Looks good! Its ashame the flares and 33's dont cooperate, looks beef!

Im only on 31s on mine for the sake of keeping my flares. Not really ready to sacrifice the clean look til I jump up to big boy shoes haha.

What kind of wheels are you going with when you are done borrowing those? The width and backspacing certainly isnt helping your rubbing issues lol

Sorry for the late reply, i've been sick for the past few days but i found a set of Ravine wheels on Craigslist for 100 bucks and picked them up for 85 I've decided to go with 31" pro comp a/t's because the 33's not only destroyed my turning radius, but also my front fenders and gas mileage so hopefully i will be better off with this choice. My tires should be here for the weekend so stay tuned for updated pics!

That will look fantastic. Ravines are my favorite factory wheels.

Now that i am getting over my sickness.. here are some pics with the new shoes! I love it! these tires are quiet on the road and handle well, also got to test those out today at school pics to follow. I've had my Jeep "Fiona" for almost a month now and put around 800 miles on her so far with no problems since the water pump Also, a question: My exhaust hangs pretty low in the rear, has anybody had any problems with rubbing or ripping this off on the trails, i'd like to get it fixed if it's going to be a problem, especially with my departure angle! I plan on getting my flares back on sometime this weekend, i cannot stand this look anymore Here are some pictures just so i dont keep you guys waiting, gonna plan on disco-ing and testing out the flex tomorrow and getting some quality pictures on my camera, stay tuned

You should enter into the COTM for march. They are looking for clean rigs on 31 or smaller tires.

It doesnt say anything about the degree of output, but if they arent great its only 10 bucks you know? The ones i wanted from v-led were out of stock and the ones from superbright were 18 bucks without shipping
