Put some new 17" wheels on the old girl and some good All-Terrain tires, after making some aluminum hub centric rings for them.
Looks good.

ford?

had a buddy that put lug centric wheels on his hubcentric f-350..... pulling a horse trailer and had 2 lug studs left when he pulled over after he felt a nasty wobble. the other 6 snapped off.

Chevy. But I am a firm believer in using hubcentric rings on ALL aftermarket wheels. This not only eases the load on studs, but prevents vibrations AND makes it far easier to install the wheels on the vehicle after rotating, etc. :thumbsup:

after putting about 150mi on them so far, I'm sold! Its a lot nicer to drive now, especially on some nasty bumps around here that the old shocks just wouldnt soak up. much less nose dive and body roll too, and I only did the fronts because the bushing were wrecked on my old shocks, the rears will come soon now that I see how bad they are.

I was considering the Fox mono tube shocks that were like $40 more pershock because they are rebuildable but I went for a ride in my friend's truck that is pretty simialr to mine and he has Fox shocks that came with his BDS lift and honesty they shocks were just too stiff, like they arent valved right. So I decided to give the Bilsteins a shot after reading and hearing a lot of guys on GM fullsize rant and rave about them.

Spring cleaning has started! Finally got a warm day and some free time! This is just after a wash with Adam's car wash soap, wash pad, and grit guard. Still have to clay bar, polish, and then put on paint sealant (last longer and is stronger than a wax, but doesnt shine quite as nice). Then polish and seal wheels and other chrome, put Adam's super VRT on trim and tires, then vacuum/ clean carpets, and dust and protect inside! lotta work yet, good thing I wont be driving it much for a while!

not a bad shine/ reflection for only having washed it, with no wax at all.

just some of my Adam's collection! great stuff, and I have more on the way! :rolleyes: :yes: :bow:

Replaced all the hearer and radiator hoses, the thermostat, the mechanical fan clutch with a heavy duty model and a new electronic fan.

It's a Jeep Cherokee. 13 years old and 100k mikes. Bout time she got some TLC.

I also,learned how to recharge the AC today. Flexed the rig last fall getting to a hunting spot. The AC was never the same.
