Looks good dude. Still waiting for my 33's to wear out so I can jump to 35's.

Plasti-Dipped the wheels and hinges! Dipping is addictive. Luckily I ran out of the stuff.

I'm still enjoying the better ride I have with my 35's than I did with my wire out ATs the noise isn't really noticeable either. Glad I went straight to 35's and not settling for 33's

Got back from the dealer they flashed the PCM because I got a P0835 check engine code, for the clutch pedal. I'm at 36 400 km's or 22 750mi.

Hey Caveman, that happened to me too, but I sold one of my wife's Coach handbags on Ebay then bought several more cans!!! Look for things in her closet that she hasn't used in a while to plan for when you need more plasti dip!!

Replaced the chrome "Jeep" emblem with a black one made for the srt8 grand cherokee. Wish I had enough cell service at my house so I could upload pics... It's not a huge change but it is a nice touch I think

I don't get lost, just temporarily misplaced

No daylight shots yet most of the time I really only get to work on it between 7-9pm lol

And yes, it's the Smitty XRC Modular bumper with the lockable end caps and the light hoop is a modified one that was on there before (Off Camber Fab, I think). It looked weird with the Smitty hoop and the Off-camber one uses brackets to mount to the frame that you don't see with the stock bumper... ended up cutting up the brackets, welding them on and drilling holes so they bolt up to the bumper the same way the XRC hoop does.

Took a bit of effort and finger strength but it wasn't that bad. With a rag and some goo gone it took all of 10 minutes from start to finish

Decided to stick with Rigid Industries lighting.. and added a third to fill the gap on my front bar:


When on, the factory lighting system looks rather 'pale'.


My A pilllar mounts and Rigid wide beams should be here tomorrow! Sigh.... does the spending ever stop?!?

New shoes and MAJOR flex... (joke)

Swapped in some Cooper A/T3's (285/70/17) and tried out the sway-bar disco. Crazy flex huh? lol
