About the control arms... It's gonna take a lot more than just control arms to widen your wheelbase

Time for another update. Went wheeling the other day with a buddy of mine on his Ford Rapter. Pretty nice truck, it has a cam in it and some type of exhaust. I got stuck once coming out of a creek. No damage to the jeep except I pulled my rear breather tube of the axle and it spewed diff fluid everywhere so I'll have to clean that up and clean my diff fluid.

On upgrades, I'm about to order some race line beadlock wheels how has everybody been balancing them? Beads on the insides, stick in weights? Any insight would be appreciated!

I am also about to order some new shocks to replace the worn out old RC shocks! I'll be uploading some pictures of everything when they come in!

Hahaha they will be up shortly, but it's all good man I'll be helping with you lift as soon as you get it!


Here are some shots right after I got them on. Seeing how badly in balanced they were.... They were actually balanced better than my old wheels. So the ride is a lot better.

These pictures have the wheels with 3.25 or 3.75 back spacing I think, and my 2in wheel spacers. The spacers will come off shortly though. Just a little too wide.

Okay so here's a small write up.
1. The first thing I did was get the jeep up on some jack stands, and take the wheels off.

2. I was going to try and take the wheels off and it intimidated me, so I took them off and loaded them up in my friends truck. I took them up to a friends shop and got him to dismount them.

3. I came back to my house and started working on getting them on the wheels. It was super easy getting the tire on the wheel. Then I realized that you needed some longer bolts to start the beadlock ring on the wheels.... So a quick run to Lowe's and a 1.26 cents later I come back with some new shiny bolts to start the ring.

4. Started mounting the beadlock rings on and you must have a torque wrench for this, as they need to be tightened to 25 ftlbs and no more or you will screw up the nutcert.

5. So once you get the rings bolted down and torqued to spec. Then you'll want to start the airing up process. To start the bead, just crank up the air pressure and start pumping!

6. Once the bead pops on and it's starts filling up. Fill to 25 psi and you'll be good to go! Check for leaks, and make sure they are all the same pressure.



That's all on the wheels, I installed some rear sway bar links, cleaned and waxed the jeep this weekend. Next weekend should be installing new shocks, and front and rear bump stops hopefully.

Thanks guys! Now I just need to get some time to go wheeling! It's been a while since I've been to a park, but I'm trying to get some buddies up and go to uwharrie or the gulches in the next month or so!

Okay for anyone watching this thread. I've got a couple of updates, I got a cb for the Jeep that needs to be installed, pulled the front drive shaft to be rebuilt, and I also pulled the 2" spacers off the Jeep so it's not super wide.

So now I have a few things I need to do to the Jeep. I have an annoying shimmy in the steering when hits bumps, any advise would be great. I've checked all the tre's they are greased up and tight, tire just got balanced so I'm at a loss. Also I and having a poping noise coming from the front end when stopping, and moving haven't had a chance to get under and look at the control arms yet. I think the upper bushings on the axle are going bad. So we will see what happens their.

The next thing to be purchased will be a currie rear track bar my stock one is going bad and is squeaking and moaning really bad. Got to get a new one soon!
