts (strut to control arm) was rusted to the bushing. So we cut it off and they dont sell new ones. We ordered one very close to it in size so hoefully it fits. Everything else is going on perfectly...pics to come soon!

cool, im sure you will be all good. I think most people are running the 285's and no trimming with those AEVs

16 with an open checkbook? Wow! What do you do?

Also your WK is going to be very nice, just be prepared to improvise if you plan on wheeling it, they are a fussy beast on the trail.

Haha, figured someone would ask that. Well the checkbook isn't totally open, im just looking for every possible idea out there.

Last fall, my grandmother passed away, leaving quite a bit of money for me in her will for me to purchase a new vehicle. I purchased my Grand Cherokee. Now, with much money saved up and a little help from the parents, ive been spending like a nut.
