New Wheels, Like New Jeep

Thought I'd share a few pix of my new wheels and the stripped decals. I also yanked that silver plastic cladding on the front bumper. It looks like a whole new jeep! Next weekend: mount half doors all around, KoolBreeze bikini top, and driving lights. Enjoy the pix:

Very nice brother and great choice on wheels. Haven't seen those yet. Nice that you're rocking the hog too. That's what I'm talkin bout.

Thanks! ESP123, they are relatively new wheels -- they are ATX AX188 "Ledge". Got 'em at Discount Tire.

It looks awesome! Ever consider bedlining your door hinges? I think it would look really badass on your rig!

Hey Moalder, no, I really haven't considered that. Your talking about that spray-in bedliner stuff. I wonder if I could use that something that crinkle or hammered-look paint since I don't really need the protection of bedliner. My buddy has a Red Rock JKU and was talking about black hinges. Hmmm. . . maybe I'll do it.

Wheel size: 18x8 -- same as factory wheel size.

Thanks!

Yeah. Some guy on here with a rescue green 4 door just posted pictures the other day and it looked freakin' awesome! I think you should give it shot!

And I think the bedliner would look better because it would be the same color and texture as the door handles. They're right next to each other so I think anything else would look a little 'off'.
