Can't go wrong for a $100 set of tires to play around with. Looks pretty sweet if you see any more deals like that for rims let me know I'm looking for some black steelies.

Ya, I definately need 33's, but I don't want to spring for the gears/locker/flares plus the tires right now. Too many other things to pay for. Like a trip to Edmonton and to Moab, Utah this summer.

31's will suffice for now.

In an attempt to bring my spare tire closer to the body/carrier...I decided to torch off the lower mount (street mode mount) so that I could slide it in further on the top receiver. Netted about 2.5" closer to the carrier, and feels a lot more solid and doesn't stick out as much. Cleaner look in my opinion.

Just decided I hated the silver ring on the spare rim, so I painted it black. Better suited for the Jeep

I used some "Mothers" product. Was not wanting to achieve anything perfect, just clean it up a bit.

Ya, me and a big crew from Canada are driving down there and wheelin for a week. October 19-29 (total trip) Unfortunately, due to our groups manditory equipment list, I won't be bringing my rig. All rigs must have 33's or bigger and at least one locker.
