Welcome back too by the way!!
Thanks RAZORBILL! Did the rubi spring thing on the last JK worked great.

Nice save on the third brake light...you'll have that JK looking as good as the last one, I'm sure..
Hey Joel!Thanks! The tires are Bridgestone Dueler AT's 255/70-18

So it sit's like the stock Moabs, huh? I guess they are using spacers on the Overlander.

Definetly had the spacers. Thats why I'm going inch and a half to bring it out even with the flares. Man I can't believe how far back these sit. I should have known by looking at the things, duh! One good thing though, the spacers are hub-centric! And they come with Locktite!

Sweet. This is going to look bad *** with match painted wheels. If you have some extra paint, are you going to hit the plastic step too?

Man, I really dig those AEV wheels the more I see them. Hub centric is the way to go.

A little update! Spacers arrived today.License plate delete panel came today. Rock Hard 4x4 license plate relocation bracket should be here tommorrow. Paint for wheels won't arrive till Monday! I hate it when things just don't mesh at once. Now I'll probably wait till next weekend to rip and paint.

Could'nt wait for the paint. I wanted to see if the wheels would look better to me if the spacers were on. Many warnings to make sure your hub is clean so I scrubbbed and painted first. They are hub-centric both sides. Then I appllied the lok-tite and torqued! I realy like the way its coming out so far. Paint is due monday so I'll wait for a decent day for that. There way too shiny. Also tried my old caps painted for a finished look. Still debating. Opinions on caps anyone?
