I am getting Tires wheels and a lift for Christmas

My wife called me in today for a "Serious Talk" She basicly demanded that I get a new set of tires a lift and set of rims if we can afford them. After I picked my jaw up off the floor I agreed.

So I ordered rims and 3"lift. Having problems finding Bfg MT's for a decent price. Once I find them I will order them.. should have everything here by Christmass. Sweet aint it.... [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: I am getting Tires wheels and a lift for Christmas

She says if I keep working all the overtime I have, that she will agree to either a winch or lockers before the bash,, I AM LUCKY>.....

Andy I am getting a Rusty's lift.. After allot of research I found most of the 3" springs come from the same manuf with the exception of ome... I got the us wheel crome directionals. and am trying to find a good price on Bfg 32-11.50s

Before you flame me for the crome, it was a condition of the deal. She says that the jeep looks PLAIN. Although I explained the finer points of being able to spray paint the nicks out of them, I still lost.

Re: I am getting Tires wheels and a lift for Christmas

The first thing that ran through my head was What did I do??

after 3 nights of Christmas parties, 2 of the 3 involved mass quantities of wild turkey, I figured I had said something that did not sit well with her. I almost did not believe her.

Hopefully It will go smooth. I have read about the install for the lift and it seems straight forward. Just time consuming. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: I am getting Tires wheels and a lift for Christmas

Thought I would give you an FYI but there is a guy over on the Jeepsunlimited forums selling a set 4" procomp front springs and a set of $" tera rear springs for like 150 bucks. Might be a way to go. Remember you dont need a dropped pitnam arm for a TJ lift until you get to the 5" mark. Also I would look into an adjustable front track bar as well.

Wish I would have caught that on ju, I must have missed it. The lift is already in the mail, as are the Rims, only thing up in the air is the tires.
