M & R couldn't fix my tire, so it's the ole mud tire spare for now. Just sunk $5 K into my son's truck to fix it, damn it looks good but i'm broke as a joke for a while.

Why couldn't they fix it? They fixed my MTZ no problem.

He said the sidewall was too soft and it probably had something to do with where it was cut. Where the tread and sidewall meet. I asked if he couldn't fix it atleast for a spare but they wouldn't.

Our 93 Silverado my $5k has gone into. new frontend, cab fixed and new bed, we did the work except paint, pulling the frame out and fixing cab corner. Just gotta get the trim done and factory wheels put back on. It's not a jeep but it's a father and son project! Just gotta sell the 98 F150 66000 miles to finance the jeep project now! I'll post a few pics when we get it all done. My dad bought this truck new in 93 so it mean about as much as the 65 ford my grandpa bought in 66 that my dad now drives! Money couldn't buy that '65 from us!

Thanks, its a labor of love man, I got 2 estimates of $10k to fix it and being my dad's truck it broke my heart. So with Jakes encourgement to fix it i hit craigslist and found all the body part except the plastic crap which i bought new. Your dad will understand where this comes from. See you at URE locked and loaded this spring i hope!!!!!

So, just doing some between class google fu, and I noticed that, unlike the TJ's with 3.63" BS, the RM Beadlocks for CJ's have 4.63" BS. Seems like to me that's rub territory. Decided to look into Method and their 15" has 3.5" BS, but as soon as you go to 17", that jumps up to 4.5". I have no problem picking up a set of Spidertrax but could I get away without them?

Obviously no rush here but I do plan to start collecting stuff throughout summer so I'd like to be sure.

You would need spacers. I have a full set of 2" spacers for 5x5.5 if you need them.

What width are the rock monsters? If 9" you could probably get away without them on 35s, but not on 37s. If they are 8" wide you need spacers for sure.

8.5. 37's are a guaranteed eventuality so may as well get the spacers.
