I did end up with the hydro shocks and they ride kinda rough, but they are only temporary until I can pick up a set of Bilstein 5125's this summer. and I cant go flex out my jeep until IRO sends me my rear DS (currently running the front in the rear) so I can have 4wd.

in other news I have a really pretty mall crawler.

Sweet! 33's look good! But damn those weights though. That's the best they could balance? Did you ask if they tried rotating the tires on the rim 180?

Why wait for IRO? I flex out my jeep all the time in 2WD. And I run a stock front as my rear and has held up fine for years

That looks awesome. Two questions
What brand and size tire? 33 x 12.5 x 15?
How much do they buzz. I have mud terrains in 31 on my XJ and they roar and vibrate like crazy

dude I know, discount tire is seriously the worst place in the world to get tires mounted or balanced but my buddy bought me my rims and paid for mount/balance cause he needed tires so we made a deal and he took my old ones (which were still new).

and yeah I guess I could flex out if I disco'ed the sway bars in 2wd just fine. ill get some pics this week.

they are gladiator mt9000 something or others. I got all 4 for 300 bucks cause I traded some AT's for them (paid 300 for the AT's) and my buddy gave me a 33" spare for free so I could have 5 tires.

either way they are pretty damn quiet and dont really "howl"

now currently I have done my first oil change since Ive owned it after getting a huge scare from buying a ****ty brand oil filter (got one of those oil package deals).
my wix filter got a hair line crack in it some how on thursday and had slowly started leaking oil. I didnt know it was the oil filter at first a d thought forsure my
rear main had blown out comepletly.. one night as a came home almost half a qt of oil was under my jeep when I parked it. ive been watching it and finally figured out it was the oil filter leaking.


also took my XJ out wheeling for fathers day.. sorry ive been going pic happy today haha!

Headed out rain or shine





im always trail leader









most of the trails had a lot of water in them



















all and all it was a great time except that I hate mud! most of the park was real slick but still a ball!
