Finally new wheels and tires.

-JK moabs painted black
- general grabber 245/70/17. Multiple threads say that's the largest that will fit in the spare well. But that must not be for A/T tires. These go in, but don't sit all the way down in the well so the rear cover won't close all the way

Before:


After:






I love it. This is on a Kodak HD lift with OME HD's and bilsteins. No I have to move on to fixing a bunch of stuff (heater core, airbag control module, rear wishbone control arm and ball joint, etc....

Looks really good. If you have on board air or carry a compressor like me, you could always try airing down the tyre a bit (or a lot!) to see if it will squeeze into the well a bit lower down.

Drove mine through the snow for the first time yesterday. Drove from sacramento to Tahoe.At fist I was really put off by the way the quadradrive acted. I would be driving around a bend, I would start getting some oversteer then I would shoot back straight once the fronts kicked in. I didn't like it at first and thought selec trac part time mode would be so much better for this. After driving for a while and having the same thing happen on numberous occasions I found out that giving a little gas while going around the corners actually helped with control. Kind of seemed like the Tc would get more responsive as I kept breaking loose. Like the transfer case had to warm up. If that makes any sense. Might be my imagination. I did a few doughnuts in a parking lot and scared the **** out of myself. Thought I was going to tip over. Never done that before either. By the end of the journey I was quite happy and satisfied with how the wj performed and I'm in no hurry to swap my tc.

Changed my oil, transfer case fluid. Put in a new pcv and tps. found a broken ground strap going from the transmission to the frame so I replaced the with new connectors and a new wire. Also cleaned and sealed my wheels and flipped them so I got white letters out now.

The tint is ripped and torn a little bit at the bottom in a little triangle. Not a big deal, but enough to bother me. Not bothered enough to have ripped it off yet, but it'll come off. As for court, all I have to do is take a picture of a navy blue WJ to court without any tint on it and I guess that should do the trick. LOL!
I had to take mine down to the dmv and let one of the state troopers look at mine so they would dismiss it. Here the law is 35% on the front doors and on SUVs and trucks all of the other windows can be as dark as you want. At one time I had 5% all the way around but I had to strip it recently to pass inspection and haven't got around to retinting it. Where in VA are you? I am up there somewhat frequently in Roanoke, Lynchburg and Brookneal to visit family and the police have never given me any problems about my tint.

I'm in Roanoke, actually!

I've always had tinted windows on everything, but it's never been a problem before. I knew it would happen eventually. 50% on the front two, and 35% in the rear is what's legal here. The windows on my TJ are just as dark, if not darker--but I also have my doors off or windows down (and the back windows out) as much as possible.

He followed me for a second I guess running the plate and making sure I had VA plates. It seems like you can do whatever you want in NC/SC and be legal as far as lights, tint, etc. If you're from out of state, it seems like they leave you alone. He was a ticket writing machine though

I'll take pictures after I take it to the car wash. Forgot how hard it is to keep a white vehicle clean. Gotta stop at the exhaust shop and get a muffler this week. I want to do Kolaks setup but can't afford it at the moment and my muffler is leaking out of all the seams. Think I'll just throw on a basic Magnaflow for now. Call me paranoid but I don't like having an exhaust leak with 2 kids in the back seat.

BTW, can anyone think of any good reason why the seal on the front door would always get sucked into the door panel against the glass? It makes the window roll down really slowly and will surely eventually kill the window motor. When we got it, the door panel had clearly been pulled off and had a broken clip or something causing it to be loose and squeaky. I asked them to fix it, and mentioned the window seal being an issue. They replaced the clips in it, but the rubber seal does the same exact thing. I want to fix it before it becomes a bigger issue.
