How do the tie rod ends, and drag link ends look like? If you see nothing wrong pop the diff cover see if anything is out of place, also pop the cover off the cad and see if everything is ok.

I replaced the lower steering column bearing using a great write-up from the forum. My bearing was toast and it is the first step to some new steering parts for old recycled. Great write-up

If the tread was I little better, still nice deal for a set of rims, might be able to get the price down some cause of the tires

im sure he posted higher than his taking price, around here the rims would be worth 150.00.. if there is,nt any damage,,i would want to see the 2 he is,nt showing-- offer him like 130 and go from there.--just a thought...

i use to sell alot of great used tire,s on c.l. at low,low prices...found out i did better when i raised the price,s and let people knock me down a little---they thought they got a better deal i guess----

goodluck

Did this over the weekend. Trail went from about 1ft deep to super deep without warning. It sunk another 3-4" after this pic before I could get it out. Took about 3-4 hours to get out. I dont have a winch but wasnt worried that day since a friend was with me in his lifted Cherokee with Swampers. Well, that didnt do *^($. I was hitting reverse while he pulled full force and I couldnt even feel him pull. I got about 8" of lift on my Jeep with 31's and the tires werent even touching the ground. Ruts were horrible. In the end I went to harbor freight and grabbed an 8,000lb come-along and pulled it out with that. Was a good day. Thats my buddy standing in the Jeep. LOL

Yes those look like American racing and the you might be able to find the backpacking on the back of the wheels some wheels have it stamped on the back of it so ask him about it. What kind of back spacing are you looking to get?

I'm not 100% about what backspacing is but I wanna clean 31x10.50 without rubbing when I get my 2.5 lift but the guy turned around and said I insulted him with his offer

OK what do you mean stuck? Does the shifter go back to 4WH and 2WD?
Do you mean that the 4WD light is always on?
More info please but it sounds like you popped a vacume line off.
