I am sure it was posted elsewhere in her, but I didn't really read everything... Are those skins the Treadwright retreads? If so, how are you liking them? I saw an article in four wheeler awhile back that said they seemed pretty good.
My wife has an '03 pretty much just like yours, but with a 2 1/2" lift only and 245/17 series Grabber AT 2's.
I am building some bumpers for it in the spring as soon as I finish my Cj and hopefully use hers to tow my CJ out to the Springs for our anual run.
