    If your name is dot and you like them, then you must approve of them...:rolleyes: All joking aside I do not believe that they are anymore... I haven't wheeled them yet, but before the locks I used to run 14psi, I changed my tire deflators down to 8psi and will go from there... No there...

    I didn't know where to put this, so I figure why not here... So It only took me 3 months to get them finished and installed...after many frustrating hours, hundreds of bolts, plenty of welding....they are finally done! Bad Pics, but none the less... Ta DA!!! BEADLOCKS!

    Yes 35's are bigger and will give you more ground clearance, yes they are bigger and will put more stress on parts...

    Looking to do a run November 7th

    I Want More! Add a Leaf?

    A body lift seems like a big task, but its really not once you get into to takes a bit of time not because it is hard and you need lots of tools and knowledge...but because it is just a lot of little things that add up "easy work just lots of it" If you have a socket set, a jack or...

    weird noise at start up?

    I am going to guess that you have the 4.0L is a very common problem to have the timing chain tensioner on those engines go, which could be the cause of the problem, yes replacing it or having someone do it is not the cheapest, but if your timing goes can go down hill quickly...
