We just extended the wheelbase, this should make us able to fit up to 33 inch tires. Here are some pictures!
Extended trailing arms, driveline, upper third link (heim joint) and lowered shock mounts:
You can see the difference in the spring perches (which still have to be moved back on the frame):
We decided to put 2" Lift Jeep TJ springs in the back while we had it out. Made by BDS Suspension, they are pretty stiff, but will help when we have the truck loaded up for road trips or camping:
We borrowed some 33's to see how they fit. We will have to do some major massaging to the front floorboards and inner fenders, but they would fit. If we didn't want to do so much work, we could buy 32's. Here's some pics of the 33's:
! I am a dork! I forgot to tell you how the tires unfolded!
Yep, we got 33's. Brand Spankin' with fur. Here's a couple of pics RIGHT AFTER they were bought:
