Looks good, not you just need some beefy/agressive tires. For the clunks check your driveshaft u-joints.

Thanks and yeah it sucks i got new tires about a month ago so i need to wait until i need new ones again. And i used plasti dip. I got it at home depot for 5 bucks a can and its lasted on my jeep for about 8 months now. The great part is that its extremely durable but if you change your mind you can peel the stuff right off. Its like a sprayable rubber but tough as hell!

You should hit the cladding with a heat gun. Mine looked just like yours.
Brought the color right back .

I don't think it looks that bad with the current tires. Can't wait to eventually do mine.
