Before and after pictures.

We have chosen the Procomp rims with Mickey Thompson tyre 275/75/16-33"
No rubbing and the looks is absolutely awesome it makes a big difference.
Love it.
Next will be lift 3.5" "Tough dog". Can't wait...

Look at where he is from.

Did you all happen to notice the red tail lights on the rear bumper?

I just can't get the European bumpers?? They are massive. The approach angle has gotta suck with those. The rear bumper is fine but that front one wow! I am glad the North American ones are not like that.

I kinda like the rear bumper. I would see if I could get clear light covers and maybe try to work a pair of reverse fog lights in there.

It looks very nice, but after a 3 1/2" lift, I suspect those 33s are going to seem small. You might want to consider a shorter lift for cosmetics.

Good Luck

Looking good, except the wheel lettering. An eye sore to me. The front bumper just looks like a built in loveseat. Something to sit on out in the woods.

The letter has to be clean and in fact the front bumper, here(Australia) we call it " the table" ......

There is a 4 door at a dealer near me with a 3 inch rough country lift, flat fenders, and a 305/70/17 and it looks fine.

Actually what he meant was the lettering itself. Many people prefer to have them mounted with the letterin on the inside so it doesn't show. Simply a matter of personal preference. Don't pay attention to it. If you like it on the outside, you're fine. The tire dealer should have cleaned the blue off the letters for you!
