I just ordered ProComp 33 x 12.50 X-Terrains, Staun internal bead locks (they better work for what they cost!), and black Series 97 rock crawler wheels (15" x 8") for my tj (3 1/2" RE lift)

SWEET! Let me know what you think about the stauns. I've been debating which beadlock route to go and think I want to toss the stauns on some aluminum rims!

I'm looking for something a little less pricey than my last set of bead locks.

What's wrong Andy, you tired of spending 400 or so a wheel for the good stuff. I sure as hell know I would be.

I don't have a credit card. I like that old stuff called CASH!

Jack- It isn't that I don't mind spending that much for wheels. I'm just getting towards the end of my project and I'm already WAAAY over budget. I'm sure I've spent close to 10k since August.

Man, I hear that buddy. That's the main reason I haven't went to beadlocks yet. I want to let my build progression plan itself out more and then drop the change on some top notch wheels. Things like that creep up in a hurry when we aren't paying attention.

Gave it an oil change the other day. Went all out and bought 10w-30 Mobil1 synth and a good oil filter. Put a new personal plate on the front too (home made in the shop).

I did't do anything for the Jeep..... Frank did: started working on the t-case shifters, took 'em out found the "problem", now he just needs to fab a piece re-weld & re-install!

I've been good all week - no whining - couldn't stand it any longer.......dropped a subtle hint this morning about missing my Jeep


and yes, I admit I waved to a Jeep last Monday I couldn't help it - I'm brain washed

I'm starting to think you should have started with a tube chassis.

it isn't my fault certain vendors can't ship out product. I've been waiting for certain parts for over 2.5 months now. It makes a huge difference to have said parts to move forward with this stupid build up.



Oh... I covered my wifes jeep in mud. I was doing 2wd donuts in Dirks pond. I told her she needed to clean it when she got the chance! LOL
