Does anyone have a stock front recovery loop going cheap? Want remove the nudge bar but that leaves the drivers side without a recovery loop as it is welded as part of the bracket. Want to sell the nudge bar off and include the mount.

Don't want to go to the expense of KJ lefts and rights as wont be offroading in this, but want something to hook to just in case.

Decided today to just leave it on for now but thanks for the offer.

Looked at the front tyres which dad had at 50 psi! All these horizontal cuts into the tread blocks. Not in the rear which were also at 50 psi.
Weird! Dropped the pressure back down to normal 33psi and ride comfort much improved and tyre monitor happy too!
It has Pirelli AT's in 235/60R18's on it. Is there a common sized AT that is a size up worth looking at if I have to replace them all for the RWC?
First vehicle with 18's so haven't had time to research it all yet. Only be looking at around inch bigger as wont be lifting it as this is just a stop gap until the Willys is finished.
Otherwise what tyres in the stock size please?

Iíve just sold a car with RWC. the mechanic was insistent on EXACTLY the same tyre spec and load rating as written on the sticker in the door sill.

Look up JarrardB at the wheel deal. Heís on this forum and a Jeep nut.

Which state are you in? Certainly would need to check with the place to see what they would pass, before going back for the second inspection if needed that is for sure, as would not want to run into that!
