Looks really awesome! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

I like the Basket, wheels, flares, tires, bumpers and suspension lift.

I would get black teflon center caps for the rear + spare <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Also tint <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Awesome, Truly Awesome <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

Maybe consider after market 15" wheels so you can use less expensive rubbers <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />.


Sorry to hijack. But I recently saw a post somewhere that they couldn't go to 15" rims on a new JK due to the calipers and rotors being a lot bigger than the TJ.

Food for thought.


You can run 'some' 15"s steel rims, the alloys are to thick but I've been told you can get 15 craggers on with no problem. A set of 5 17" 33's is about $500 more than a set of 5 15" 33's. Go figure they have less rubber??

Body Damage is Cool
Thats what I have allways said, same size tire + bigger hole in the middle = less rubber. To a tire company it = more money.

Thanks for the kudos guys!!!

Still a couple things to do...swap in the TJ coils, adjustable panhard bar(soon as Dave has time to figure out how much $$ I gotta give him), coat the bumpers, rails & rockers with Gator Guard, snorkel & the tune up stuff(have already opened up the exhuast & dropped in a K&N). Might look into the tint but the kids like the view without the tint.

Got the flares through www.stmparts.com . When I ordered mine I was told that there were only 3 sets left in North America. I'm pretty sure they're the EGRs. If I remember right email mike@stmparts.com to see if he has any left <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />.
