not really a body lift fan, would rather superlift or LT, so probably wont lift it haha. If I ever plan on using it, I'll SAS but priority would be on a v8 swap first. And none of that will happen for at least a few years.

I can fit 32s stock, if I do coilovers that should help as well. If I go 31s or 32s depends on if I want to spend the extra and deal with mpg loss. my stock tires are 30" OD.

we'll see...

since we're on to wheels... I'll probably keep a 16, or maybe a 17.

I like these level 8 wheels, not sure if i want black, machined, or a bit of both.






also american outlaw buckshot in black


in a 17, i like the black rhino rockwell. the level 8 wheels are also available in 17.

Never heard of them. I like the wheels you posted. The 5/10 star ones with black face, machined lip are my favorite

Hard to argue with this price. Pretty good looking tire too, similar to the zeon ltz.

but again, i'm just throwing things out, I'm not really set up for a new wheel/tire combo right now. it's fun to look.

Cooper ltz is what I have on the yellow truck. They pretty much suck. 2wd on wet grass, had to lock in. They are nice on the road though.

abot 125 i think. they're on discounttiredirect.com

thats for the 16, they have other sizes i believe. KLC had these on his but they were the polished/black version. actually I have them photoshopped on my truck. they looked better for real on klc's though.

oh i agree. and the last one, the rockwells, i bet are hard to keep looking good with those little polished bolts down in there.

I think this is the one josh said he liked?


I probably like that one most as well or the all black one of the same wheel. They are $125 ea. I think the hole style wheels, MT classic locks, cragar soft 8s, and all those are just way to over done. you don't see so many 5 spokes.

Those are the ones. Put it this way, if they were a deeper dished wheel, I'd be ordering them for D. That's how much i like them. Although I am a little bias. I really only like 5 star wheels. When I'm done, all my rigs will run 5 stars.

They look too small on the 150 but good on the jeeps.

I think all the jeeps have 17s on 35s where the 150 is probably 16s on 35s.

Drooling... 17 and a 35" Nitto. I'll likely be going with Procomp extreme MTs or KM2s though. Those Nittos are over 300 each.

tee hee. I'm working on making it more ultimate to live up to the thread title.

Gave her a good wash. Probably detail a little better when I go home tomorrow.


tried some new wheel cleaner, Meguiar's All Wheel and Tire Cleaner. Stuff is LEGIT. normally I just clean the brake dust with the same stuff I wash with but I had stuff baked on from where I toasted my rotors. Wouldn't budge, then wih this stuff it came right off, ecept for some tar like substance that has been there FOREVER. Also cleaned the tires with it, made those white letters shine. Down side is that the bottle of stuff was like $7.50.




Debating trying the duplicolor perfect match. Might try some on my grill since I didn't repaint it after my wreck, not sure how it would work on a larger area though. Prep, prep, prep. If it's crap then I guess I can take it to Josh's dad and get it done right.


oh and here's KLC's truck with the outlaw buckshots
