Yeah I have a 2.5 in. BB. 32s would be a really tight fit stock.

Like I said it'll be tight. I had 31s on stock suspension and stock wheels. It rubbed bad on full lock. When I put the wheels I have on it now with 3.5 in. back spacing it didn't rub any while turning but was still very cramped.

I have 32s on what I believe is stock height without any rubbing.

Changed transmission oil & transfer case oil. Runs so much smoother now since I've put in the Pennzoil Synchro in her.

I get that here too. I got my Jeep in the winter and believe you me I'll make use of the drop top, even if it means I have to dress like an Eskimo.
Not many people wave around here. Especially the JKU owners (no hate).

I have 33s on my stock everything 97. No rubbing full lock either way. The only rubbing is when i bash it on a hard bump and it barely touches the plastic fender flare. Doesnt come close to the metal fender.

Just thought I would drop by and let you all in on a little thing I stumbled upon today. I am pretty sure there is probably a thread on this but anyhow here it goes. I was trying to come up with a way to polish my turn signal lenses on my 98 TJ and I tried furniture polish and oh my goodness did it do a good job. First I just put some on a soft fiber rag and did it. Then I put a little on a buff wheel for a drill and they came out great. Just thought I would pass along the idea. I know you all like pics so here are a few I didn't take them of before but they were faded and just hazy and here them after about 5 minutes of furniture polish.

Took the doors off for the first time, and I must say it's pretty interesting to drive without doors. Found a lame excuse to go to the grocery store, and received one confused look on the way there lol.
