I am once again a Jeep owner. It's a 1997 Grand Cherokee Limited 5.2. It has had the transfer case swap done already. It has a ProComp 3 inch lift along with 1.75" coil spacers under it. It has the Dana 44 rear axle but does not have limited slip according to the build sheet. It currently has 33x12.50x15 Interco TSL Thornbirds wrapped around some Mickey Thompson 15x10 rims but the tires go back to the previous guy and I get his Mastercraft Courser MTs. I bought it from a buddy, and that was the agreement. I've had my eye on this for almost a year and he finally decided to sell it. It also has the Bushwacker fender flares (which I don't really like but because of holes drilled and metal trimmed, they must stay). I still have the front bumper but it had been cracked and removed. I will either put it back on, get another stock bumper or just spend the money and have one installed.

I didn't like the no bumper look so I temporarily put the stock back on until I determine the direction I'm going with the project.

Picked up a set of 5 stock ZJ Limited 16" rims with 60% Goodyear Wrangler MTRs, one was brand new spare never used. They are LT245/75R16.
Image

The MTRs are a little small but decent in my opinion. I like the stock rims better. Have considered removing the Bushwackers.

You should see the Jeep looking at it from the front or rear....the flares stick out possibly 6 inches farther now because of stock rims.
