Yep that would be the one. Stock for now so it doesnt stick out much, and I know there is another person around town with the exact same one (Red Sox spare wheel cover and everything).

And I would be down for wheeling some time. The only places I know of around here is a little trail down Haven/Lumber street, trails at Hopping Brook industrial park in Hollison, but I guess you get in trouble going to those and from what I hear there's some sandpits behind Walmart in Bellingham. If you know of any more that would be great.

yeah. i have a couple trails i go to. ive been to walmart pits with my explorer and its not that fun. theres like 2 or 3 mud pits in the way back behind the pits but nothing special. and going from mud into the sand in the pits deffinitely isnt a great idea haha.

youll probably see me around town sometimes. you know what my jeep looks like. ive seen a kid with the same color jeep and black wheels around recently but he has rocker gaurd and for the moment i dont. most of the time i have a bike rack on the back too haha

take off your side steps.. throw some paint on the fenders and paint the headlight bezels black and it'll be looking really good!

ohh and paint your wheels weights black so they dont take away from the black out look of the wheels i hate those silver wheel weights, they wont be as noticeable in black

Hurry up and get those nasty side steps taken off.....they really take away from the look. I'm sure you'll agree when you take them off.

yeah i had them off for a while when it was stock but my girlfriend has a bad knee and could barely get in. with the extra height after the lift and tires there was no way she would be able to get in. im saving up for some Smittybilt SRC Rocker Gaurds or some similar frame mount rocker guard/ rock slider with a step on it. that should make it look alot better

so today i went to a 'speed shop' in my town that is closing. they were practically giving away parts. i found a set of rocker guards and talked the guy down to 120 bucks. it was a steal. the guy said he bought them for 380 and was planning on selling them for around 500 before he went out of buisness. i plan on getting these put on on friday so be sure to check back for pictures. i have a couple mock up pics, but they are not intalled yet.
