    went with the 235/75/15, my fat bobs kit should be here sometime this week. its amazing how much a difference the tires make, it actually feels like the tires are gripping the road. tax return money well spent if you ask me.

    got a few more things in store for my baby taco ;)

    freaking awesome :) nice man. now just paint your wheel the way I did and you'll be off to a great start. What kit did you end up going with? just front spacers?

    Argh! Can't wait for these stock tires to wear out. So far I've clocked 3300 miles in 2.5 months of ownership, so maybe in another year and a half I'll be getting my 235s on.

    Do you know by chance what the part number for the AAL is? I just ordered mine over the phone and he gave me a part number. When I went to check it out there was know option for the rear shocks....? post pics when you have your lift on!

    i had about that much on my stock ones before i got these. i plan on selling them for a hundred if im lucky. i had the money so i figured why not do some upgrades. the difference in ride is unbelievable.

    x2 my 215s were like brand new but weren't cutting it for me. These 235s make the ride so much more better.

    Do you have any rubbing at full lock? I removed the "black box" that everyone talks about. I have been trying to find new rims that will fit and can't find anything so i think i am just going to buy 235/75R15's for the stock rims. I bought 15x7 procomp rockcrawler 4.5" bs wheels and they won't even bolt on because the caliper is in the way. (btw we have the same name!!)

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Ya I have no rubbing at full lock. I think the 235's with an aggressive thread looks really good.
