It was a good night for the dumpster Jeep. I tracked down the wheels, they are in the bed of the rental. I also made the trek up north of town to pick up a Authentic CJ tailgate for the bed. It's rough I am not going to sugar coat it at all. It will need a new corner on one of the bottom corners. It will need a tap ran through all the hinge holes. But, it did come with good flip latches, and cables. Worth the 40$ I gave for it to me. A few hours of work and it will look like new again.

Pictures will be added to page 1 in a few days.

I mounted up 2 tires today. I feel like I will just run them silver until I buy the new meats.

It's funny you say that. I was just about to suggest the "as is" option. Not everything has to be gunmetal.

You know where else you may like that silver? On those J-e-e-p letters on the CJ gate.

I know, but that wasn't my point.

Yes but I was saying it would be easy and look good, so I was agreeing with you.

Think i am just going to run these.

It's going to take some opening of the wheel well, and some creativness with the flares to make this look right. That 37 measures right at 35".

The stockers then. They measure 31. I think Rubi tires would look great.

Just curious, how come you painted the box so early into the project?
