Re: New Tires on today

Apparently I am missing the lug wrench for my spare tire kit. WFT!?!? Glad I found this out this way rather than on the side of a road somewhere. I just need to purchase a lug wrench.

All of my HVAC lights went out, those are the only ones I would like to have fixed. How difficult is it to remove and re-install?

Would you replace all those lights with LED's?

How long...

OME Spring with Bilstein Shocks/Struts

I have bilstein's all the way around and was wondering if I could run the OME Coil Springs with the bilstein's i have now.

Has anyone done this? How much lift did you get?

Thanks.

Re: Spare tire question

I saw the thread, I will not be doing the hitch modification. Therefore, what is the max tire size that will fit in the spare?

Re: need new tires... what do you recommend?

Will the 245/70/17s fit in the spare? I have a hitch as well. I'm looking to get 5 tires soon and don't want to do any hitch mods.

Bilstein's and Rough Country wheel spacers

my WK is getting the Bilstein HD's today along with the wheel spacers. Once my tires run out, its time for the 2' lift and tires. From what i've read, the ride should change for the better.

Re: New from State College, PA

Thanks for the reply. Due to funds, I'm looking into the bilstein's plus the 2" rough country lift. Did you get all the parts at Truck Stuff? Or did you buy it elsewhere and have them install?
