New to the site need some help on upgrades
 
Just want to say great site. I have just purchased a jeep lberty 2011 sport. I have had two jeep wranglers in the past 2002 and 2010. I never owned a liberty. I wanted to do a few things to it.

1) Rims and tires i'm looking to get bigger rims and tire but dont want them to look stupid i want them to come out a little but still look like a liberty not a wrangler. Can anyone help? I have 16's now.

2) looking for a black grill and tail light covers hoping to match.

Anyone have any pics on any of these to help me out. Thanks again

1. 16x7s with 4.5" backspace & 5x4.5 pattern (stock is 5.5" backspace)

2. Rear lights: vht niteshades. Don't go too dark as heat will stay trapped in there and warp the plastic.
Grille: Plastidip or krylon.

I have 265/70/16 with a 4 1/2 inch back spacing.

You guys have any pic? i know what kind of look i want but dont know what wheel will do it. I'm looking to replace wheel and tire. I'm not looking to lift it right now.

As far as the light not looking for covers looking for guards front and back.

I have a 3 inch lift on mine and did some cutting or it would not fit. Check out the "What did you do to your KK today" thread. There had been plenty of pics and post about tires and rims.

Yeah I did a 2inch lift now I got more room than I want. I have 255/70/16 I want to go to 265/70/16 Do you have any more pics you can send me? Just like to see what you did and how are they having any other issues like loss of power?

Agreed with VHT niteshades, it's what I used on mine 3 layers so its more crimson than red or black.

Grille: plastidip ALLDAY

This is what it looks like when you plastidip your grille. Mine was already black, but wanted it to be flat, not shiny. I like it.
