$800 WITH rims and all? See. . . I can handle that price. Guess I need to save up and then keep my eyes glued to the forum classifieds and CL. First I need to buy a rear bumper, SYE, and a few other small things though. Maybe tires by next winter.

Ok, this might be ridiculous, but thought I'd throw it out there to see what you guys think.

I already have my 33's mounted on the different bolt pattern wheels. 6 lug front (Waggy) and 5 lug rear (Ford). If running 2" spacers would be better than the 2" 2-piece adapters I could pick up spacers for the front instead. Then I wouldn't have to get the front wheels remounted on the 5 lug wheels. I could get a spare and have it mounted on a 6 lug wheel (already have 2 extra 5 and 6 lug wheels). Then I could buy ONE of the 5 to 6 lug 2-piece adapters and use it if I get a flat in the rear. The only thing this would not allow me to do is rotate my tires.

I don't know..... the thought just popped into my head driving to work and thought I would put it out there to see if it was a valid option or just ridiculous.

There's one thing wrong with your solution. Spare should be for the rear, longer axle(no spacer!!), if you put the adapter/spacer on one side of your rear axle you're gonna dog-track your way home.
You're really gonna have a lot of jacked up problems with two lengths of axles and two bolt patterns. I know you don't wanna hear it, but the F150 front would be an awesome fix to the whole problem. You could possibly just trade the waggy 44 straight across.

FACK! I know.... another guy on pirate that I bought my steering off of suggested I swap my 9" 3rd member into a shorter 9". That sounds like a good plan to me, but just don't feel like dealing with it right now.

I'd be swapping an axle just so I wouldn't have to type that mess again let alone actually deal with it.

eh, I'm bored at work. I have time to waste on useless long-winded posts.

Think I'm still rolling with the 2" 2-piece adapters on the front. **** it....

hahahahaha.... I like that I'm up to 6 votes informing me that I have no business owning my XJ and that I should just drive it off of a cliff.

FYI.... I ordered the 2" adapters from Motosport-Tech (pirate 4x4 member) last week.

When are we driving this thing off a cliff??

I got rear wheel spacers from the same guys and they've held up fine for the last 2 years. Just use a torque wrench and re torque them after the intial install. I would have gotten a different front housing(j10 44 or hpf250 and buy gears) or cut down the rear but thats just me.

Who knows.... maybe the first time I take it to Rausch Creek to wheel

If not then....maybe after I get its replacement and get all my aftermarket parts swapped over.
