The JK really opens a lot of rim choices for WJ owners.
After having the Duratracs all winter all over Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico, and now summer including a recent 1500 mile road trip, I can safely say these are the best tires on the market for my type of driving. Their snow and ice handling is second to none, they wear very well, and they are quiet and well mannered on the road. I honestly don't know if you could pay me to change to something else at this point...

Wanted - Rock Sliders, Mopar Sub Box. PM me if you're interested in selling them.

where'd you buy your replacement mirror? Same thing happened to mine but I'm having a hard time finding a quality heated style for my Overland

New upper control arm bushings

I installed my new rear upper control arm bushings. Very rusty and difficult to remove. My deepest thanks go out to my Snap-on metric tap and die set!

Been a busy week! Installed the IRO 3" lift, KOR A-Arm Spacer, Pro Comp MX-6 shocks, and IRO front track bar.

In addition I just got back my WJ from the tire shop where they put on 265/75/16 Hercules Terra Trac A/Ts and aligned it! Getting some vibes up front that seem to be from the driveshaft, so I'm dropping my transfer case an inch wednesday in hope of helping that. (I can't afford a new front driveshaft right now).

Anyways, here are pictures:

Dropping the t-case will make the front driveshaft angles WORSE. It only improves the rear angle.

Busy Weekend. BB and new isolators installed, Duratracs mounted, headlights replaced, and tails and fogs tinted.

Hopefully get the new JKS trackbar in next weekend.

yesterday i replaced my alternator. a year and a half ago it was replaced by a shop and then it died last friday. the spot where a cable connects from the battery to the alternator was completely toasted. I wish I had a picture of it but the bolt came loose so every time my Jeep hit a bump, it would spark. Everything around it was charred black and just flaking off. Extremely dangerous. The guy at the parts store just looked at it and went "Holy ****"

My Jeep uses the gas your hybrid saves.
