I still can't tell. They have the lines in them (the sipes on the outer lugs and the color wear lines) and they still have the little hairs. There is a lot of meat to them, but my camera just sucks at showing it. I will get a better pic soon.

If you are talking about the one with the ladder, yep. I see it just about weekly. There is a new Ram that is running what looks to be 40"s on 20" Rockstars. I find those trucks to be useless.

Yea i have to agree they can have all the lift they want but when it comes down to it they have nothing useful, too big and only for looks, at least we guys use ours.

Well, I got my spare key today. I need to cut and program it. I think the rock key is pretty cool, and it is about half the price of the regular transponder key.

Hey now... I needed a spare, and that was the cheapest option I could find. Now keep your comments to yourself


JK. Everyone has their own opinion.

Edit: Why do you call it a phagish key instead of fagish?

Lol. I thought of Phat Farm too. The key is really nice. I had it cut and it didn't work. I was pretty pissed, but I ran back inside and they cut it a second time and it works now. Programming was very simple too. I think the finish over it is a Black Chrome. It shines, but it isn't silver, it is definitely black.

Well, here is the pic of the key after it has been cut. You can also see the fancy remote for the starter:


I was very glad to see the Jeep shut off when using the key (before programming). I wasn't sure if they messed with the SKIM system when they put the starter in. I have no idea how they manage to get around it.

paint the headlight bezels black, will look sick on your jeep.

Look at my signature to see how it looks as my TJ is white also with black bezels.

I was getting ready to do that, but I have light guards (came with the Jeep) in black over them. It actually looks pretty good.
