I've got a 02 TJ with a real big radio I got at Wal-Mart. Will 40" tires fit on the stock rims and suspension? Oh and I got a chrome gas cap too.

I was thinking of adding a K&N filter, do you think that would help.

What about the addition of a Flux Capacitor? I think they still sell them at Radio Shack.

Just make sure your muffler bearings are perfect and your blinker fluid is topped off and you should be ok.

All you have to do to make 40's fit on stock rims is to remove your bottle jack from under the passenger seat. After that everything goes right into place. :D

For the love of god man. Didn't you know that also removing the bottle jack will kick your MPG up to 22 in the city and 25 on the highway? :doh:

I added a "Weiner Dude" to my antenna and got a 1.7mpg increase.

And what about improving the sound quality and engine temp? :rofl: no but really its still in my TJ and needs to come out, too much OT has been limiting my time spent with the addiction.:D

a weiner dude huh? intresting...one of my friends put a "windsock" (wink, wink) on one of our other friends antennas a few weeks ago, he must have drove around for a few days with that thing on before he realized it and took it off, didn't improve mpg but I think that it made my life a little longer due to all the laughing I was doing everytime he came over, wish I would have got a picture of him getting out of his car with that thing on his antenna.

in all seriousness I would leave it in there. Mine is still in there to this day. That bottle jack will still let you change a tire even with 35's on it. Way better than relying on a hi-lift.

guess thats true. but mine seems like its streching it eventhough I have 31's. I don't like to use the highlift unless I really have to anyway, thats what I have a hydro racing jack for :)
