I had some new tires mounted on the stock rims. I'm going to be running two different sets of wheels and tires depending on what I'm doing with the Jeep at the time. One set is 235/65-17s with a VERY street friendly tread mounted on the stock rims. These will be for long distance driving to get better MPG and for when I'm towing with it. The second set will be 255/80-17 BFG Mud Terrain KM2s on a set of Rubi rims. These will be the wheeling tires. I still need to buy these as the Rubi rims currently have worn 255/75-17s on them. I'll still wheel these tires until I can afford to get the new, taller treads. Pics coming soon.


2005 Dark Khaki 4.7L Grand Cherokee Laredo. 2.25 RRO lift, trimmed and hammered pinch welds, 255/75-17 BFG M/Ts (for now), 4xGuard Matrix basic with 2" receiver up front, stock towing package receiver out back, extraction points front and rear. 154K and counting...

Replaced the inner tie rod with a friend, wasn't that hard as it took us about an hour. However my outer tie rod boot is pretty ripped up on the same side.

Just be careful with those tires near rocks. On our last trip to Uwharrie we had a guy slice the side way open on a really mild trail. He was aired down and the tires were brand new.
