Never play the lottery but with the 500 million record Mega Millions for tomorrow, I went and bought some tickets

If I win, it might be able to pay for my mods

You have to be 94 years old and only buy 1 ticket in order to win

It is amazing how wheels and tires change the looks, not to mention a little lift. Was surprised that the 285/70/17 which were suppose to be 32.7" tires are actually slightly taller then the 33's are. I had to change the programmer down .5" to get the speedo back to correct speed from where I had it set for the 285's.

But the wider tire for the 33's look awesome. Not to mention the stance.

First impression is that the Duratrac's are a LOT quieter then the Goodyear MT/R's I had on. Also the ride is so much more comfortable. Of course, not sure how much of that is from the tire or the new gas shocks. I have about 200' of gravel driveway to my house and it isn't nearly as bouncy on the rough gravel road. I hope they are at least as close to a trail tire. So far they are a great improvement on road

So what do we have there--19/60s and a TF leveling kit, is that right? Looks great. Love the decals, the top, and obviously the new shoes. Nice work.

I know it's a little early but let us know what you think of the FOX shocks with that set up. Lots of peeps running it now, would be useful to the masses looking at upgrading shocks.

Oh I want some tube doors too. I had the Jeep nekkid today and thought about some cargo style doors every where I went this afternoon. They look really good but they are pretty pricey.
