Bump up for new wheels/tires.

Couldn't help buying some 33's off clist. Got a set of 33x1250 yoko AT's with 80% tread left on 15x10 eagle alloy wheels for $325.

I'm running them now with my stock 4.10's and I have to say it's not that bad. The only thing is that 5th gear is no longer there on the highway. Next is a regear for sure though.

hey tat, shackles went on like a breeze. they caused a little bumpsteer but nothing i can't get used to. now all i have to do is get the thing aligned and i'm set.

RSC,

Thanks for the update! I want to try out some 33's now that I see
your Jeep. Lookin good. I am going to trim my flares and get some
33x10.50" BFG M/T's when I get the coin. Gunna try and sell the tires
on there now. I think I will need the schakles though to make it work.

Thanks again,

T

yeah, you will probably need more lift somehow. BL or shackle lift. Post up when you cut your fender flares.

You'll have to order it from a steel company, I don't think Home Depot carries such heavy steel. I used steel from the shop I work at during the summer.

Hey beautiful Jeep! How are those tires wearing? I'm still in high school so I'm tight on money as well, and I'm looking for a tire with on road and off road capabilities and good wearing characteristics. I know my dad's BF Goodrich All Terrains on his truck got 90,000 miles before he replaced them.

Thanks!

They were wearing pretty well. Only had them on for about 5,000 miles. I have my 33's on now.

Installed my new pro-comp bumper and tinted the lights all the way around.

Pardon the bad cell phone pictures.

I just used VHT on the outside of the lense and cleared over them. I did as many coats as it took to get them black. To tell you the truth the front blinkers are too dark, you hardly can see them in the day time. I'm surprised that I haven't gotten pulled over for them yet. If you're going to do them, I'd advise to go a little lighter than I did.

You don't have to clear them but if you do they'll last a helluva lot longer.

After I mount my winch, I'm pretty set. nothing really left to do except beef up the axles or drop a new motor in it, or i guess go higher.....hmmmmm.
