OK did the smart thing...traded the Cherokee that would really only accomidate "mild" lift for a full size Dodge 4x4.Already busted out 12" lift on my Dodge...should roll 40's under there no issues.Yes its a 1/2 ton BUT I really dont "wheel" all that much...about 6-7 times a year, go to Coyote or trying the new Wildwood off road park.

Drove the Red Ram mile or so over to guys place...he fired up his Hobart/Argon gas Mig welder so we got some good solid welds under there.Now I'm at the stage where I need to sell my 11.2x24 R1's to bolt up some rubber that will fit....40" tractors preffered.
