MB72s clear. No issues whatsoever. I went with the 15s mainly because of the price, also you get a softer ride, and more sidewall to protect the wheels from rock rash. I like the 15" look.

How'd you get the black off the grill? I kind of like that bumper look... much better than the big plastic thing that normally resides there.

It was plasti-dip. It's removable. Same stuff I used on my Moabs.

It was just temporary, basically ran like that during the shipping period of the Brawler Lite. It's very thin. Still have it on the side of my house, along with black fenders and a ton of other stock parts.

Bought a Bestop® All Weather Trail Cover in Charcoal - 81041-09, it is waterproof and it covers the doors, no issues or leaks - high quality and the inside is soft to avoid scratches.

Couldn't run with that 35 on the stock carrier for too long! (My friend gave me her carrier bracket to use in the meantime)

And I added the PSC LP6 w/ extended wiring and electrical harness, it functions as a 3rd brake and license plate light! Simple and effective.

Got a custom made License Plate Frame! BIG BLUE NATION!

Great build thread. I must say that is my favorite jeep color ever. I searched high and low for it but could not find it and had to settle for the steel blue color. As you might guess with my username, I am a huge UK fan. Heavily leaning going to UK for college. Your jeep is looking good man!

Thanks! I saw your user name not long ago on the JK thread. I got my Bachelors there, in Business Management. They have a great campus, and the land in LEX and Versailles is beautiful. Good luck!

Sorry I forgot to mention, it's the Genright in the aluminum version, with roll on bedliner.

I am a DoD Civilian working for the Army as a Contract Specialist. Currently supporting the UH-60 with new weapons technology, everything else is classified.

Thanks, sir! Only reason I could afford it at that time, was because I sold my extended service plan back to CarMax. Figured I voided it anyhow.

What else would you be leaning towards, makes no sense to have an alternative.

One last question about the air bag light, where did you find that Federal mandate about less than 150,000 miles needing to have the air bag components repaired/replaced? I searched but couldn't find squat.

Your JKU looks mean with the new wheels/tires. Nice job.

I am also interested in Baylor and TCU. I want to major in business and will either go into the Global Scholars Program or the SEAM program. I don't know which one I want to do though. Any advice?
P.S. Sorry for hijacking the thread!
