I just bought Mickey Thompson Classic Baja's. I needed them because I wanted wheels with less back spacing so my wheels would stick out a littler farther to avoid rubbing on the lower control arms...

MML is a motor mount lift. It usually goes hand in hand with a body lift so you don't have to mess with the fan shroud. If it has a MML (which it probably does as it looks like this owner is doing...

Here is a video I made when I drilled mine before doing the internal coating and POR-15. This was a couple of days after I finished vacuming out and flushing out the inside of the frame.

I did it and it worked out great. You don't need to take the tub off. You can still reach most parts of the top of the frame. I wouldn't worry about some tiny areas on the top of the frame that you...

Another vote for Fluid Film.

I used Por15 on the outside of my frame and Eastwoods for the inside. Now I just use Fluid Film every couple of months on the frame to keep it protected. Works great

Tires are too big for the gears you have. It will work, but as you've already noticed, it's going to be sluggish. Either go with smaller tires, or re-gear and that will solve that problem.

I know there are many people that will tell you tool or no tool. I just want to give my .02 cents from someone who just installed a BDS 2" Spring/Shock lift a couple of months ago.

You'll be fine with 3.75" backspacing and 10.5" tires. I was using the stock Gambler wheels which I believe are either 5.5 or 5.25" backspacing and I barely made it. 3.75" will be no problem at all...

Thanks guys. I was wondering how the defrost in a Jeep that didn't come with A/C worked. I can live with keeping it bypassed for now. I don't really want to put money into a new compressor when I...

What to do with A/C

I have a 97 Sahara (113k miles) that has A/C. The A/C always worked great, however I never used it (top and doors off in summer). I would turn it on every now and then just to exercise it.

Most likely you will need them with 10.5 wide tires. For the front, 10.5 is fine, you may get a little rubbing at full lock, but that can be fixed with a washer or two on the steering stops.

1 more thing... If you have the stock rear bumper, change it to a nice heavy duty one. Although you may know how to drive in the snow, the heavy duty rear bumper will help when the idiots behind...
