nope they wont cover the tire they just said that sidewall punctures happen

there isn't even 500 miles on them
and they have been in the rocks twice once on some sharp lava rock witch put some scary looking cuts in they sidewalls and once on some slick rock witch took out my sidewall

they are probably good tires if you run allot of fire roads but here in the desert we have allot of sharp rock every where and I just don't think I trust this tire to hold up very well

they pro comps I ran never got any scary sidewall cuts I did poke a hole in the sidewall but it was a piece of glass that did that I ran the xterrains in some heavy rock every weekend for a year and the sidewalls might of had some scuffs but no cuts

not saying that the pro comps are bullet proof its just a comparison

Change my tranny fluid, put K&N air filter in, painted my muffler black, and washed my Jeep.

Here is what my 6000 mile filter looked like when i pulled it out:

i was gonna get the warn but figure i could have one fabricated by this guy for the same price or a little less and it would be brand new instead of used. this guy is good. he has built a darn good looking rear tire carrier and he is only 22! looks like a master built it.

looks better than the nates4x4 style bumpers and its local and cheaper

Jherrin, congrats on the new jeeper since i gues yesterday was the bug bite day...

as the jeep.. i finally got a chance to take a long drive to my college and back with my new OMEs.

They are pretty soft on bumps however they feel harder on turns and such. Still not soft enough to where you cant feel the bumps but its much better than what i had. Now my tj doesnt feel like it will fall apart.

Today was big for me, it was the first time I took the doors off my wrangler. I baught it first week of december and i live in northern ohio, today was the first day it got to 46 degrees F. I had heard lowering the soft top below 60 is a bad idea but windows rolled down just wasnt enough. My buddy said why not take the doors off. So i lifted them off and stuck them in the back and it was AMAZING! I was a little chilly and I had a sweatshirt on but it was better then any convertible or T-Top ive ever owned. The love for my jeep I already had just grew ten fold. Someone shoulda warned me about something this addicting
