Wow, holy thread revival batman!
So, I totally forgot I signed up to this forum, which I feel guilty about, and only remembered because when I tried to register my SN, it said it was already in use.
Anyway, surprisingly, I followed through with my decision to buy a jeep a month after I started this thread and I wanted to update everyone on what happened.
I ended up going with a 99 WJ Limited V8, here she is when I brought her home. Ugly as eff. haha.
Fast forward about 8 months when I finally
got around to buying new tires, (i was running 3 different sets which came with the car .. ended up going with Hankook Dynapro AT/M RF10 tires, 245/75/16). Once I threw the tires on, the bug bit me hard and I ended up painting the rims black and buying a 2" BB for a better stance.
stock height with new tires and painted rims
2" BB with same tires
So then, I did some calculations and noticed that my 245/75's (30.5") tires were kind of bland on a 2" BB .. So, I called discount tire, asked them that since I was still within my 30 days if I could swap out to bigger tires .. Lo and behold, 32's cost the exact same as my 30.5's and I made the switch because it would "fit".
Now, that I've moved to 32's, they're a little bit big for a 2" BB .. whatever .. 4" lift is being priced out and purchased one by one as we speak.
Anyway, future plans for the WJ are:
- 4" Long Arm Kit
- rock sliders
- new bumpers
- armor for T/C and differentials
- random misc shit here and there.
I'm excited to be a resident post whore here and will annoy a lot of you with random posts, and misc shit. I've met some great friends on forums (jeep and motorcycle forums) so I'm sure I'll meet a few other knuckleheads here.
