TRK-n-8-R checking in

TRKn8r here, and I'm new...I've had my 2006 Jeep TJ sport for 2 years. Bought it at 25k miles and now has 85k miles, and still the original Goodyears and OEM shocks. Why am I slipping around on ice?

Figuring I should update it, I just bought the Zone Offroad BB (for starters). The BB was easy to install with the exception of those seized/snapped rear upper shock bolts on the rear passenger side. I broke a few bits and easy-outs in the process, so I ended up cutting the broken bolts out with a dremel and now thinking about how to replace them. Almost there. My solution involves (zone offroad) bar pin eliminators, JB Welding the nuts in place so that I can torque in the BPE, and watching it like a hawk for a while. Any criticism on the JB Weld thing? Let me know what you think.

I'm also looking at 31" or 32" tires on my stock wheels. Any comments on Hankooks? How do the MT's ride? How about the ATM's?

Welcome to WF.

Can't say for sure about the JB, sorry.
