I live just north of Albany, NY. My wife has ALS and I'm the only caretaker so I don't really get any play time at all anymore. Used to spend every weekend in the Adirondacks and grew up wheeling up there. This is my first Wrangler though, the previous two vehicles were a 98 Cherokee and an 87 Comanche. Dad had a '69 Commando that I learned to drive way back when. I bought this as a toy and a sort of "virtual" connection to the woods since I can't really leave the house for more than a couple of hours at a time. Kids like riding around in it too.
I have no trouble believing you paid $3000 for your current setup. As soon as you start hitting 33 or larger the prices just skyrocket. The stock tires are though can be found on sale for less than $150 if you look around and time it right. I don't really need wheels but I'd take them if they made it easier for everyone involved.
If you've still got the stock mud terrains mounted and with the TPMS sensors in the wheels I'd be interested in taking them off your hands. I'm close enough to pick them up. Don't want to spend too much since eventually I plan on a lift and larger tires but for now I'd just like to get some mud tires on my 09 X. I'd be willing to go as high as $600 for the 5 if I don't have to mess with mounting, balancing and new sensors. Thanks,
I recently got a Wrangler X and I am building a trailer for it. Before I pick up some cheap rims what would you be willing to sell your rims and tires for? Any idea how much shipping to Wisconsin would be?
