I probably would have choosed something else but I got them for cheap and I did not want to spend alot.


Had them on mine as well, hated them, switched to skyjacker hydro's and it's like night and day. I mean, I was losing fillings, and tightening bolts every week... They're really made for an F-150.

Current - 2008 Unlimited Wrangler Rubicon.

It is better to keep one's mouth shut and be thought a fool.... than to open it and remove all doubt.

Made two trips to Belle Tire before they got the balance right on the tires. Got one Silverstar replaced, found a crack in it so did not replace the other side - it may last for awhile yet. Got the alarm fuse wire installed and lubed the hood lock. Got in a new recovery strap from EBay (only 15,000 lbs but it will do for me - pulling dead cars out of the way at the mall isn't that hard ). Oil change done.

I took off the "Wrangler" and "4.0L" stickers that have been bugging me for the past 6 years. I also washed the engine bay and hopefully secured some 33's.
