It looks like a circular piece of metal tack welded onto the driveshaft.

Which is low but its something. I only had 7 wide rims anyway and figured if I am going to get bigger tires in the future I will need larger rims then anyway so why not now.
You have less chance popping a bead with a 8" wide wheel vs a 10" wide wheel. 8" wheels are about the best size for 12.5" tires but 10" wide wheels will work just fine. If your not too concerned about airing down I guess it comes down to looks...

^^correct

It takes more air pressure to keep the tire out on the bead with a wider wheel. As you air down the sidewall wants to pull in towards the center of the wheel and away from the bead

OK so I got my Jeep to the specialist and this is what they said. That my axle wasnt on the pin it missed by an inch and I totally over looked it..... Fail That is why I had the vibrations and the steering feeling that way at 50mph. So I picked it up and limped it back to the shop. Once there I asked the P.O. of the tires if he ever had them balanced and got a No. SO obviously we took care of that and every tire was totally out of whack. 1 tire needed 19 oz of weight on it to bring it back and each rim needed over 2 oz on each side LOL. Talk about shot . Once I got those done we fixed the miss alignment in the steering wheel and fixed a few minor things. Oh and reset the axle. MAN OH MAN what a difference that thing was smooth even with those old mud tires and even on the front axle only. I am so pumped to be back in my jeep as my DD now. . I drove the new driveshaft to the shop to get cut and balanced and I will have that monday and Fed ex said the rims and all will be in monday mornign and the tire appointment will be soon after. SO Hopefully my luck will turn just a little and I will have an awesome week and soon get some new pics for you guys.

Post up some wheeling pics guys its too long in here since some pics help a Brother out show me some flex

Yes even with taller tires. There's definitely a difference, I go down to 5 psi with my 8" wheels and 12.5" tires but I wouldn't go down pass 12 psi with a 10" wheel... You will also loose tire height with 10" wheels vs the 8" wheels and the tires will be wider on the 10" wheel. My YJ has 8" wheels and 35x12.5 BFG KM2s and my CJ has the same tires on 10" wheels and the tires on my CJ are a good inch shorter then the ones on my YJ...

I had some pics of the new shaft and all the other stuff I will take some new pics tomoororw and post them. But if anybody can help me with an idea or somethings to check maybe I would greatly appreciate it

Like I said Once the vehicle is warmed up and been driving well it then will start to bog out or cut out. Now once I let off the gas and push in the clutch I can rev it up all I want. But once im going and I get to about half way to the shift point the motor will cut out. Then it will do the same in either gear and just about any speed but will run ok at the lowest end of the shift. I thought I could power threw it and just mash the throttle and got nothing it actually just cut the motor off until I let off the gas then the motor would kick back in. But like I said it would only do that while in gear once out I can run it however. So I did look at at the motor and seen some hoses that werent connected so I reconnected them and tapped them back in place really well. But I dont think that was it really cause once I drove down the road it still did it. So like I said Im lost. The only thing I did recently was put on the T-case drop kit and did my brake lines over. Any ideas ?

Check your fuel lines. When I re-did mine I had a pinched line, I could rev it all unwanted to in park but when I tried to go over 2000 rpm while driving it would bog out. Probably no it but its worth checking.

Yeah man same here I fixed the exhaust and fixed the vacuum lines and still it would do it. But only after it warms up a while after driving it down the road. Its not right away.

Also so after doing those things to try and fix it it didnt work. And so I just pulled over and shut the truck off for about 5 sec and then started it back up and it didnt do it anymore ?? ?? I was able to rev it and pt it under stress and load and hammer the throttle and it was just fine but then I was home and parked it for the night Im lost maybe a sensor ?

All right so lastnigt we powered threw and dropped the tank changed the fuel filter changed the pump and cleaned the pmp filter. MAN that filter was black and clogged completely. So I went ahead and washed that out for awhile and got it new looking. After intalled it was around 2 in the morning and after working on the trucks for 18 hours straight I just drove it home. But on the way home I didnt notice any problem like I had before. SOOOO I may have gotten lucky and fixed it . So now im hopeing it will run good for a long time and give my wallet a break lol

i was able to diagnose it was the fuel pump or the filter by hooking up a gauge to the rail and watching the presser drop and bounce all over and then at times run just fine. I think with a combo of the gas filter and the pump filter gone bad and the pump being old it was on its way out and this was able to fix it
