Installed a 2 inch lift and 2 inch wheel spacers.
Has anyone had any wobble issues with spacers. My
steering wheel wobbles at 40-50 mph. Do you think it has
to do with an alignment issue or something worse?

i would definitely check the alignment/balance first. wobble is caused by these issues the most...

On Sunday, I got rid of the stock tires and got some 31s. It just blows my mind that they put those girly tires on a brand new jeep. Is this because they just assume that everyone's going to go straight home and put a lift and 35s on their jeep so they don't bother putting an appropriate size tire on?

Actually, I would assume it's because something like 75% (pulled from my ***) of Jeep owners never change tire sizes.

This morning I got a call from a guy down at the local Jeep stealership in town.

They just got their very first JK, an unlimited Rubi, and they were unloading it off

the truck. So I drove the TJ into town to check it out. Its the 1st one ive ever got

to crawl all over and see in person and I like it...... But im still glad i've got my 05

oil change and tune up was the agenda for the day. Also Texan TJ, we had a jeep fest last weekend and the delarship had the new JKs there. After a test drive I am mixed on them I hate the engine but the ride is better. Im still happy with the 97 that is in my driveway.
