new wheels and tires 01.jpg


New wheels and tires.
TACTIK Circle 8 Classic 15 Inch Wheel for Jeep Wrangler 1987-2006, 5x4.5 Bolt Pattern, 15x8 (-12.7mm Offset), 4 Inch Backspace, Satin Black $59.99 each with center caps

GT Radial Adventuro AT3 LT31/10.50R15 109 S
Paid $100 each for them last week, I just noticed they went up to $119.99

The offset (-1/2" with 4" backspaceing) seams about right for my taste, plenty of room.
Haven't got my new lug-nuts in the mail yet..

finished my ball joint job, its all back together and ready for the drive to work tomorrow. Glad I bought that ball joint tool set awhile back, still wasnt easy but at least it was possible, Ive always used a torch before.

I was hearing a clunk on turns from the right front wheel, so I pulled the wheel and found the upper ball joint boot split in half, with 1/16” of slop. 2 year old Mevotech UCA with integrated ball joint, greaseable and regularly greased.

Ordered a greasable ACDelco UCA/ ball joint.

You can't put AC Delco parts on a Ford, it's illegal.

The ball joints I just put in had the brand name of “detroit axle”. all 4 and are greaseable, for $40. Chances are they will last the rest of the time I have this truck.

Nope, 'fraid not, from Cass W.Va and the 413 is a just number that seems to follow me around... :)
And now I know there's a town in MA named Otis that has a 413 area code.... :unsure:

yanked the radio out and the center bezel that surrounds it. hopefully will be able to fix the cigarette lighter mount that broke last year, and maybe replace the drive belt in the cassette player so I can kick it like 1997 again and play tapes... or at least so the cassette adapter will work so I can play my music from my phone...
