I'm with you. I'm not building a rolling billboard and we aren't being paid to advertise. Plus they are holes and not just a decal or stamped.

Otherwise I'd place an order, it looks good and...

I'm running 5.5" backspacing with 33" tires. It's a perfect fit. 285/70r17 on 8.5" wheels. All stock and no rubbing in any situation.

The width of the tire is not the only consideration, it's the...

You'll have to clean it up and measure it with a micrometer. If It's discolored or has grooves you can feel, it will have to be ground.

Is it only one bearing? How did you do it?

Better deal on Sirius?

My one year deal will be up soon and I'm wondering if I can cut a better deal than the usual $12. or so per month? What have you guys done?

It has grown on me and I'd like to renew it.

Thanks

It will make the tires wear faster and it will jerk around a bit at low speeds with sharp turns, like maneuvering in a parking lot, but it won't damage your Jeep.

On the highway you might not...

Just wondering if you will have any trouble keeping it licensed with a different engine than stock?. Do they do inspections and smog checks in your neck of the woods?

The e-brake will hold it if you pull hard enough. I just don't like that it's all we have. Compression is not park or locked. If you really want to hold it by putting it in gear, shift to 4 Low...

Drive it and enjoy it. If you have no idea what to change, maybe it's just right the way it is.

Once you see a problem or a need, there you go, that is what to change first.
