If anyone else is intrested I'll sell them to anyone on here for $700 plus shipping.

Sorry for the thread jack.
33x12 is too big for my setup unless those have a ton of offset, and shipping would rapify me. i have 32's on stock wheels and they rub at lock.

we had one storm dump about 8" and melt right away, but those tires need about 1500 miles before the green diamonds are exposed.

My Titan has a Dana rear axle that's notorious for failure. No idea what model, but isn't Dana supposed to be a decent deal?

the D44 is the strongest bolt in axle for hte XJ. To go stronger you'd have to go ford 8.8 and do some welding.
