ok im at work right now so I will take some close up shot of them for you. none of them are anything major and if you buy them you can tell people the damage is from moab cause it really is!

so I think I am liking the soft 8's.. although I think I am going to paint the center caps red to match my red accents. ( I dont like that they are chrome)

sorry I didn't get a chance to take pictures of the wheels yet. it's a holiday weekend here in Utah and I left town in the WJ.. long story short I came home with no WJ should have it back in 2 weeks. for now I have to drive a Toyota pickup as a replacement. TRE / draglink are 100% toast and got major death wobble.

side note, this all happened in Moab and there is no one in town with parts in stock lol thought that was kinda funny

That picture was supposed to mean going to moab but arches is in moab and I love that place as well!!

So I will be driving back to colorado next thursday to get my WJ
Hopefully when I get there the death wobble/TRE problem will be fixed so I have my fingers crossed!

Small list of things to do when I pick it up and take the weekend off to work on it.

Replace TRE's/Draglink (If it does not get done before I get there)
Clean Throttle Body/IAC
Fix front pinion angle due to small vib
Weld custom bumpstops to the front axle
Install my new coil spring isolators from Kolak
Weld IRO coil spring retainer to front passenger side spring perch due to stripped bolt
Start process of making my rear tire carrier
