all WK's should come stock with a 2" lift and some 31's.
No kidding. The ride trade-off is minimal. It should have at least been an option available from the "factory". I'm heading into my third year with the 2" and I have zero complaints.

What kind of roof rack is that?

Its a Rola rack, great rack for the money.

Im very tempted to paint the Moabs and I have considered the new carbon color. Heres a photoshop of matte black;

Carbon for the win then imo. That would be my 2nd choice. Because your ride has a dark shade, I think the Moabs how they are now look the best.


Nothing against those who have done it or run them, but black is so overplayed on these boards when it comes to wheels. Seems 8 out of every 10 Jeeps either has black soft 8s, D-windows, or their wheels are just painted black.


That's just my opinion though and you know what they say about opinions. In the end, it's your Jeep so it's what really matters to you the most in the end.....not to me or anyone else.


EDIT: Oh, and thanks for that rack info. I'm liking those the more I look at them.

i think the wheels would look great black. seems to complement your ride better, the brushed looks like it clashes with the total theme. im not sure if i would go flat or gloss though, i think a nice satin would be great.
