FINALLY! I got her back

Well my poor jeep was lifeless for a little bit. it was parked out front of my grandpaws shop waiting to get the new front control arm brackets welded on. anyways while it was out front of the shop over the weekend about 3 weeks ago some jackass stole my wheels and brand new 33 12.5 x 15 buckshots. But long story short shes back in action! ive got pics for you guys, here they are.

OMG that sucks... did you have locking lugs? Just wondering how affective they really are... I like your new rims, they look like mine from Summit Racing.

well you dont need to invest in them if you got new wheels and tires out of it :P JK it sounds like a good idea. I actualy need new lugs anyways so after this story I will look into it too. that is crap that they took the stuff though. I would have flipped out. glad you got it all worked out tho bro!

replace speedo gears, you can get them anywhere from free to 30 bucks, some are expensive I have heard but not really. check online or a dealer. mines off over 15 I just know how fast I am going, dont really think about it Im used to it now.

Looking good, bummer about the old wheels though.

Locking lugs only prevent the armature thief from getting your wheels. The good thieves have a tool they buy off a snap on truck for 54 bucks that takes off any locking lug nut and fits on the end of a cordless impact, In less then a minute you can have all five locking lugs off.

I had my pops check me exactly yesterday. I was holding on 30 and he was doing 45. haha. at highway speeds I only need to hit about 45-50 and im doing near 70. like I said look at some speedo gears, they are easy to change out from what Ive read.
