I'm looking at getting some wheels that will carry 33 x 12.5" m/t's. The last I knew, pro comp sold their cheaper wheels with less than 3.75" backspacing. I looked on their site and they are...

So after removing the old bedliner I had a bit of an elbow injury, so I took a break. It is a slow project right? Just finishing up by replacing the rot on the "new" tub. Needs reinforcing where the...

This is so true, I get to use his shop for everything, oil changes on my vehicles take 5 minutes... even the little things become nothing when you have a lift.

Also, now that we moved where the engine mounts, I have about 1.25" of play on the front driveshaft, so it's not stuffed anymore. And from the front of the frame to the nut on the radiator fan...

Well then, relocated the mounts and got a new skid plate. We are still wondering what happened here, but all is well. I measured my buddies' frame and my mounts were indeed about 1.25" too far...

That's what I originally thought before I started this project. Now I'm not so sure. I measured over and over because I couldn't believe it, but my passenger side mount on this frame is too far...

I'm thinking when they changed the engines somewhere around 90 maybe they also changed the brackets on the engine. So for example lets say this frame is from before 90. If I find the brackets that...

Something else that I didn't think of, are the engine brackets different on a 95 compared to an 97 through 90?

I think they both need to go back just a couple of inches, the passenger side needs to go back a little more for everything to be straight. Good point on being careful with the amount of space...

Interesting. I'd imagine that it shouldn't be installed fully compressed even if I could get it in there, it would be able to move around when I hit bumps, would that cause a problem? Do you think I...

Problem with engine mounts.

This frame is from a yj, unknown year and supposedly from a 4 cylinder. It can't be from a 6 cylinder because the engine mounts aren't close enough to the shock mounts.

The one difference that I...

I'm planning to go with 3.0 to 3.5 backspacing, 33x12.5, and flat fenders. I'm know I'm being pretty specific here, so anything close to that is good. I like the look of the flat fenders, but I think...
