      Thanks Mike. What size are your tires? That look is pretty much perfect - how do they perform? Any rubbing? Did you adjust steering stops?

        Tire size is a 285/70R17 so almost a 33 inch tire. Went with the Bridgestone Dueler Revo A/T's good tire for the price and not to heavy. I was looking for a good all around tire. I am happy with the performance in the rain and snow. Have not had them in the mud yet. No rubbing as of now and I don't think they will. Steering stops are at the factory length. I do have a Black Magic Super 16 brake kit on it. The steering knuckles are replaced but the stops should in relatively the same spot. I will check once I get back in town Friday and need to do a write up on all I have changed on it.

          Thanks. I'm looking at 315/70R17's. So a little bigger than yours. Wondering if 1.25" would be right or the 1.5" like you used.

            1.25 should clear and not rub. 315/70R16s that were on it when I got the Jeep rubbed at almost full steering lock. It had chrome Bridget when I got it. I think most of the rubbing issue came from previous owners messing with the long arms. My solution was to replace the suspension and start over. It has been lowered about 1.75 inches. Springs are still settling in.

                Somewhat frustrating owning a TJ and wanting a set of premium AEV wheels. Even the knock-offs don’t make wheels for the TJs. Arggg!!

                  That’s why I buy them all. Might have a set of Bridgers to sell
