Those tires are like what the old WWII Jeeps used which is appropriate for the look the builder of that TJ was trying to achieve. To me, it's a pretty nice looking TJ. And as Pakman55 said, there is no lift on it.

Oh Yeah!!! If you put those tires on a tj on wet pavement at highway speed you are def asking for trouble. I have these tires on both the WWII willys and the 51 m38 willys jeeps that i restored. The willys has no power and with these tires can get very skiddish on wet pavement.

They made a willys edition tj in 04,05 that's where it looks like he got the star on the hood. The willys came with camo interior mines an 05 willys.

A friend of mine put those tires on his Chevy 4x4 back when we was in school, 30 years ago, they would follow our buckshots everywhere we went in the mud. It came a sleet storm one night and we parked it on a slight sideways incline at my dads house. The next morning when we went out to get in the truck, it had skid down the hill into a ditch. They suck on snow and ice.
