Sweet Jeep man. I am constantly looking at yours when I think about getting my new 32's to go with my lift. I know they recommend 31's, but I love how yours looks!

Doc, I love how the blacked out side blinker thing looks, I was wondering, did you buy covers to go over it? Looks awesome btw, but does that bumper make your Jeep sit lower in the front? Can't wait for some black rims.

Thanks for the compliments. and about the 32's dude, go for it. they stuff perfectly, dont rub or anything, maybe a little in the front if disco'd but i havent tried.

and nope, not covers. i went to a hobby shop and bought "window tint" model paint. apparently krylon stained glass paint works well too.

more pics because i'm a pic whore.

palm tree...tropical jeep


i love it!


*** end:


yes it does sit a little lower up front now, BUT i have cherokee coils that i'll be installing soon.

Nice Jeep, as I'm sure you've heard. (One of my fav threads, btw.)

I had to ask though, for an MT, how do those tires hold up on wet/snowy surfaces? I saw a couple pics of you in the snow with your rig, and had to ask. I'd love to run an MT for my next tire, but don't want to sacrifice a lot of performance for it. Also, what's the noise like compared to stock, if you can think back that far??

Thanks Dr. Marneaus! I do appreciate any feedback!
