    Picked up my early x-mas present (with install pic's)

    I got my early Christmas present yesterday :D Well it's kinda a Christmas present even though it's to me from me. Now all I need is my body lift which my girlfriend is holding on to until the 23rd :(

    Thanks. Right now I just got the ones that come with the wheels (exposed lugs). But when I got the money I'm gonna buy the caps for the hidden lugs, like in the pic below.

    The threads look pretty aggressive. Do they make a lot of noise in the highway?

    VERY NICE!

    Why cant you put them on without the body lift? I was rolling on my 32's with no lift at all for a little while, just a little trimming to discourage the rubbing... now with TT and shackles I no longer have the rubbing problem..

    Thanks. I got a '99 Limited so my front bumper is different than yours and it will rub there if I flex any while I turn and the front of my runningboards rub when I turn and I don't really wanna trim them. If I gotta trim stuff after I do my BL I will, but not if I don't have to. But I'm putting my lift on Thursday after work anyway so that'll give me time to clean my tires (they are used) and polish my rims before I put them on :)

    Bah you don't need the body lift first! The rubbing with 32's at stock height isn't THAT bad! :D

    EDIT: Just realized you aren't stock height, slap them bad boys on there, They look good!

    The cooper tires get loud after they are worn a little but they are some good tires though. Did you buy those tires news because I was told that cooper no longer made those tires.

    They still show the old STT's as well as the new STT's on Cooper's website. It seems that the new STT's don't have all of the sizes yet. They shouldn't discontinue them until they include all the sizes in the new style.
