31" BFG's and American Racing Alloys!!!!!!

Here's the story: Ive been working all summer no vacation this year and recently Ive spent money non stop. Well after today Im done. The rims were $100, and the tires NEW were $500, so another $600 hit to my bank account. I just cant do this anymore. Im happy the way she is but thinking about all the money hurts. So the efan will be installed later and same with the intake. They are paid for just not installed. So no more spending. Besided gas .

Anyways heres how she looks with the new tires, rims, and clears from underdog.

Much Better! Looks good! It is always depressing when you think about how much money you spend on your truck, just be glad you didn't spend as much as zabeard!

feels the same, just taller, the 4 banger is doing better then I though, though the odometer is way off, how do I calulate to figure out the right mileage? BESIDES THE TUNER, cant spend money like that right now,, HAD 225/70R15s now have 31x10.5R15s sooo how do I calulate the mileage correctly?

seached several jeep forums for local sellers and found these used off a wrangler,, $100 cash and I picked them up,,

Im not sure if I calculated correctly but for every mile my odometer says Ive gone Ive really gone about 1.12miles,, sound right?
