New Wheels, tires, and Custom Paint work

2012 Sahara....

For My Jeeps 2nd birthday I went all out! Treated it to NEW...
  • Wheels: 18 " Rockstars
  • New Tires: Goodyear Duratrek 33"
  • Painted bumpers white, handles, and mirrors black...
(if you attempt paintwork make sure you take it to a local dealer, pro painter or body shop! This was not a fun project! make SURE they have experience with painting textured plastic!)

Also replaced fuel cap door and got stainless black hood latches.

Now Im just trying to figure out what to do with the side steps! Now that everything is shinny I might just take them off until I can afford to get something black stainless.

feel free to ask me any questions

your gonna need AEV Procal to give accurate readings for ur speedometer. seems like thats the only thing your missing.

and measure the tires by hand...don't go by manufacturer specs when ur setting your calibrations.

nice jeep!
