Just remember to put a bunch of layer (5-6 layers IMO) because you don't want the rocks taking it off easily.

Seems to peel off in bigger pieces too when you use more layers, for when/if you decide you want to remove it.

I did my grill about 8 months ago, I've power washed it, and other such abuse.I only did 3 layers and its perfect. I think on things like wheels and grilles less coats is better because it peels easier with more coats so in theory less coats makes it more rugged. Plus touch up is easy

They ALWAYS have a flat....they just can't see it, over the loud ass paint scheme.

I went to go look at an LJ at a local car lot when I bought my TJ that had 20" chrome rims and low profile "AT" tires. I asked if they would work a deal with switching them out for an offroad rim and real AT tires...they told me "No lots of people are running these on their jeeps" needless to say I walked off the lot.

I know everyone has there own likes and nobody should put someone down just for that. But come on you know how awful those tires must ride.... on any vehicle. I dont understand the necessity of a rim that large and a tire that small. What benefit could they have

I don't think the tires are hard to put on those rims, I think the tires are just 3 coats of plasti-dip, Maybe 4.

I did a little shifter upgrade! It really changed the look of the interior.

The knob is just a cheap universal one from autozone. Seems to be decent quality though. And the boot is made by BardoFett! It's cordura and it looks and feels really nice. And it should keep my jeep from popping out of second in the winter like the old rubber one did!

Low profile tires are not fun to mount at all, and to make things worse they're usually very expensive rims owned by a douchebag who will try their hardest to say you wrecked something. Not always but most of the time.

Depends on the machine, I mounted my 295/35/24's for my dually with ease. And yes, I did my own because they were about $5,000 for the wheels.
