Holy crap! Your WJ makes those 33s look so small! How come you seem to have so much more space in the wheel wells than I?

Right rear corner = trimmed.
On a slight sloap causing it to lean to the right a bit making the left side look taller.

And I dunno, I am measing 7" of lift up front. Give me a day of driving to let it settle some

Ride is good. Pot holes and bridge expansion joints don't jostle the steering wheel one bit which is amazing.

The Clayton 6" coils are a lot stiffer then the Teraflex 4" coils. I don't have nearly as much body sway with the new coils in there. With the 4" I felt kind of unstable on the highway.

Yeah, it has actually been almost 2 years 2 years come this winter.

Ball joints are working well, even though I accidently bought "Crown" brand BJ's online instead of the Spicers I meant to buy. Oh well, I feel confident I can replace them in the future in an hour per side at most. Ball joints were to replace a clunk I had up front and was the cause of my DW up front. DW every time I hit 35 with an intense vibration.

Well it has been a while since I have posted.

Last weekend I installed a 242 SYE and am totally vibration free now

Last week I ordered a Flowmaster Hushpower II muffler and it showed up Wednesday...should be an easy install as soon as I get the welder hooked up in my new garage...

Monday I ordered these wheels and they showed up tonight while at dinner:


Tomorrow at lunch I'll order some new tires (BFG MT KM2's 315/75-16's).

Ordered 315/75-16 BFG MT KM2's. Should be mounted tonight/tomorrow morning. Woot.

Last of the big purchases for a while.

The "ideal" backspacing for the WJ is 4"...AEV only makes the wheels in 4.6" BS and the tires are wider so I was taking a gamble getting these. At full lock I hit my control arms. Time to limit that turning radius
