Sorry...

forgot the specs on them...

Tires are 32x11.5x15 Falken Rocky Mountain ATS's (identical to wild peaks) and the rims are 15x8 Mickey Thompson Limited Edition Signature Series...

Absolutely LOVE the tread pattern on these and i'm glad i waited a week to do the lift and tires so i could get these instead of my second choice BFG AT/TA's

next up just gotta get the black lugs ordered and put on...

So... you sleeping with the tire in your room tonight, or do you think you can let it stay out in the garage?

Let's be honest here... we ALL know that there are few things that smell as wonderful as new tires!

I've actually got it locked in the back of the jeep at the moment lol..that way i can smell it when i get in tomorrow morning for work haha

the remaining 4 get here tomorrow and i've already taped the "please leave package on step" note to the door...

I even brought the tire inside, cleaned it, and took the tape and stickers off...

It wasnt this time, but is it bad that i've hugged the delivery driver before???

Hi, my name is Matt and i have a problem...

My UPS driver has gotten so that he SNEAKS down the gravel driveway, puts the packages by the garage door, gets his truck turned around and in forward motion THEN honks the horn so I can't catch him before he gets away!!

The big sissy, afraid of a little old lady, sheesh.

haha...well good deal, i dont feel left out then!!!

My new driver here in denver is kind of a sissy though...he didnt even bring the tire up to me today. Just left it in the truck! I only live on the 2nd floor!!

So i went down and took it out of his truck for him lol...

i just need to not think about the stuff in the jeep though because i still have 3.5 days left!!!

Ahhhhhhhhhh!
The smell of new Jeep shoes, first thing in the morning.
Breathe it in... nice and deep. Isn't it wonderful?
Makes you daydream, list a little bit... doesn't it.

Mmmmmm deep breath.....
REFRESHING, titillating, invigorating, inviting..... FRUSTRATING!!!

Oh yea, you only have ONE so far... my bad!

Only THREE days to go!

No problem...

And thanks man, i love the tires...i love the tread pattern and definitely glad i postponed the lift for a week so i could get these delivered.

The tires were $655 shipped from discounttire. They are Falken Rocky Mountain ATS's and they're 32x11.5x15

I'm going to have someone put the lift on for me. I dont have enough time to crack it out at the moment since this is my daily driver so i wouldnt be able to to "take my time". So i met a guy that works at the Jeep dealer here in Denver and hes going to do the lift, mount and balance, alignment, and a quick oil change for 200 bucks which is well worth it to me.

The lift was 460 shipped and i'm putting on a 3" Zone Offroad suspension lift.

I'll be sure to post more pics but no problem askin questions haha...i'm more than happy to talk about it!!!!!

2.5 days left...cant wait

Yeah, i just got mine a few months ago as well...

i moved from west des moines, IA to Denver, CO so i bought the wrangler since i needed a new vehicle anyway!

Next up on the list is a tranny rebuild (my 2nd gear syncro is goin out) and a catalytic converter...nothin big at the moment!

I pretty much just pulled the trigger on this...i was gonna wait awhile to do the lift and tires but really wanted them so figured why not haha

Definitely not a bad deal for everything though...

Mines a 99...picked it up with 63k on the clock a few months ago and now about to turn over 71.

I'm not sure what it could be since i've got the 2.5L...i remember reading about a common knock in the 4.0's but it isnt anything you should worry about. Heres a quick thread i pulled up, i didnt read it though but the first post is identical to what you said...

2006 Wrangler, slight knocking issues Wrangler - Car Questions, Answers, and Discussion

I'm not lookin to go crazy on her...just a tasteful build. Hopefully the lift and tires are a good combo, i've thought and planned this for the last 6 months and finally pulled the trigger on what i wanted so we'll see on saturday!

Good luck with your build though...

Absolutely LOVE it...

The ride is amazing and is tons better than what the stock shocks/springs gave me...

the tires are quiet as well which is nice but my favorite thing is the overall clean look. Its not "huge" but it has a nice lift to it.

I love the look of the 32 on there and like the gap i have with this setup...

Completely happy...

i have zero vibrations from it as well...i've run it on the highway as well and holds just fine.

love it love it love it lol...

Tomorrow i'll wash and wax her and see if i can get a few nicer pics taken!
