I almost bought 5 today with SRA's for $320 but the guy wouldn't go down on price and I'm still on the fence about this mod.

I've got the 17" JK Moabs in my garage right now, and some 35x12.50 R17 Pitbull Rocker Radials on their way to me. Once I get the JK axles swapped under and can run the wheels, I'll be sure to post up pics.

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

I don't have any good daylight pics yet. That's a good side shot though, well... for being at night.

I agree. 17"s are too big for a TJ, and anything smaller than a 16-17" looks too small for a JK.

Darn wheel wells on those suckers are HUGE!

I like them just fine. There is still plenty of sidewall on my 35's.

I put a set on my TJ just a couple of weeks ago along with a 3.25" RC. I like it so far.

Having larger tires on the 17" wheels make them look pretty good on TJ's.

I don't know what it is, but they look better on Eric's Jeep than Bennett's to me. NOT knocking Bennett's Jeep at all as it is a nice one. Maybe it's the flares?

I'm looking to see what it looks like with a 285/70/17 KM2 or other decent sized MT.
I am running 285s on 16" Moabs without spacers, I just put 2 washers behind the steering stops to keep the tires from rubbing on the control arms and sway bar.
