One of the wheels was bent? I thought this guy said the wheels/tires were all true and straight. It looks like he compensated you though, tire/wheel and gas wise. Not a perfect situation, but I hope you came out ahead anyway.

yeah he only ran the wheels for a week before he got sick of the loud claws, but he only used them for off road so he didnt notice the one wheel was bent a little and could not be balanced. He just bought them from a guy in CDA too and never realized the bend in the one when he was driving. It sucked i didnt get the 15x8 but i ended up ahead since he compensated for my gas. The 15x10's are only 2 1/2 months old too and are actually nicer then the others. Along with the baja claws being way to loud on the road, im thoroughly glad i got to keep his hankook dynapro MT.

haha yeah. I told the guy " i came all the way here for black wheels, Im leaving with black wheels". He understood and told me that he will take his wheels off and give them to me. But oddly enough, he loved the chrome wheels and they actually looked good on a black jeep. Those things were awful lol

So this thread should be called " The Spokane/CDA Area containment thread" instead of "Spokane/CDA Area monthly meets". Just a thought lol

Anyone running 4.88 with 33's locally? Yukon is on back order for 4.56 and I'm having my gears done wed.

Other then yukon (if I don't go with 488) what's another good company to go with?

That Jeep looks pretty sick....but it is a yj lol

You can always put a deposit down on it, and then pay the rest when the return comes in if you decide it's the Jeep for you

Agreed. I don't know if you're from the PNW, wmpiehl, but I'd be sorely surprised to find a TJ with less miles in as good a shape as that YJ for less. Jeeps are expensive up here. It might be a little high for that year of YJ, but for the shape it's in it's reasonable. A comparable TJ would easily be more.

Lol thanks for havin my back!

Honestly I like the look of YJs, I dont see too many of them around vs TJs and JKs. If i were to get a TJ i'd baby it way too much.

YJ love

Also, i'm guestimating but is that about a 4 inch body lift?
