Hey I have the same wheels (They came with my jeep when i got it, with 32 BFG MT's on them) But I have been wondering how much they go for. How much did you pick yours up for?

Mine are 33 BFG AT's. I paid somewhere in the $150 range for each at a local Sears. I decided not to go online just incase there was a problem.

Here's a quick update.

Here are a couple pics of my homemade half doors. I highly recommend it. I got a little fancy on something's that you could probably do cheaper.

Here is the finished product:


Now the steps:










The hardware:







Final Thoughts:
The doors are only for mud holes. I found that you have a tendency not to adventure in bigger holes when you don't have doors on. I won't ride with them any other time. I prefer doorless and this is a fast attempt to minimize mud inside the jeep. The quality reflects that up close.

The best advice I can give for someone doing this (assuming you care about a quality product), make sure to sand and polyurethane. I should have and didn't. The primer and top coat had a hard time sticking.

Cut the door a hair small (I drew guidelines from my full doors). I had a heck of a time getting the gasket to fit. I used garage door foam gasket.

Finally buy a wooden fence clasp for the door clasp. It is perfect.



Total Cost:
Wood, Home Depot $25
Clasp, Lowes $7 (two, it also comes with a latch you could add as mock handle)
Hinges, Work $0
Gasket, Lowes $12

The New Rockers

I got these rockers because I love the look and the price was right. I was skeptical of the rocker quality because of the $100 price tag (as of 8/14/08). I was very happy with the final product.



















DRILLING IS REQUIRED!

I love it. If I had it to do over I would get the 3". Also it doesn't come with bump stops, just springs and shocks. The ride is stock.

Honestly the 3.07 isn't THAT bad. I've been driving i for nearly 2 years. I don't use 5th or 6th gear. If I ever get the money I'll regear, but it's not high on the list.

Your Jeep is awesome. I like the wheel tire combo. Black and red is a good color scheme. The only thing that bugs me are the extended fender flares. I have always thought they look kind of goofy, even bushwackers.

I 100% agree about the first part and I'm almost with you on the second. The Xenon flares are nice looking, but I've noticed a few jeeps lately that have looked awesome and every one had tire sticking out. I'll likely split the difference and go with some rubicon flares. Initially I went with the 6 inch Xenons because I wanted a flare to protect me from mud. I've since learned there's not a flare in the world that will protect you.

Dang, I like your jeep. Where did you get those center caps on your wheels? And did you paint those tailgate hinges? I like them in black.
