Those look great they are exactly what I would like to replace my MickyThompson II original (chromed/rusted junk) wheel centers with. Think they would fit?

As much as I want to go off about how tasteless and hideous that monstrocity really is to me, we all have to realize that everyones' styles and tastes are different. It may be a work of art to him, therefore I say kudos to having what you want (If that is what you wanted).

To me it's akin to someone else listening to nickleback, I may shake my head and ask why, but in the end it's all about individual preferences.


-I just wouldn't brag about either, in my opinion...

Seriously,instead of laughing and OMG'ing..we should let him know that there IS help out there.Do seek out advice BEFORE doing something to shame your TJ.
Wolf,if you read this...the bumper looks goofy,too long and just real ugly,looks terrible.I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder,but in this case,get a second opinion.

I have a blank sheet of plexiglass just incase i ever bust my rear window out on the trail or someone messes with it. I was driving down the road and it must have fell off a truck but i got a free $50 sheet of plexiglass. Go to Lowes and buy a sheet and make one until you can afford the actual glass. Just an idea!!!!

Insurance will pay for that window and they will come out to your house today and fix it....

Butt yet again young kids ( 25 and under)don't always cary full insurance.

The back window of my truck was broken .. wind damage ... No really ... wind caught the bed cover and broke the glass.
the insurance had a place nearby who came out and fixed it before dinner... No charge .. No rate hike ..

I think it counts as a safety issue ( or something )and the deductible doesn't apply .
I don't remember having to pay my deductible.

Give them a call It wont hurt to ask.
