The infamous "Im Getting Tires and Rims Thread"

blah blah blah tires blah blah blah rims. I have #1 stock torsion bars and rear shackle lift brackets (the lift shackles are not installed yet) I want to buy a 3" PA body lift with the shifter extension and cant find a place thats repeatable to buy from. I plan on getting 33x12.5x15 BFG AT KO's from Summit and Cragar Soft 8's 15x8 with 4" back spacing. I had good luck with my 31's on my 2wd so Im gonna go with those tires. I know I want that set up for tires and rims. I wanted to know how bad your 4.0 4x4 is guzzling gas since the switch. Im averaging 260 miles per tank on 4.10's with stock Wrangler 255/70/16 putting around in 5th most of the time in the city with the occasional highway driving. Any Help? If you got Pics of the 3 BL with 33x12.5x15 with 15x8 Cragar rims please post as well. Thanks guys/girls. Any idea where i can pick up a set of Ford center caps?

2006 XLT, 4.0 SOHC, Twin stick, 3" BL with AAL On 35x12.5x15 BFG AT's w/ T-bar crank and camber kit, Sport Trac Power Seats with Expo center console and OHC, 4 Custom Hella's on OEM switch, 2010 FX4 Fender Flares

Personally, If you are worried about gas mileage, dont get 33's and soft 8's. If you can splerg the dough, get an aluminum rim, they are alot lighter.

and X2 on
