What size were the Maxxis Bighorn wheels you had on there?


Great looking Jeep really makes me want to get mine lifted.

The Moabs do look really sweet! nice choice.

how was the durability of the 8's? I'm thinking about picking up a set.

They never gave me any problems, my only complaint would be since they are steel wheels they were heavy.

Re: WK HEMInKY Build Thread

Just a couple of updates to my thread, over the weekend out of no where my power steering pump went out so I dropped by Oreillys and picked up a new one(pump only) i retained my old pulley, took about 45 minutes total to take off old one, remove old pulley and put on new pump and install, eveything is fine and dandy now.

Now the best part, about 2 weeks ago I somehow stumbled upon a Airaid intake for an 06 Commander on eBay for the Hemi, I did some quick reseach to figure out if if would fit my WK with a Hemi and I could not find any definate answers but everything seemed like it would bolt right up even tho part numbers for the 2 different intake kits were different. By the way it was a full Airaid CAI kit, i got a notificaton auction was ending in 15 minutes the price was a STEAL so i figured Id go ahead and take a chance on it and if it didnt fit I could find someone locally to resale it too. So in the end I got it in the mail about 5 days after paying for item, the guy actually paid $36 to have it shipped to me bc his wife forgot to mail it and he didnt want me to hurt his feedback so he paid more then the originally quoted price for shipping. Everything bolted/hooked up with out any problems or misfits, it sounds AMAZING and was in great condition but the best part of all, I ONLY paid $34, including shipping, for it. Can't beat that!

Re: WK HEMInKY Build Thread

That's a deal!

Question: When you were at stock height with the soft 8's, did you have any rubbing issues? What is your tire size? Thanks.

They were 245/60/17, and no I never had any rubbing, but to be fair I never flexed my jeep either to that point. But I have seen people on here with bigger tires on stock height and no rubbing issues, just search and you'll find more info
