I like the biohazard ones but skulls would be cool too. The rest don't really have any personality just design.

Yeah, I've heard bead locks are a ***** to balance, so I'm going to look into them more until I decide whether or not to buy.

Just get the fake ones and put a Monster sticker on your window.

Several of the guys here use the balancing beads for the bead locks or a handfull of BB's. Lol. I know some of the local tire shops wont do it here. Texas doesn't allow them for highway use. It's not enforced though

Wait a minute, you're buying beadlocks and still running the stock axles? This seems like one of the most assbackwards ways to build a Jeep. If you ran those tires low enough to need a beadlock you'd end up blowing **** up as fast as you could replace it. Why not swap some locked axles in, wheel the Jeep, then see if you actually need beadlocks?

Getting my axles next month. And decided not to go with beadlocks, the aluminum inners cost a lot more than steel, so its not worth it to me.

I haven't had much experience with it yet, my Jeep is back home and I'm out of state at college. My brother was the one who put it in for me, and he said it looks military grade. He also said that it makes the Jeep drive somewhat similar to a boat.

Can you show how the light brackets are attached to the A pillars? Do the lights seem solid when running down bumpy roads?

Don't have any pics, but they use self-tapping screws to mount. They're actually really sturdy.
