ha i know right i was thinkin the same lookin at your pics. and idk i just really like how my stock rims look. i'll know for sure soon cuz i'm painting my buddies rims(he said i can keep them lol) ceramic black. so idk. i'm plannin on 32s so it depends on which rims fit the best with the tires.

ha thanks man. and yeah i'm thinking of debadging it. jeep somehow couldnt lay on grand cherokee on the doors level. my driver side slopes up in the middle like a 1/4 inch. i think it looks bad so that'l probably happen over the summer. hopefully i'll be getting my new front ds soon so i can wheel again. i'm going through withdrawals haha. and yeah that guy can kiss my ***. i dont care if he doesnt like it its not his jeep.

Its probably not chrysler that put it on crooked, that side was probably repainted and the body shop stuck it on crooked.

Cache, what's that bumper on yours, Protofab? I like it.

And I actually really dig this color. Def a mid 90's kind of color, what with the gold package, but I've always liked it, esp on the LTD's. I actually looked at one in this color before I got my black TSi, but they didn't want to work with me on my trade in.

ok well i finished wiring in my fuse block and switches. took forever mainly cuz i tried my best to hide all the wiring which meant removing plenty of body panels. but when i went to throw the switch i popped a fuse. so i'm going back through all my wiring tomorrow to check it and redoing my grounds. wiring is such a pita
