Looks real good man.

I got my replacement headlights for less than $100 off ebay.

I would like to head down there sometime in Sept. No date planned as of yet but I can definitely keep you posted. I would say that a set of rock sliders that don't limit your break-over point would be excellent.

Are yours aftermarket?

Let me know when you head down there to Attica, Brad. September is perfect weather for wheeling, not too hot and not too cold.

No, they're just regular OEM laredo headlights.

I felt the same way before I even had my GC. Although, I do regret selling my old TJ, I wouldn't get rid of her for anything less. I'll own another TJ again, soon...but the GC is staying.

Its a good thing you asked. Kevin's Offroad (KOR) makes a series of roof racks for the WJ. The one I've got happens to be their best, and lowest priced, in my opinion. It's made strictly for carrying your spare when it doesn't fit in the back. It's also got tabs on the front and the rear for offroad lights. You can see them in the pictures. I know they also make some attachments for the rack so that you can carry trail gear such as shovels, hi-lifts, etc.

Here are some pix I just snapped, just before it got dark...





This picture is kind of dark, but you can see from underneath its locked down with 2 1/2" studs.

Wow, that is one beautiful WJ that you've built up! I'm very glad to have run into this thread as I am trying to do something similar with my recently purchased 2004 WJ Overland model. I previously owned a JK Unlimited Rubicon for almost five years but had to give her up for financial reasons. One thing I've always hated about the JK was it's lack of power (especially in sand) so getting the V8 (HO especially) came almost naturally plus I was able to stay in the Jeep brand for a lot less $$$ yet still be able to build a very capable trail rig down the road.

I was wondering if you had any rubbing with the stock JK moabs and BFG KM's (32's) with the IRO 3" lift? That is exactly what I plan to do as soon as I can get the WJ 3 inches in the air.

Thanks man, thanks for reading my thread. Hopefully I can be of some help. I had no rubbing at all when I still had the Moabs and yhe BFGs. Only time it rubbed was at full turn in reverse. Now that ive got the steel wheels it rubs about the same in reverse at full turn. The backspacing on these is 3.75 so they stick out a little more. I had to trim a bit off the back part of the front bumper. I wont be trimming anything off the sheet metal of trim, I cant bring myself to that lol.

Did you use wheel spacers with the Moab's? I love those black rims! What brand are they?

No, I didnt have any wheel spacera on with the Moabs nor the steel wheels. The brand of these steelies is called "Unique". Basicaly same thing as Cragars, only I believe diacount tire sells them as such brand

Been a few months since I upated. Orderd a set of replacement headlights. Never was fond of the chrome housings on the Limited models, so got some aftermarket Laredo style.



Also currently thinking of ordering a Rola roof rack and if I do I will have my KOR roof rack tire carrier for sale.

Oh, Ive since replaced my spare Moab with a matching 17x8 black steelie.

Got a slew of goodies on the way. A set of Bilstein 5125 shocks to replace the ones I currently have, Bilstein 5100 steering stabilizer, Hella black magic lamps, and a replacement driver side mirror. Also replaced my headlights with Laredo style assemblies.
