did you take any measurements before you took it in, so you could compare?

Do you think your jeep will be taller than Bill's? (Tambill)

Of course....not.

I never remember that stuff. I'll know exactly how much taller it is by measuring the increase in my wife's *****ing getting in and out of it. Should be interesting. I dunno if it'll be taller n bill's or not - probably.

That sounds like it's going to be one sweet ride. But a bit** to get into. Hope you have a ladder.

I'm just giving you a hard time. Mine off of the YJ are only 36's, I knew you were looking to get some swampers next and with 6" and your flares you should have no problem running some 38's. IMHO Be sure to post up some pics when your done.

You know they say it's not the length, I mean the height of the tire, its the WIDTH of the tire that gets you where you need to go.
If in doubt go with a BIGGER tire.
