get MT Sidebiter wheels! I like the Classics, but they look too much like soft 8s to be worth it.

I've seen both in person, the side biters I was set on didn't look right in a 15in size. That being said I see the classics every time I park next to a Walmart employees jeep when he's working. There starting to grow on me.

Thanks I need to make sure I start trimming this weekend for them. I am going to get adj. control arms within to months and 4.5in springs but it doesn't help me now. ill be following notch customs directions on cutting. Except for maybe the rear at the moment because there directions want you to weld but a won't have access to a welder for a few weeks.
If anyone has any good tips for rear fender trimming I would love some advice.

Finished up cutting my fenders, now just painting some primer and paint on the cuts until I cand get a Monstaliner touch up kit. Also chopped out the front bracket the bumper holds on to didn't need it and each side held up about 3lbs of dirt on the top of it. Won't have to worry about it anymore.

Big news! Last night i found out i will be doing the car seat mod ALOT sooner than expected. Going to brewing to get as much overtime as possible to buy baby/jeep stuff on the side. This zj will stop at 4.5 in and 33s in a few months as at as suspension goes. Need to keep it a viable dd/light weekend wheeler at least until I have another vehicle for dd use.

Of course that being said there are still tons of othe mods ill will be doing lighting, electrical etc. in te mean time.

ZJ looks awesome man. The brown monstaliner looks really good with your interior. I can see why you suggested it to me, my interior is not that light though. I have the Spice colored interior, which I really like with the moss green. actually after going though the monstaliner photo thread for a couple hours I think im going to order the spice color for the interior..ill probably start a build thread like you have here when im ready to do that. Anyways like I said man thats a sick ZJ you have there. Good luck and keep at it, remember you jeep is like the bank, safe reliable place to put all your money. lol
