Yea, I'm paid off, and I got 4.88 gears with 35's...so I'm about 15mpg avg..sometimes 17-18 if I'm mostly hwy though.

I want to go 37's because it will even out my gear ratio...I'm a little high with 4.88's

I know, I saw it in person once. Not planned, just happened to be at the beach on the same day.

Soon there will be a red Mazda just like it

I like white trucks on black rims. If I had it to do over again I would have gotten 20's or even atleast 18" rims, even though it would have been more $$$.

yeah. i was thinking black rims too. my buddy has black american racing wheels on his '94 YJ. i might buy them off of him when he gets rid of the jeep. 20's on 37's would be REDICULOUS.

Yea, I've about had it with these alum wheels...I'm about to get black rock crawlers again...I had 15x8's, I want 15x10's.

I'm still undecided on tires...I wish I could find a good deal on some 37's for a 15" rim...I like the baja claws...ssr's...and dick cepeks. I like the DC bc it's an all terrain, but I'd even go w/ a bogger...my truck rides rough anyway!
