TJ Look

Posted this in the wrong thread section by accident, so this is my second time posting, looking for cheap modifications to make my TJ look out of the ordinary. Attached is a current picture of the car, the wheels are stock but plasti dipped black and i can't decide whether or not to purchase black steelies or traditional chrome offroad ones help!

I have my wheels plasti-dipped right now and I love how they look for 6$ The only reason I think there is to buy new rims is if you're changing tire dimensions

What are you using that chain for? Hopefully not recoveries.

Your 16 sporting an IAFF sticker? How's that work?
This is how I store my chain.
It hasn't harmed my bumper any , granted it's not a mirror surface anyways.
But I kind of like your idea.

Loose the 30# of chain weight, unless it your way of making a confederate flag That alone will make your TJ look better

I can quit drinking anytime I want, but hey I'm no quitter :)

I'm a volunteer and my dad is paid so I just put it on haha, yeah I really don't need the chain, eventually I want a winch but I'm just not in the market right now

I'd probably keep the stock wheels. Not sure which ones you have though since we can't see them.

I think your TJ would look better if you removed the turn signal covers. In my opinion, those light covers are more suited for the street crowd and they don't really look right on an off-road vehicle.

What size are your tires and how much lift do you have?

Why do you need to put something there? I like the look of a stock bumper with nothing else.

I don't even own a jeep anymore

How about adding a 1" or 1.25" body lift?

Looks like you could use a little more room for your tires.

I like the stock Canyon wheels that you have. I'd keep them.

Function over form. Nothing that isn't needed should be there. When you're doing it right, function blends perfectly with form creating a work of beauty, and while a littler flare is great, just slapping crap on it will end badly for you and the Jeep.

Ditch the chain. Stop trying to "murder it out Bruh," and start researching mods that matter.
