Then I guess I can attribute the sagging to a POS lift. It's not a dd and I don't intend to do any hardcore wheeling (just average core) with it do I guess I'll just ride it til it breaks.

Ya, I about lost a fist full, but then I remembered I operate better with a beer in my blood stream.

I'm all for getting a good deal on tires, but I'd be VERY hesitant to order tires online. Here's why: Warranty. You have issues, you can't just go to your local Discount Tire for a patch/fix/replacement. You have to ship things back, get it swapped out, and that's assuming you have the approval. Just a LOT of hassle.

It just becomes a question of whether the hassle is worth it. Besides, I will try to support local. When I got my TrXuS MT's (33x12.5x15), I got 5 mounted and balanced for 800 from Tennessee Offroad up around Nashville. Granted that was a few years ago, but I'd give em another shot when I get new tires later this year.

As for grinding, here's what I've been up to...

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

Paul, there you go using logic again

Are you going to 35s? Your current tires don't look bad, you should be able to quickly sell them.

Keep the photos of them fenders coming... looks good.........

Exactly, just a lot of hastle. That's why I do my best to ignore all extended service plans. The cost of a patch is minimal, and I'm fine with that. But, I do see your point, I know wal-mart had a good plan I used plenty of times on my first car years back.

Don, no plans for 35's. Remember, I have 4 squirrels and a D35.

I just wanted a bit more clearance when articulating and no rubbing on the sharp sheet metal and stock flares. And no having to worry about droopy eyes any more. I KNOW you know what I mean by that comment. Little Jeep looks sad.

4 squirrels, and a D35.... that is enough reason to avoid 35s. You are running 4:88 though....???

**EDIT** I just read your profile.... 4:88....

Looks good Paul. You're going to have insane amounts of travel now that you basically have no fender.

Yup. That's kind of the plan. I've rubbed my flares for WAY too long.

And I'm ready for a Huntsville winter. I'll have armor all around.

C'mon, slide on into me! LOL. Gotta love it when the roads freeze over. I'm looking forward to a winter this year.

This is off topic (from tire talk), but I have (2) 4.2L long blocks I am trying to get rid of, for core value. Does anyone know where they can be taken (preferably in Decatur area)? I keep getting told I can get $200/pc for core, but where?

Thanks,

Scott
