Do the tires stick out ? Kinda looks like it. Very nice setup :-)
Yeah they do by about an inch. The soft 8's have 4" of back spacing, compared to the ~6" on stock wheels. And thank you I've put a lot of research, time effort and money into this vehicle, and I'm happy with it. More to come!
Had the transmission rebuilt. Its smooth and leak-free once again. I also ordered a driveshaft conversion kit from Carolina Driveline to convert it to double-cardon/single-cardon design. I'm really hoping that works out okay.
I just installed mine, the hardest part was getting the pinion nut off... and a Bonus, it comes with directions!!!
I unbolted the one end of my steering stabilizer, to check it. Had next to no resistance,then it started leaking oil. So tomorrow, I'm going to get a Moog Trail boss if the parts place has it. It may be over kill for my stocker, but overkill is good sometimes.

It wasn't today, but over the last week I installed my lift; 2" IRO coils, Bilstein 5100's and 3/4" poly spacers up front, along with replacing all 8 of the isolators. Then yesterday got my tires from Kolak mounted up. 245/75r16 Duratracs on 16x7 soft 8's.
Pretty stoked on how everything turned out. I have many, many more plans for it.
EDIT: Sorry for the driveway shots. Havent had a chance to take it out and have a little fun yet.
That's looking sexy man! And the Fawkes bull bar mount with shackles is so good looking. my favorite looking WJ that has a minor lift man
DC? I was going to just replace it or have it rebuild I am short on funds and have to have it back before hunting season here in Idaho, I know I will need 4wheel drive for that
Do the ZJ conversion. There are notes all over the site about how to do this.. I'll probably have somewhere around $175 in mine but I replaced everything.. If you found one in really good condition you could probably do it for under $100 W/ the yoke. Lots of people on the site have done this.
