What you think?
Should I just get a new rim and not mess with this for 50 bucks?
or
Try to fix it?
I say fix it as good as you can and use it for the spare.

Hey TJ guys

Not about to go into the TJ section and ask this, since it's probably been asked 90 million times, and too lazy to search that section D:

Stock ZJ coils (non up-country) -- how much lift would they net a TJ? 2-3"?

im pretty sure my stock xj coils gave a tj about a 2.5 inch lift before adding an aftermarket bumper. and from what i recall i think if you use zj up-country springs in an xj you get about 1 inch, so xj and zj coils are similar when under a tj?

Remember I've got V8 ZJ coils too - word on the street is they're a bit higher spring rate, though don't know if that adds to height

it might for the simple fact that there is less weight in the front of the tj to compress them to what they normally are under a zj.

you giving them to someone for a BB?

How does that get me beer Ryan? Buying somebody's "old busted" UC coils takes away from the beer money!


Besides, I got Teraflex "new hotness" already on the Heep

Teraflex "new hotness"? I prefer the RE "old skool playa" springs myself.

Did you ever do a hub-fender mearurement on you heep after you added the spacers? I'd like to see how much more height I can add before things start going awry. I know, I know, all Jeeps are different.
