My guess is by now it has become a pile of broken parts that have sat for years and rusted to the ground but magically reassembled themselves because the mighty antiJF spirit within this rig is too strong to be forgotten! A machine of this caliber must be a unicorn! IT CAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNTTTTTT BEEEEEEEE REEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAALLLLL!!!!!!

35's stuffed get into the fenders pretty good these will do the same plus with the steering cranked and a front wheel stuffed you will rub bad on the back of the front fenders. Also start messing with geometry in the rear, raise the lower control arms on the rear axle, it will take care of a lot of the wheel hopping. Trust me it works and isn't all that much work
Thanks for the heads up about the rubbing! I plan on doing a little bit of work to the suspension, but I'm not sure how much I want to do to the axles that are in it now. I'm going to start hoarding parts to upgrade to wontons, and once I've got everything I need to make the switch I'll be swapping everything all at the same time.

Lol! I just got the other two tires installed on the other side today. I might take it wheeling next weekend and see how it does in Pungo.

All you want to screw with is where the lower control arms attach to the rear axle. Get the bolt holes in the lower axle side mounts even with the center line of the axle. Makes the lil Jeep climb better with a lot less wheel hopping

Kinda like this

Flat



Not so flat

Today I painted the hubs on my axles (Thanks Alex!) since I'm not running center caps with these rims. Then I put together the 2 drivers side rims and tires and installed them on the Jeep. Then I took a ride up to Walmart to get some groceries and see how it rides. It rode pretty good for the most part, typical Bias ply Swamper ride. It's funny to hear the air soft pellets all fall to the bottom of the tires as I slow to a stop.

I'm actually selling the tire carrier. I plan on just carrying a spare in my tow rig. I'll prolly find a worn down bald 38" tire for $50 on craigslist and use it as a trail spare. The hard top and tuffy security deck enclosure are for sale as well.
