I would mind getting the lowest cost possible, is daystar the monopoly on this? Or I'd another brand just as good?

I finally experienced it myself on a trip to WI, wanted to get the hood wranglers before my trip to FL but here I am on Daytona Beach w/o them. Didn't feel it nearly as much on the 1,200mi down as I did on my previous 300mi trip, but still there so will be on order when home.

Met another Jeeper at the Badlands with that bumper, he had a green LED setup behind the spider, but I think your reflective tape/foil tape is ingenious.

I recently was driving up in the mountains at 60 mph with 60 mph gusts and couldn't believe how bad the hood flutter was. I swear I could hear it slamming shut.

No more on the body

I agree with the both of you - I'll get around to that eventually...think I have a pretty good idea of where I'm going with those...one of two anyway, haven't decided whether I will do beadlocks or not...don't know that they're worth the extra $$ and the extra maintanence at this time, given my unfortunate proximity to quality trails and therefore the infrequency of trips. I think I'll wait until I have more substantial storage space and buy a second set of tires with beadlocks to throw on before going out.

Is 4.75" backspacing a bad idea? And is there a decent selection of 12.50" wide 37s? There's a set of wheels I really like...but that is my issue with them.

I promise I am not trying to copy everything that you are doing. But I ordered black Rubicon decals and a 3" BDS lift yesterday. I think I am going to have to hurry up and paint my wheels black before you do, haha. Looking great man.

Ha ha I will take every similarity as a compliment! Just don't move to Upper Arlington, Ohio or I might have to slash your tires

That's a good idea, I might have to powdercoat the wheels to tide me over...
