Yeah the wide steelies are too heavy for my hundred horses. Plus there are rubbing issues on hard bumps or with too much weight in the bed.

My 17s the only issue is I need to roll the rear fenders as they rub with how low my truck is, other then that they sit basically flush and I have no other issues but yes they weigh a ton I am looking into doing a 5 lug swap and running some aluminum 17s that i have

$400 truck just does it all. Clearing out my 10x30 storage unit so i can stop paying on it. This is my 4.8l lr4 project out of an 01. It's rated at 295hp stock. I have a 5speed trans for it as well. Not sure what vehicle gets it so i hold on to it for a rainy day. Hell of a truck that red truck. Got 2 more engines to move tomorrow too.

Nah, itís just a little time consuming to ensure no breakage or screws get missed. Iím sure for the experts on here theyíll pull it in 10 mins. Iím super ocd with my truck so Iím gonna take my time pulling it out and cleaning everything too.

4wheel98Cherokee,
Would you mind linking the exact eBay seller you bought from please?
You've inspired me to take on this project too. Living in rainy PNW it would be worthwhile mine is kinda wore out.
