Its like Christmas all over again when you pull up to the house & see something like that. Nice job-care to share who you purchased the tires through, and who might of shipped?

ZOSO, he would have been the "cat's meow" if he would have had them balanced, mounted, and installed. I guess I would settle for out of sight.

Hell yeah! I am just glad he kept them out of sight.

My UPS guy is defiantly a car guy (maybe even an off roader)
'cause he always takes care of my mail order parts.

Thanks again guys. Little sketchy on the highway, bit of a shake at around 45....then it goes away, but it feels really geometrically un centered. Only way I can describe it. This is my first vehicle with coil springs, and trackbars. Im hoping you guys will say yes to this question, but no way the axles are centered under the body even with just a 2.5 lift right? So I ordered that Terraflex rear trackbar bracket, and a adjustable front trackbar from JKS. I also ordered adjustable rear swaybar links, and will move the rears to the front.

what you really need are front adjustable control arms to right the geometry. but hey! it looks good and will be great off road! what more do you want, right?

lol, I know...I get what I paid for. One day Ill have ridiculous setups and be able to flex like you guys do. One good thing though is although I wasted a bit of money on spacers, I did learn a shit load more about my jeep on a 2 hour install, than a year of reading forums. My question was more just centering the axles, I just wanna do that for now, just a bit more stability at highway speeds. Its really not even that bad, im just a wuss.
