I've been working on the ole girl quite a bit lately.  The old stereo was cutting in and out so I replaced it with a new JVC unit. Also got the bed back on and all put together. And finally I found some of the wheels I've been looking for. A guy in Tulsa had them for $450 with nearly new tires. Still 31/10.5/15. They are a little shorter and a little wider than what I had.

I think so. The offset isn't quite enough so they stick out a little more than I wanted. One side is leaning a little so I need to Jack it up and check the ball joints.  Of course.  But I've been working on the garage quite a bit lately and I'm back on nights so I don't feel like doing much till the weekend.

The lower left ball joint had a little slop so I changed them all. The front rubbed on full lock when hitting a bump so I wasn't happy with that, they just stuck out to far. I was playing on marketplace one day while the wife was in a store and ran across some factory Wrangler wheels. The others that I thought were factory were Eagle wheels. Real close match so I bought them. I had 1.25 spacers on the rear and took them off and ended up with a stance I finally like. When the weather gets a little nicer I'm going to look into lowering it just a little.

I cut one coil out of each front spring. It lowered it about an inch. You can't really tell to much unless you look at the gap from the flares to the tires. I'm not going to buy lowering blocks for the rear until I decide if I like the raked look or not.

Personally, I like trucks with some rake. That way when you are hauling stuff you don’t have some stupid looking squat, it will be more level.

Well, I put the Dual Sync distributor back in today. It has been running really good with no issues so I decided it was time to give it another try. So far so good. It needs to go through the learning process again but I drove the balls off of it for about an hour and it never hiccuped. I was doing some reading and I came across some info I guess I never paid attention to about how to fine tune the timing with the controller after the initial setup. Fingers crossed. Wires are a mess but I will clean it all up when I'm confident it is going to be ok.

I haven’t done anything but drive it for quite awhile. I bought this ‘98 Grand Cherokee disc brake set last year so I decided to finally put it on. I followed the guy who has a video on here with one change. The axle had a lot of play in and out so I put .100 spacers between the shoulder in the axle and bearing. I don’t know if it matters one way or the other but I guess I will find out. It seems to be working good so far.
