Agreed. He's made his look somehow appealing to me. Okay, it's the Moabs, tires, and roof rack that do it. They set it apart enough to look like an off-road Jeep. WK's don't start off looking like that to me. They should come with Moabs to start with. They make a big difference.

Thanks for the compliments, ya the Moabs and beefy tires really set this thing off.

Going with 4Xguard skids, tail light guards, gibson muffler, front Bilstein shocks and Boston Acoustic's all around. I'm picking up a full size spare this weekend and I am going to do some trimming to get it to fit under the Jeep.

Im currently trying to make brackets for two lights behind my grille, if that plan does not work out I may run some lights like this on the roof....


Also I maybe painting my Moabs black or flat black since my buddy has a shop and will only charge me for the paint....

I rather like the Moabs the way they are and think they compliment your WK nicely. However, if you want to paint them, I think that gunmetal is my favourite paint for wheels.

I haven't been a fan of the WK's but yours is awesome. Everyone is right, those Moabs make it. Where did you get the Jeep sticker on your roof rack? I haven't been able to find a large one like that.

2 inch Rough Country suspension lift
17" Moab JK wheels
255/75/17 BFG Mud Terrains
1.5 Rough Country Spacers
Bilstein Heavy Duty rear shocks
AMSOIL Nanofiber drop-in airfilter
Front and rear Mopar tow hooks
Mopar 2" hitch

So how much lift do you have 3.5? I looked on the rough country site and I only see the 2 inch strut spacers.
