got a free set of 265/75/16s from a local kcjeepclub member, really low on tread but idc, they look so much better than those tiny 30s. and i got a full size spare from a local tire place for 15 bucks. not bad imo
Looks good! When I first put my lift on I flexed it out on a big rock in my front yard and several neighbors thought I'd wrecked it. one lady asked if I needed a tow truck. They probably wouldn't have thought anything about it if I'd done it like you did.

yeah it does blow, they are having problems with this one guy on second shift so they are switching things up for a while so that means third for me. oh well instead of a twenty five cent shift differential its now a thirty five cent shift differential

just gotta say. who the **** at chrysler decided it was a good idea that in order to unbolt the upper rad support you have to unbolt the latching mechanism for the hood?! my hood now doesnt latch and while rebolting it the bolts broke. WTMFF?! now i have no way of latching my hood down! just alittle pieved right now....

lol. yes i'd love to be "that guy". i'm thinking either find a way to fix it without removing everything again or doing a hood pin kit that you usually see on race cars haha. i mean it would work. just not sure how i wanna go about this haha
