Black....

Project is looking good. I am researching similiar mods.

Can't wait to see the 35's on it. I am still trying to decide between 33's & 35's. I DD it about 50 miles a day......

Is that a spacer lift or coil??


Also, how is the sound of the Flowmaster? Any drone, and that how about the rasping sound some get in the uper revs??


Thanks & Good Luck !!!

its a 3.25 RC lift. the 35's are coming soon believe me as soon as i can justify it to the gf they're gunna be on. the flowmaster sounds good. it has mild drone at 2k rpms. but it sounds great. it doesnt sound as good as my zj with the 5.2 v8. but for a 6 cylinder it sounds pretty good.

Have you checked out these http://www.pixeldecals.com/shop/inde...path=37&page=2
They will make anything you want
I personally would go with a company like this in case a replacement is needed in the future.

if you are gonna have 35s on stock rims i believe you will need wheel spacers. Most likely because they will be wider than your ?33s? (i think thats what you have). Also they might not fit just right on the stock tire carrier. The sticker is cool, but me personally i would get the sticker company that JLC08Jk referred you too and use black grip tape to make it. or print out a stencil and get some grip tape and make it yourself. that should cost but like 5 bucks and you dont have to wait on shipping

You will definitely need wheel spacers for 35's on stock rims. An inch and a half should do just fine. Same will go for the gate, although you might want to just leave the spare off until you can get a tire carrier. Over time, you'll pop the welds on the gate. I think even stock 32" tires push the recommended weight limit by about 10lbs on that thing. Not quite sure what Chrysler was thinking there.
