I personally think JK's look good with an aggressive 33 and a 2.5" lift.
My tires are Duratracs and the wheels are Level 8 ZX wheels with a 4.5BS. The back spacing is the key.

Imagine doing the siding on your home? You'd never have to clean it again...

Edit - WOW! The cost would make it prohibitive on large projects -
I wonder if this stuff will work on those annoying bugs smashing on windshields!

It APPEARS to be clear. If so, the windshield would be a no-brainer. Looks better than rain-x.

Yeah, be careful trying miracle fluids. I tried Rain-X once, but found that if you don't keep reapplying it it's worse than not having it (IMHO)...

It's been floating around FB for a while. Jeep's FB itself may have even posted it as well.

Hitch cover from eTrailer. Works great. . It's been banged up a bit - was on my XJ for years before moving over to the JKUR.

I've never had a problem with Rain-X, but I'm using the rain-x washer fluid. Works great for me on my Cobalt, Havn't tried it on the Jeep yet though.

Start a new thread for it. Something like the plastidip threads. I wanna be sure to keep up with how people are using this stuff and whether it works as advertised.

I think it dries frosted so I'm not sure about putting it on your windshield.

Good thought, though. The bug juice on the windshield is out of control when driving on highways. It must be how upright the windshield is.
