Honestly I like the plain design of the moabs. And the fact that they are a cheap alternative to the stock wheels. I picked mine up off Craigslist for $150 for 5.

Main reason I got Moabs was because I hated the Chrome Clad stock wheels of the Limited. Also got a screaming deal on them with local pickup

PM me for details on Jeep

I installed a ARB Bumper onto my 08' GC CRD today ... well over the last few days. Quite the involved project, which included moding the bumper for the 08' grille ... probably would have been easier to buy a 05 style grille and bottom mount.

Anyway, next up 2013 Wrangler Rubicon rims and 265's

I was at the Boston marathon today cheering on 2 friends running it and luckily I was about 150 yards away when the bomb went off but my friends and I were leaving. But that first bomb sounded like it was RIGHT behind us. I haven't heard anything that loud since my Army days. It was absolutely crazy!

Well, there is definitely a story about how this bumper came into my possession and eventually made it onto the jeep. I purchased the bumper only from a dodge dealer south of Edmonton. They were going to sell it to me for 1000.00 but when I arrived to pick it up I realized it was missing the mounting kit. After a quick call to ARB USA I offered the $300 for the bumper, retailed 1450'ish. At the end of January I ordered the fit kit through a local ARB retailer in Edmonton. They have weekly orders to ARB and was lucky enough not to be charge shipping on the fit kit, that set me back $725'ish ... So I am into the bumper for a couple hour drive and $1100, not too bad.

Retailer: www.4wheelauto.com

Very serious mounting bracket that is air bag compatible. If anyone wanted to build a front bumper I would recommend buying the fit kit and building from there.

Glad you weren't one of the many injured. My prayers go out to the many unfortunate that were close to the blast.

HOOAH! I appreciate that a lot! We'll get the bastard that did this, Boston is a freaking tough city and we never give up, rest assured he or she will go down, guaranteed. I only wish I was close enough within safe distance to catch the bastard. A MA state police buddy of mine says they have a few people of interest right now. I also have been praying for those affected as well and I immediately gave blood at Mass General to help, it was the least I could do.

Thank you, everyone I know that was here in the crowd or running are 100% ok. Both of my friends that were running it had just finished the marathon about 5 mins earlier. I ran back to help but the BPD was holding everyone back almost instantly. So damn proud of their response! Love this freaking city!

Teacher at my school went into immediate surgeory. Shrapnel to the head, ear, and all down his side and leg. He's fine now, no permanent damage thank god. He's just a 22 year old kid, graduated from the school a while back, crazy to think about.

Are you refering to the small piece for the rear door? You have me a little confused since you said PW because that is the front fender not the rear.
