Ok, Its Official, I'm Back Sahara Tan Sahara Build

Ok, This one due to budget may take a while but heres how I plan on doing the build. First I purchased the Mopar Black Steel Snow/Offroad Wheels (5). The next phase will be tires, I liked the Dura Tracs, due to a lot of sipes on on road abillities, in a 33 inch. Thought of 35's but then theres the re-gearing issue I'm trying to avoid. Already De-Sahara-ized it a bit as I did my last one. Removed a couple of decals here and there and took off the bumper silver covers.The wheels will be painted the same as the body only in Matte finish. Will look for bumpers and level lift next. But will start wit a couple of pics in this new thread and will continue with follow ups if you guys like! And the last one.

I don't even like JK's but that one looks freakin' sweet. I'm rather partial to the desert tan and black combo though, kinda a desert tactical look to it.

That's better. The idea sounded bad but the pictures don't.

I like the color and the color matched wheel idea. Thats a good vehicle to make a build plan based off of. Im going in a similar direction with mine, hopefully right up to the tent on the top, but thats well into the future.
