Yep, trailers are a pain in the arse. Your hitch looks nice.

I might have missed it but are you color matching the trailer red ?

Right now the plan is to Line-X the entire thing then paint the sides. Not sure of the color yet, probably red though.

Well there goes my regear money. Came across a set of 5 15" Trailready beadlocks sitting on 37" MTRs for a pretty good deal. Ill be selling the tires since they are too big for my Jeep as it sits. Ill try them on first just to see how it looks though

I dont really like black wheels on red Jeeps so ill be removing the powdercoating. I might just sandblast them like my old American Racing wheels.

Nice find. Throw 'em on with the 37's just for a poser shot is a must.

You know I was thinkin this too. I really dont like black wheels but i think that might look nice. I started playing around polishing the rings and might polish them instead. Ill mess with em later.

Yea they are 15"

Man I shouldn't have bolted these tires on! The 37s are sweet, too bad I can't run them to my liking.



Yea they rubbed.



I started polishing one of the rings. I like the way its coming out so im just debating if I want a black wheel or a sandblasted wheel.







Decisions decisions..
