Hawaii5O I bought some rear lower shock mounts there (they had them in stock) and I got charged a "freight fee". WTF?

damtareese I'm born and raised here, so kind of used to it, hate it when all websites say free shipping, applies only to the lower 48...I bought a couple of bolt on parts from 4 wheel parts in waipahu, it's free shipping but delivery date is pending on when their container comes in, I got my air cleaner less than 2 weeks, but my exhaust took like 6 weeks, so it's hit n miss with them,

Hawaii5O Everything is expensive here. Sucks!

damtareese Nope, haven't checked out maui off road yet,I just heard they expensive, but they do have some nice rigs riding around the island, looks like I'll be spending some,$$&&&...dam, no getting around that

Hawaii5O I'm in a 91 YJ on a small lift and 33's. Looking to change the lift up.

Hawaii5O Honestly I'm not up on wheeling in the sand. I would assume the tires would play the biggest part. Have you talked to the guys at Maui Off Road? I know they build a good amount of sand rigs.

damtareese I got a 95 yj.....Im assuming the amount of lift and spacing is dependant on high n wide my tires are, any suggestions for wheeling in the sand, nothing to extreme, I'm on a budget
01-26-2014 12:55 PM
Hawaii5O What model do you have? YJ? TJ? Depends on how much clearance you have. More than likely you'd need a lift and some wider wheels with adjusted back spacing.

RedSurveyor Don't do much sand running in my neck of the woods. Depending how serious you ate about it though... I really think the 31's should treat you good at least until you wear them out. ??

damtareese Hey guys thanks, for the longest I thought this forum was dead!!! Like i stated before kind of new to the jeep scene, mostly want to use it for the beach. So I figured out for wheeling in the sand you need wider tires for more air to help you any of you know what kind of mods (lift kits, bigger shocks) need to be done before putting on wider tires...oh yeah right now, I'm running, 31x10.5x15 and not much of a wrench

RedSurveyor Welcome guys. And congratulations!! Life as you know it is about to change forever. Haha.
Have fun, be safe and check in on this forum frequently. There's a lot of folks on here that know their stuff. I'm always amazed how much these guys know and how much they want to help each other.
