And keep in mind the price matching is for DELIVERED tires. I found some online cheaper, but they gouge you with shipping. So at the time I ordered, DT was just the outright cheapest delivered, period. No matching needed.

I didn't get any of the replacement/extra warranty/blah blah. The reality is these tires just aren't that expensive. I probably won't pop one, and if I do i could darn near buy a new one for the cost of all that add-on jazz.

Tough to guess on wheel prices--it's kind of a regional thing, varies on availability, etc. Check your local Craigslist and run some eBay searches to get a sense of your competition. Are you talking wheels and tires? If so, $100 each is pretty reasonable.

Otherwise, I think you've got it all covered.

good looking setup! makes me anxious to get my jeep set up with new wheels/tires. glad to also hear the review about the ride quality and effects it had on the gears/mpg/noise etc.

Thank you! I did not know that, so that's good to know.

I was just reading another post that had the specifics of the price matching policy. The tires I found that were cheaper did end up having that crazy shipping that made DTD the better price.

When you say you didn't do any extras, you didn't get the Ride Match for each tire either?? I agree about the rest. By the time we bought the warranty for 5 tires and then had to ship one back (we have no DT in VA), we'd almost be at the price of a new tire anyway. Thanks for the different perspective. You just saved me some $$ to put towards a possible Trektop NX or a stubby bumper kit!

As for selling my tires, yes, it would be tires AND wheels. I will start searching to get a better idea.

Thanks so much for this thread and your patience with a newbie. I have a long way to go but I've learned so much. My hubby gets so tickled when *I'm* the one bringing up jeep talk now. It used to be my eyes would glaze over when it was talk about his jeep. I guess it's different when it's *your* jeep. Maybe now it'll be his eyes that glaze over.

I also would have never known about the TL discount if it wasn't for this thread.

Give us a call today if you haven't already. We're a little behind on our responses here and on all of the forums we sponsor. We've been slammed with questions this weekend and this morning due to the current sale. Anyone here will be happy to help you.

DT gave me a $55 credit per tire, so I let them have them. That leaves me with my stock Mountain Edition wheels (Rubi wheels basically, but they're dark grey), which I may just keep for the sake of having my entire "special edition."

You can say that. Tried applying some creativity and paying tribute to the show. Most people don't know what it means and just puzzles them.

Looks great. I've been trying to talk myself OUT of "The Combo" and every time I think I'm all set, I see pics like this and I'm back to square one.

Do you have any other mods (spacers, lift)?

Oh, nice touch on the orange in the centers.

Thanks!

The Combo is great, no need to talk yourself out of.

No spacers or lift yet. Looking at 2.5 Terraflex or 2.5 AEV lift for the future. I have no rubbing or issues with the stock suspension.

MTH, is this Jeep Accessories - JK Bumper Caps the stubby bumper kit that you have? I'm new to my JK (had for a few weeks now) and I'm looking at that stubby bumper. Already ordered the light bar and I also will not be putting the lights on it.

Thanks

I'm not MTH, but I don't think Mike will mind if I answer. lol

Yes, that is the stubby kit he has. However, he has the older version which is made of plastic. The new version is made of steel and is powdercoated. It is also shaped differently on the sides. See below.

Crush - The Black Rocks soooooooooo good on your Jeep!!!

One question though. How did you paint the orange on the center caps? I thought about doing this but I would probably have paint everywhere but on the letters.

Yup, 4fit's got it.

Don't let the new version scare you off. If I for some reason had to do it again, I'd order the new one and chop that stocker in a heart beat.

Thanks!!! I love the look as well.

Painting the center caps wasn't to difficult. Just used touch up paint. There is a pen like applicator on it that works great. The first one I did didn't turn out perfect but after you get the hang of it its pretty easy. I steady hand is a must...

4Fit Thanks!!! Miss LOST too.
