Bought the wheels first. Wasn't planning on changing right away but couldn't help myself.

Never play the lottery but with the 500 million record Mega Millions for tomorrow, I went and bought some tickets

If I win, it might be able to pay for my mods

You have to be 94 years old and only buy 1 ticket in order to win :)

Oh..... And be rich already

dabolt55 03-29-2012 11:55 AM

Looks really good rics, I know your happy that it's all come together now. Time to sell those old clunkers! :thumb:

stryke-force 03-30-2012 05:48 PM

Looks good. I have the same wheels.

rics1997 03-30-2012 06:00 PM

It is amazing how wheels and tires change the looks, not to mention a little lift. Was surprised that the 285/70/17 which were suppose to be 32.7" tires are actually slightly taller then the 33's are. I had to change the programmer down .5" to get the speedo back to correct speed from where I had it set for the 285's.

But the wider tire for the 33's look awesome. Not to mention the stance.

First impression is that the Duratrac's are a LOT quieter then the Goodyear MT/R's I had on. Also the ride is so much more comfortable. Of course, not sure how much of that is from the tire or the new gas shocks. I have about 200' of gravel driveway to my house and it isn't nearly as bouncy on the rough gravel road. I hope they are at least as close to a trail tire. So far they are a great improvement on road

Amazing what new shoes do for a Wrangler, isn't it? :punk:

mgola27 03-30-2012 08:11 PM

Looks good, rics.

MTH 03-30-2012 08:18 PM

So what do we have there--19/60s and a TF leveling kit, is that right? Looks great. Love the decals, the top, and obviously the new shoes. Nice work. :thumb:

RedBones 03-30-2012 08:18 PM

Looks good.
Very nice.

CG3 03-30-2012 08:25 PM

I your ♥ jeep :thumb:

rics1997 03-30-2012 08:27 PM

Right, 19/60 and the Teraflex 2" front 1" rear spacers. I am sitting 3 1/4" higher then stock up front and a little over 2 1/2" in rear

Red Headed Coonazz 03-30-2012 08:27 PM

Very nice. Thats very simular to the look I want when these Toyos wear out. Just not sure on what size yet.

rics1997 03-30-2012 08:35 PM

A lot different from the day i bought it in 2010

I know it's a little early but let us know what you think of the FOX shocks with that set up. Lots of peeps running it now, would be useful to the masses looking at upgrading shocks.

MTH 03-30-2012 08:41 PM

I'm thinking side steps are next on the "upgrade" block. Just sayin'. :whistling:

ESP 03-30-2012 08:45 PM

Sliders maybe MTH? Just make sure they don't send you the same package they sent him! :rofl:

Was just saying that to the guy at the shop today lol. That and tube doors for the summer.

ESP 03-30-2012 08:52 PM

Oh I want some tube doors too. I had the Jeep nekkid today and thought about some cargo style doors every where I went this afternoon. They look really good but they are pretty pricey.
