i went ahead with some changes with my jeep!after i installed the light bar,which i really like by the way,the jeep looked a little bit tall and narrow imo so i thought that some wider tires were due...so i went with 32x11.50x15!the difference is only 1'' but the difference is really noticable!!much better imo!!enough of talking lets see some pictures of the tires and a couple little add ons: rear mopar tail light guards one more for tires

May I suggest moving the lights to under the light bar? I've seen that on a couple Tomb Raiders, and it looks pretty sweet!

jeep2008, small detail I just noticed: why not paint the gas tank cover mounting screws black? Would make the door disappear.

BEAUTIFUL JEEP!!

Nice work, Have you considered fitting the same front bumper end caps to the rear? I have just done it and also fitted after market LED reversing lights and numberplate lights instead of the stock plastic housing.

well,i hear you...what can i say about that ..the light bar has some pros and some cons,it is all up to the owner of the jeep to decide whether he likes it or not.the major con of the light bar according to a lot of members in jf is the branches of trees or obstacles you may find in the trails,but this is no problem for me cause i'll never find that kind of trails where i'll live and i don't have a low ceiling garage also.the only real downside i find in my light bar is the high profile of it.i mean i see no reason at all why they made the bar to be so higher than the jeeps top hard or soft !the rugged ridge seems to be a lot shorter but i'll know and have comparison photos in about a week from now and then we'll see again!on the other hand i trully believe that the light bar really helps on adding extra lights to your jeep and it makes the jeep look bad##s imo
