I agree. 33s are the sweet spot* for these old guys IMO.
*with power steering
I would put those tires on your slotted mags, and run it!
Those rims are growing on me...give them some time...love the jeep!
Damn, Mine needs 33's now.
Got the clearance...
The 33's fit your jeep good but those wheels just dont look right. Have you concidered running 33" all terrains on the slots and 33" with a more aggressive tread on the steel wheels. Just make sure they clear the body when its flexed out
I am leaning toward sticking the 33x10.5 on either my 7" steel wheels or 8" chrome wheels. I just need to see what the offsets look like. Then I could hopefully talk someone into buying these wheels from me.
Starting to make my off season repairs list.
First up will be a new drag link. Good thing I bought the taps to make these things at home! With all the suspension and steering upgrades over the years I'm getting good at whipping these things out.
At least this is the first time that I have had to make a new drag link due to damage........ probably won't be the last either...
This happened right at the bottom of big sluice on the Rubicon trip this past summer. The jeep still drives fine but the steering wheel is a little off center.....
One plus for me .... my local steel supplier has tons of rem's in the exact tubing needed!
Finally got around to making a new tie rod. Once you tap these in a lathe, you will wonder how you ever did them by hand.
Trued up the end.
When it comes to rattle can paint this is the best stuff hands down. Essentially Rustoleum oil based enamel in a spray can. Takes a bit to dry, but one light coat easily covers.
Now I just have to make myself install it......
Nothing to do yesterday with the power out.... Installed the new tie rod.
A long time ago I picked up some fancy prothane grease boots. Very nice fit, we will see how long they last...
I ordered Brennan's MC2100 fuel bowl kit. I currently am happy with my carb off road but he says this will make me like it more.... Now I'm playing the waiting game!
Autolite Motorcraft 2100/2150 Carburetor Fuel Bowl Kit
The best thing I ever did on the 2100 on my truck was to connect those two vents with a piece of copper tubing (soldered in, like an upside down U) and drill a few holes in the top center. I swear that thing would purr at any angle.
I’m curious to see what kind of difference you notice.
