    Took the stock 14" steelies off and put on some 15" Jeep rims with 225/75/15 tires on that I got off CL for $150.00. The front 2 are about 75%. The back ones are about 50%.

    Those look good on that actually. I've seen someone elses truck with 18 in wrangler rims and it looked like poo.

    I'm sure not gonna have a show truck, lol, and I'm also cheap, but it's hard to find 14" tires to fit on the stock rims anymore.

    Did you have to use spacers to clear the hub snout on the front?

    On my Canyon 15x8 wheels, I had to have the center holes bored out to clear the front hub snout and then used aftermarket push-thru centers>>>

    Bored hole without center cap, you can see how far out the snout is:

    Well, they were not exactly what I was looking for but the price was right for wheels AND tires.

    Next thing I'll do is probably the air box mod > http://ford40.com/airbox.shtml

    i am new so I dont know if that is why I can not enlarge your profile pic to see the rims. I have 14 in and like you want them gone for 15 or 16 in. Buddy has 15 in jeep on the purple 3rd gen in picture I can use. With my truck all og parts, outside shocks and front springs is there anything else needed to fit the jeep rims? I want to lift the front to level it our as well. Thanks,
