These have to be by far the best tires i have ever bought well worth the $900/33" price tag. I went out today mostly in 2wd they pull great, and they clean out excellent, i hope they last for awhile. I took a few pics today on our property. I have a few more things i want to get for it still...hahah.

Upcoming few months:

Kilby Gas Tank Skid, or SAVVY
OME steering stabilizer
TNT Flat fenders or METALCLOAK
Currie ROKJOK sway bar system
updated 03-06 Bestop High-Rock Mirrors
I'm not sure what order they will go in but i need to start saving again esp for the fenders and gas tank skid. I undercoated and painted up the underneath today and i noticed i need to get a new skid to to replace that piece of S.H.I.T tin thing under there asap.

Blue highlighted for my vote. For the fenders, that T&T are sweet, but I have also come around to the MCE flatties.

Thanks, i wasn't sure if you saw it on here haha, im leaning towards Kilby since they are a little cheaper but i may go with SAVVY, maybe Blaine will give me a discount. Im going to need fenders in the next year or so , i like the stock look but im just going to flat fender it. I will have to check out MCE, yes i much rather my bro's mirrors any day, i think of the yucky YJ when i look at my mirrors

If yuou go MCE, you can afford the Savvy. They are like $160 for a pair iirc. They are supposed to be working on a set to do highline fenders. Here is Jerry's Write-UP (a bit long): http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f9/ne...angler-959981/

And a little pic:

I did some serious painting underneath today, scrap, sand, scrap, sand, paint, bedline, semi-gloss to help retain the factory appearance, i hate a rusty jeep frame, spent 4 hours on it today and 3 hrs the other day scrapping and mounting wheel spacers.

Also added my new jeep jamboree usa decal to mock my cousin's same sticker on his bumper, trigged an idea in my head, and added my ARB shackles back to the front bumper, im working on making a stubby as we speak. Idk yet, i love this bumper then i think i want a stubby.

They look nice but they don't replace the whole inner fender, plus that's a a lot of cutting drilling, although i have to look in to his some more yet, i want a new inside and out fender, im leaning towards what Spyder did on his Rubicon. I think im going to save for the gas tank skid, hopefully have that around the end of April, then im going to tackle the fenders along with a new sway bar system from Currie.

Yea that's what i thought, i like Smittybilt but same thing no really inner fender looks like it still uses the oem inner fender wells. I hear the powder-coat sucks like Olympic's products too. Might as well suck it up and shell it out for TNT's, cause ill never be happy ubless i have something of the BEST, i need though a gas tank skid first, im leaning towards KILBY because i have their steering skid and super pleased with their products and customer service.
