Not an option you mentioned, but I like the small orange corners like on Cameleer's ZJ. Ive seen them on ebay. I everything else looks hokey in my opinion.

Those are probably the meanest eyes I've seen on a jeep.......ever

OP: if your feeling brave. A can of VHT dark light spray tint is around 15 bucks. I did that with mine and they look sexy.

I have 3.75" on mine, they help keep the 31's from rubbing... i'd suggest that, or 4". Btw mine are black 8's. (i like them better then d windows as its a little more modern and less cheap looking imo)

I have 4inch soft 8s as well. Imo i feel like 4inches almost sticks out too much and i might have gone with 4.25. but its is miniscule. With 4.25 you would probably have to trim more though, but it would only be a small amount
