Just ordered the Falken Wildpeak A/T tires 265/70R17 at discount tire. I got 5 for just $935 with certificates of refund/replacement for all 5. Shipping was free. Pretty happy with the price I got and service was good also.

Sounds like the way to go

The first E came off somehow (they were on there really good) and I couldn't find it. So I took them all off. They were spray painted anyway so I'll probably get them again soon and plasti dip them and do a little better job. Definitly bummed that the E came off though

The tires are in and they look huge compared to the ones on there now.





My RC 2" lift and 1.5" wheel spacers should be in on friday and I'll hopefully get everything on soon.
I can't wait....

Sounds like after friday, the jeep will look pretty badass! Are you keeping the stock wheels on? If so did you consider plasti dipping or painting them black? Cuz i think that will match all the black trim you have.

Stock wheels are staying on but i plan on painting/plasti dipping them once it gets a bit warmer.

Your WK is gonna be sharp. You say you're probably gonna plasti dip the wheels - should look good! You should call it the Storm Trooper.

So i cashed in my plentiful change jar yesterday and decided to by some KC's with the money I had form it. Today I went to my buddy's house and we put 'em in. They're very bright!

I wanted the switch to be kind of out of sight but still easily acessible, I like the looks of the switch panel in the cubby hole to the left but only needing one switch for now, i decided not to go that direction. I also didn't want to have it just under the cubby. So after searching for a place to put the switch on the front control panel, we decided to put the it inside the small cubby on it. This way it would be out of sight and still rather easy to get to. This is what the switch looks like in the cubby...


We also cut a hole in the rubber mat that goes there and put it back in. I had to cut a little bit of plastic to make room for the connectors and wires on the back of the switch and it still barely fits now cause of the AC vent running to the rear row..


The final product looks good in my opinion and i'm happy with where the switch is


I'm hoping my lift will come in tomorrow, well today didn't realize how late it got. Plus its my birthday so I think it will be fitting if it does come. Happy new years

Lights look good man. I put my switch in the same cubby, but mines on the inside top. You should add on the stock fogs too.

The kc lights are a great add on. My wk didn't come with fog lights either and i could stand the cheap looking plastic covers. I paid 200.00 for the oem kit and aonther 45.00 for the jeep dealer to flash the computer.

That sucks they charged you to flash the comp. I pieced together my fog kit from RockAuto for $80 and my brother in law works for a Dodge Chrysler Jeep shop so he had them do it for me for free.
