    Re: Sneek peak............

    ah the hell with it... more driveway shots... why break my tradition /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    [​IMG] wheel paint, 2 coats of silver and two coats of clear

    [​IMG] wheels painted

    [​IMG] halfway done

    /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif here are the 35"x12.5"x15" Goodyear Wrangler MTR's /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
    [​IMG]
    DONE! Need to wash the blue off still /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
    Plunty of room for 37's even turning and things I think 37's would fit no problem! /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Not as much difference in the 32" wranger AT/S's and the 35" MTR's.... and I was a little worried I'd have to nip the fenders /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    As soon as the first front tire went on I almost called sears to see about swapping for some 37's but I guess I have enough room to 'play' with these. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Looks good /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif I thought the spray paint was to cover up the blue stuff /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif till I saw the rims.

    It was going to get 37" MTR's for Rusty but I'm leaning toward some 39.5"x13.5 Iroks now.
    With as much as I have trimmed on that truck they should fit! /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    just cause they don't carry them doesn't mean they can't get them.

    Yep, they have the 37's in the computers.. he gave me a price on those too like 221 I think (dont forget your 4wheel parts mag they match prices and give you 10% off with your sears card).
    I went in on Thursday and they had the 35's on Monday, mounted balanced Tuesday.
    I priced the 35" AT/S it was $169, then he said all they could get where the MTR's and they where 206... I asked if he would give me the MTR's for the AT/S price and he said no, so I started to walk away and he said, hey how about I split the difference with ya... /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif I turned around and asked what that would be and he punched it up for $187 each (plus my 10% off for the sears card). So I didn't have them pricematch the 189 from the magazine pricing.

    Re: Sneek peak............

    here's the stages

    1995 before
    [​IMG]

    after body work and paint, 1" body lift
    [​IMG]

    4spring 4" BDS lift, ORD shackles front, greasable everything, sway bar disconnects, zerorates in the rear (need 2" zerorate blocks instead)
    [​IMG]

    35" MTR's, no sway bar, ford towers and gabrial shocks
    [​IMG]

    I haven't swayed much from my first post here, 4" lift and 35's to run on the highway, no hacking /forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    but I did buy Rusty to do all that other stuff too
    [​IMG]

    this summer 4" front springs, zerorate 1" forward, 56" rear springs rear axle 3" back, echobit flip and longer shackles, 10bolt 5.13 front lockright milemarker lockouts, 14boltFF 5.13's welded diff, 39" iroks

    (still need the 14bolt spring plates and ubolts, front spring bushings (I want to try rubber ones /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif), and the Iroks /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif)
