Last time I went out we had a guy with a pretty stock grand on 31's with us at the badlands. He just didn't go over some of the larger rocks, just around. But he kept up with us.

Right now I probably couldn't keep up with you, I broke the front yoke at the badlands and haven't fixed it yet. Only 2wd...

I noticed someone elses HS arms and theirs bent in whereas mine are straight now potentially causing problems with me running stock rims.
Might have been mine? They are angled inward to clear the 7" offset of my H1 rims on the YJ

Mine came from Rockstomper... great service but they are in CA so it would take a little longer and they are a little bit more expensive IIRC.

You can often find aftermarket steelies with the kind of offset you would need on here for under $100.

If your looking for new rims, new arms would be cheaper, you should be able to re-sell yours.

but i want some that i like not dumpy aftermarket ones like "some" jeepers like as you can tell i like the more old school look. What off set do you think i should get if i do go that route of getting different rims?


Who wants arms that dont really seem to work good for any application??

Thanks for the encouragement

i banned myself by wanting to push a shinny button.

I am going to burn it in once i get the rest of the parts done, i need to take it to a friends who has a 220, i only have a 110 and i dont know if that would be considered strong enough for the bumper.

just want to be safe than sorry.
