jeep questions (tires/gears/seats/diamondplate)
Ok, i'm sorry....i do ask too many stupid questions...but, this is by far the largest wealth of jeep knowledge probably in the world....here goes
I've got a set of 33" Michelin LTX A/T's, 4 of 'em, that i traded some stuff for...anyway, i was just curious to opinions on these babies, biggest concern being snow, and maybe mud, i know they'll suck, but as bad as BFG A/T's? sidewall strength? i know they were expensive as hell, so they better be worth it...
What's the lowest ratio I can go with a stock carrier? I think i've got 3.31's, and they just won't be cuttin it with the 33's, so i'm lookin at 3:73's, right? what about 3:91's? will they work? And what about the stock trac-loc? where do you buy rebuild kit's for these thingys, and just how are they compared to say, a GM gov-loc? i just don't wanna dump a whole bunch of money in these stupid 1/4 ton axles that are gonna get removed and upgraded. and before i jump into hardcore lockers and ultra-low gears, i figure i'll improve on my driving skill.
3) Tire carrier
can the stock one handle a 33" tire? what about a 33x9.5 one instead of the 12.50 ones i got? i don't want the thing to rip the ass end of my jeep out...
looking around for seats, interested in a set of older pontiac fiero ones with the speakers built in the headrests...good idea? what if it rains? am i gonna get electricuted? any other seats recommended? i know there's at least one person who has these in their jeep on this board...
5) Diamond Plate corners and Rockers
Any one make their own diamond plate stuff?? like i could just go buy it, but that's no fun, and i do have access to sheet metal stuff (brakes, shear, etc) so, i was just wondering anybody have some experiance with this stuff? i'm alright with metal, so i figure corners shouldn't be much of an issue
that's all i can think of, these are just simple questions to give me an idea of what i've got/got to do/etc. So, any help to any of these questions would be more than appreciated..Thanx!!
