Cheap, can add bead locks to them easily, you can hammer one back if it bends, stronger than aluminum.

Show me a decent modern quality car or truck that comes with hub cabs. Sure, some come with quality steel wheels but not many in this day and age.

Here, a porsche and caddy with hubcaps, now stfu.
Steel wheels, aluminum wheels, who cares? Both have come a long way and are comparable in weight, cost, strength and just about every other aspect. There is no winner, it's all personal preference.

Now wtf does any of this wheel talk got to do with this build thread?

I said modern, but thanks for your input.

I really don't care what you have, get what makes you happy.

I love that you're wheelin the treadwright M/T's... I love mine and would suggest them to anyone. How can you go wrong when they are $85, have a 2 year, 24000 mile warranty, and are an all around great tire.

Just used some 2500 grit (i think) sand paper. They have it at walmart and its black. just make sure you keep the sanding surface nice and wet. Also, you will need 2 stages or rubbing compound. And the only thing you can see now is in the right light you can see two tiny ridges where the stripes were, i'm a very picky person and my jeep has to be just right, and this doesn't bother me.

I know right? they are an all-around good choice. They let me pick up my tires in SD when i was traveling through. I will back Tread-wright up any day.

Also forgot to add, I put in some new to me fog-lights. They looked brand new, thanks to Blackwhiteriot for a great deal, and throwin in the extra fog. I also picked up some front tow hooks and a gas tank skid for ONLY 60!! It was a steal, its all factory Up-country stuff. I also chopped the hanger on my exhause so now, instead of it hanging level with the hitch, it's about 2 inches higher, about .75" away from the very bottom of the bumper. Also shot my whole tail pipe flat black while it was out. One more thing................ Installed my JKS Quicker Disconnects..... man these things are awesome!
