Big sarge is a great guy. I'm not too far from him either

Never met him in person but I've bought a couple things from him. Great guy. Honest and trustworthy. I wish I loved closer to him.

Been working on the jeep with my son before he leaves for college in 2 weeks.got the speakers in the sound bar,new subs, equalizer and amp installed in the jeep today. Did run the amp power line through the frame rail. Kid thought that was pretty slick. Did the flat black paint, bumpers and fenders, bedlined the interior and custom shift knob this week.
Need to pick up some more butt connectors to neaten up the wiring. The amp is covered by a box I built for it years ago,Got it all installed got to listen for 5 min then the kid took off in it.
6 hours ago.

Went riding down a dirt road that's a couple miles long and encountered a sketchy car stuck in the ditch. Stopped kinda a ways away from them because I was unsure of what they were up to. They put on the caution lights and started walking towards the jeep with hands raised. Before they got any closer I asked if they were stuck and needed to be pulled out, they said yes man, do you have any rope. haha I laughed and said yeah, I got a strap. Turned around and yanked them out. Girlfriend was pissed I stopped, but glad everyone was safe and nobody was hurt. After that got some mud on it to celebrate a good night.

So happy I bought the trail cover! Got it on with seconds to spare. Big rain on its way. The pop up storms are crazy this summer!

Thanks guys (turbostixx,tyback) for all the kind words. Tried to multi quote but it's not working for some reason below one of the previous posts. Uponone is a great guy as well and I really enjoyed helping you out and working on your Jeep with you. Hope you and the misses are happy with it, let me know whenever I can help you out again.

I'll post one up after while! Everywhere I've read said they get louder with time. Right now, above 2k RPMs, it sounds relatively stock. The film stuff burning out of the inside smells like a$$ though...

That does sound good. I was debating whether to go with Magnaflow or Flowmaster and ended up with the Flowmaster.

I have an 03' Jeep Wrangler Sport with a factory lift, what's the biggest size tire I could get without rubbing and still looking good.


Or...


If I get a 4in suspension lift what size tires would look the best?


PLEASE HELP.

If you did a 4 inch I would go with 35s people will argue but it fits perfect look at my pics with my little girl on it. That was a 4" RC with 35s

X2 I would say 35s all day.. I got a 4" on 34s n flat fenders n tires still look to small for me.. Only bad part depending what gear ratio u might have to gear it.

31x10.5 are the biggest tires I'd personally ever run on a no lift TJ with factory fenders. A 4" lift requires much work to be done correctly. What size tires that look the best is the least of your worries. Most people would say/recommend 33x12.5, however.

Biggest tire w/o lift would be 31s....with a 4" lift, you could prolly fit 35s....33s for sure.

X3 or 4, whichever it is on the 35s. That's what I'm putting on in December.

Getting a new tire to replace the one bald one from PO not rotating. Hope to get the other three soon. 35" BFG AT $225 installed not too bad IMO.

Let some Pb blaster soak into it and u can use a closed wrench end to put around the end of the small wrench you're using on the bolts. This will give u more leverage and work like a miniature breaker bar

Should be able to fit 31x10.50's stock, thought you may need to put a spacer on the steering stops to prevent rubbing. Even with a 4" lift I wouldn't go bigger than 33's with the stock axels.

Definitely need a small 1/4" drive ratchet with short 5/16" socket. Get them about half out and you should be able to spin them out with your fingers.
