Hey, neighbor. That looks like you can fit some bigger tires now. And no need to apologize for getting muddy.

I used a regular grinder with a cutting wheel and a jig saw. Yes i had to trim the wells but that was simple compared to the metal.

Do those bolt on? Weld-on? Do you have a link for them? Gimme a holler when you're gonna do the install. Do they have a matching front. They make everything for you guys. Suspect Like everybody has Jeeps. Rolling Eyes Very Happy

ok well FINALLY got the rear end back in place and went to tighten down the U-Bolts and snapped one. Oh well it was time to replace them they were looking pretty bad. If anyone knows where I can get some new ones pretty cheap let me know.

Timely question. I need some for a trailer. I sw some at the trailer store at Beaver and Chaffee. Are they the same. Quality the same? Duh, I guess it should be, a trailer carries some big weight. No idea on price though.

Well I picked up some new ones at advances but instead of going with the stock 1/2 ones that I broke. I replaced them with some thicker ones that around 7/16 thick. Went on great and cost under 20. Took it out for a ride and stopped at the gas station to see if everything was good still and my starter died. One this after another.

$hiznit happens. Water, mud, then some more water and mud. Amazing these things last as long as they do after being submerged and stuff the way some are.
