Found a free moment, so I figured I'd post the specs.
08' Loaded Sahara w/Hemi swap from Burnsville Offroad, 4.88 Superior Gears, Rubicon 44 front diff, RK 5.5 Mid-Arm, Bilstein 5150s, SpyderLocks w/ 37x12.50R18 BFGs, Ox diff. covers, JE Reel 1350 driveshafts, Magnaflow exhaust(sounds great with the hemi!). Soon to come, bumpers, skids, rockers, sleeve/gusset kit for the front 44 & a D60 for the rear if the wife doesn't kill me by then!

Wow that's nice. Love the Hemi and the Poison Spyder bead-locks.

Are you sure you didn't find this before the "accident"? :laughing: j/k

LOL, no kidding, it would make one think that I did! Good thing is most people around here would never know the differnce between the two!

Know anyone that would want the PSC bead-locks/tires? I'll never be able to keep them clean in Ohio, and I'm waayyy to particular to just paint them and forget about it! Plus I already have wheels & tires in the garage that were for my other jeep and I need to buy bumpers/rockers/skids.

I would be interested in them, but I am in Texas so shipping may be kind of high. You could PM me with your zip code and I could call PSC to get the weight and dimensions- to get a ball-park price.

How much?

New jeep + Hemi + beadlocks? That's it, I'm driving north until I get hit by a snow plow.

I know how much the tires weighed, from a receipt the prior owner had(284lbs). The wheels weight 47lbs each according to PS's website. That brings the total to 472lbs(I only have 4)! Ouch, but on a pallet it might be affordable. My zip code is 44654.

Dunno, pm me with an offer... total retail price of both the wheels & tires is absurd, I can't believe people pay that!

LOL, only problem with that... a lot of people are killed when getting hit by one! Plus they are the government and they don't pay for s**t!

Looks like it's pretty well set up! If those beadlocks are still around at that time let me know. I couldn't buy them now but maybe by then.

Will do! I have a feeling they'll still be around... not many people around here that can run 37s!
