oh. Yeah I did 60mph all the way down with minimal vibes. Brakes were still airy. My transfer case is still screaming at me but other then that it was fine going down. Coming back was a little different. Had a lot of front wheel wobble at lower speed but again did around 50-60mph all the way home. Was a lot to due with that 38" unbalanced spare.

oh they dug and I loved them. The side wall was more of my own fault. Didn't have enough air in the tires.

I ran the mtr's on 15 psi, and one time it jacked up the side wall bad. Made it super lumpy and now the tire is only good for off road. Idk, maybe if did something wrong like ran it low on the wrong rims, but I never lost the bead. Idk, I was surprised it did that.

So been a little but since an update. Finally pulled the shaft out of the front. Sheered it right off. Will probably just throw another stock shaft in but have been looking at chromos so we'll see what money allows and when. Still need to fix the brakes. Going to do a 3500 master cylinder swap and that should get my pedal a little harder. Also since my brother has to drive it while he's back in town I picked up some 17s. Still waiting on the forth.. Oh yeah and they came with 40s lol I'll probably throw them on for a photo or 2 but then will be breaking them down to put my old 35" ATs on so it will be a little better on the road. Other then that probably not going to do too much to the Jeep for a little while. Need to recoup a little plus gonna get some work done to the truck.

I use to not like those h2 wheels, but the more I see them the more they grow on me.

What's the backspacing and width on them?

Yeah I like them. May end up keeping them for good. Figuring it is about lighter with a 40 then mine are with 37s. Just will need to find some 37s that will fit on them. As for back spacing from what I've read they are 5 5/8" backspacing

Yea, going 17 is not as cheap as sticking with the 16.5. It's hard to beat the 16.5, that's what I was going to do just to save cash. You could always get some 16.5 steelies for 300ish


And damn I can't see the vid

Did the Dodge 3500 Master Cylinder swap today. Didn't take long at all. Other then making a longer push rod and bending some lines bolted right up. I do think I made my new push rod a little short. bought a 1/4x28 2" bolt, cut the head off and rounded it down. Will probably make another a little bit longer. The pedal is hard but is lower then It should be. I think a longer push rod will bring it up a little. I'll also probably make some new lines to the proportioning valve to make it look a little better. The reservoir fits but is really tight. Will see if I can use my old reservoir that is angled for the hood for a better fitment. So far so good. She stops a lot better now so I'm happy.

So got the new master cylinder worked out.. Works great! Still need to try to figure out a bigger booster now. Might try a ZJ booster with front and rear discs. I've read where they push a little more booster for the rear discs. Bought another set of tires. Set of 35" Toyos I'm going to put on the H2s for a little while. Going to sell the 37s for now. They are just too heavy for my set up. I'll wheel the 35s for a little while till I can afford a set of lighter 37s. Plus that way I should be able to beat on it like a use to without worry. Through the H2s and 40s on yesterday for a local Jeep Cruise in. I love the way they look lol might have to eventually big it to handle them haha the rear end is a little too narrow for them but whatever. Going to have the 35s put on this week. Need to start saving a little more for a trailer and cage later on. So will probably be holding off on the Jeep for a little while but never know lol may come across a sweet deal. We'll see.
