My 2011 JKU Sahara Tan

Alright Dudes and Dudas,

This site has been awesome with so much knowledge and help that I am really glad I joined. I debated getting the 12 when but I got this 11 bc the time was right and I needed a car to get around. And the price you was a main factor.

It is my first jeep, I came from a 2005 VW GLI and I LOVE MY JEEP


Here is when I first picked it up


The next day I got some wheels/tires and few lilttle accesories


Took my baby to Key West and broke her in







I know people here ask what you would change about your Jeep or about Gas milage or highway noise or whaterver. To me, my Jeep is perfect. the joy it brings from driving through a lake, driving over fallen trees, makes me not even think about anything else. Oh and I wear a suit to work everyday and ppl get a kick of seeing me all dressed up, coming out a muddy jeep.

Congrats Pulga!

We sound on the same path except, you got me quick on the mods. They look great!

What size of tires did you go with?

Wil

One of the best colors for a Wrangler, ever, and now a rarity since it's been discontinued (what are they thinking??).

Congratulations!

Sahara Tan is EXACTLY why I bought a 2011 Sport "S". I love the colour and I get compliments all the time on it.

Hey Pulga,

Same question as some other, no rubbing issues?

What width are the rims? Gotta ask, trying to figure out how big to go with minimal lift.

I'm pretty sure they're 16x8 with 4.5 bs

I got these from a friend so I'm not really 100%, however I have no issues with rubbing

I assume those wheels are steelies and the Jeep is not lifted? Very nice look/mods and stance. Interested because the tire and wheel thoughts are burning a hole in my wallet. Cool Jeep!
