I have four 33x10.50 BFG muds on wheels for $100, they will probably pass inspection. They have about 20 to 25% tread.

The tires I got have alittle more then 1/4 tread left.

go with ranger rims they have less back spacing to push the tire away from the jeep for clearance.
build it, beat it, break it, fix it, repeat

Hunting season has put a little damper on Jeep activities, but I did use the Rubicon to haul a deer out of the woods this afternoon!  ;D

Very very nice Colli. I'm not sure about the economy but that winch has me going. :o

I'll have to speak with you on some recovery equipment for that winch.  ;D

Your winch is even bigger than mine.   :(    I quit!

Replaced Jenn's r/s axle bearing and put new brake shoes on the rear. I've being procrastinating doing it but it looks like winter finally getting here and I'm not a fan of the cold

Un-spooled the new winch cable and winch pulled the Jeep up through the yard. The winch and I are both ready to go.

I purchased a 4" x 8' tree saver strap....it's a little wide....but it won't break pulling anything we own. 8) I got your tree hugger...right here. 8)

   I took "it" to work and "it" took me home  :)

   O/T: I saw a late model XJ (in the 'Burg) must've had a 6.5" or 8" lift, 35's and EVERYTHING else was stock! Mall Crawler... :-X

Worked on the Willys tub welded up some small holes, cut out the dash and some of the firewall to start repairing some mods that were done that I don't need.
