I think its going to look good too

do you just not want to regear, due to expense, etc., or have you had bad experiences with that...?

I'm painting after I get the tires mounted. I'm afraid the rattle can paint will get ruined during mounting. So i'll mask em and spray em!

Yep, DuraTracs. I can give you a heck of a deal on wheels and tires! Or if you just want one or another? 700 miles on em! I know they fit the WK but not sure on the WJ. My brother had dibs on them but will let me know for sure this week if he still wants them for his WK. I waited a bit too long for him.

Bridgestone Dueler AT'S. I don't think the'll fit without a lift Joel! A little update. The tires are mounted. not sure about the setup yet. I ordered inch and a half US alloy spacers to bring them out a bit due to some rub at full turn on track bar. I need to lift a bit. It just looks too low to me. The third brake light had to be cut off to fit the spare and I temporarily ty-wrapped the light to the wheel. I also ordered the RockHard third brake and lisence plate relocation bracket. A couple of quick pics on this wet day!

It does need a little boost. Maybe some Rubi coils and a small spacer (3/4)? I picked up a little over 2" with that set up for cheap. Wheels and tires look great though, I like that color even more now!

Welcome back too by the way!!

What size are they? I think the ones on there now are 245/55/17, but I'm not at home to check. The wheels will work for sure, and I'm contemplating a new suspension the the WJ too....

Nice save on the third brake light...you'll have that JK looking as good as the last one, I'm sure..
